Sarah Roemer, the wife of Chad Michael Murray, apparently wasn’t very fond of Sophia Bush’s latest comments regarding her “pressured” decision to marry the One Tree Hill alum. As it was previously reported, Sophia, during a conversation on Andy Cohen’s SiriusXM radio show, said that she felt pressured to marry her co-star because everyone was telling her the show’s success counted on it.
In response, Chad said that he has always conducted himself professionally on set, and would always show up on time, despite Bush’s claims to the contrary.
And on Thursday, Roemer, 33, shared a picture on Instagram with the caption which read, “Wait a second…my producers also made me marry Chad Michael Murray!”
As you may know, Murray, 36, married Sophia, 35, back in April 2005 when they were in their early twenties. However, they got divorced just five months later, and the court finalized it officially in December 2006.
Andy Cohen pressed her on the matter when Sophia was on the show, because her claim came off a bit strange, because how could producers force her to marry another man?
Bush said that she didn’t want to “let everybody down,” and that people’s jobs depended on him getting to work on time every morning, and he would only show up if she was there.
And a representative speaking on the behalf of Chad Michael Murray said her statements were flat out “ludicrous.” The rep said Chad has always conducted himself appropriately, and her claims to the contrary are not a good look for either of them.
And if all the years that have passed haven’t made it WILDLY clear that we’re all grown ups who’ve become the best versions of ourselves, then I just don’t know what to say. And PS, if my teasing MYSELF on the radio today — for my past — hurt anyone’s feelings, I am sorry. https://t.co/K3VkUVP3pk

Chad and his spokesperson said he doesn’t feel the need to engage in this sort of dialogue anymore, because he has a happy wife and children. It’s petty, and it was over ten years ago. It’s time to let bygones be bygones.
And on Wednesday, Bush clarified her comments by stating that she was merely joking and “taking the piss out of (her)self.”
Sophia went on to claim that she has matured and chose not to freak out over the situation. However, she may have to be a bit more careful from now on, otherwise, she’ll come off stupid.
