Rampant rumors that Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie's husband is missing and back on drugs are simply not true, RadarOnline.com can exclusively reveal.
A sober Mike Shay, 29, is staying with relatives after a huge fight with his wife last week, a family member reveals to Radar.
"He's been with his parents and brother. Everyone knows and has known exactly where he is," the source very close to Shay explains. "He's doing great, focusing on his family and his music."
As for reports that Shay drained the couple's bank accounts, the insider insists he took out cash from their joint checking account just to get by during their separation. Furious, Marie, 31, then shut down their accounts.
The stories claiming the musician disappeared in a drug-fueled rampage were concocted to thwart attention away from the reality pair's marital crisis and place the blame squarely on his shoulders, the source alleges.
"They knew people would ask questions when Mike didn't show up to the premiere," the insider says, referring to the cast's big L.A. bash over the weekend. "It was inevitable."
Shay and Marie, who wed in 2014, struggled on the Bravo show last year over her alleged controlling behavior and his admitted dependence on prescription pills. However, Shay soon got sober and their marital issues were seemingly resolved.
