Colton Haynes speaks out for the first time since splitting up with his husband

Newlyweds Colton Haynes and Jeff Leatham have decided to go separate ways after just six months of marriage.

Rumors of the breakup began swirling last week after Haynes deleted all the pictures Leatham from his Instagram page. Then on Thursday, he released a new song called “Man it Sucks (Acoustic)”, which recounts a failed romance after one partner cheats on the other.

Many speculated the song was about Leatham.

Well, it turns out they were wrong. In his his first statement since the rumored break-up, Haynes tweeted that the song is actually about “a past relationship,” though he didn’t elaborate beyond that.

Haynes called Leatham an “amazing man”, writing: “Jeff would never cheat. He’s an amazing man. Please stop being mean to him. The song I wrote was about a past relationship.”

Fans were quick to offer Haynes their love and support during his difficult time:

Here’s hoping these guys can work out their differences.
