Morgan Wallen and Paige Lorenze have made their Instagram relationship official.
Wednesday, after the country singer’s performance in New York City, Lorenze, 24, posted an Instagram Story of the couple hugging backstage to honor her man.
“I adore you. I am so incredibly proud of you, @morganwallen “The influencer added text to the image.
This week, Wallen, 28, kicked off his Dangerous Tour at Madison Square Garden with support from Lorenze and Ashlyne. Additionally, Lorenze shared a video of Ashlyne singing in the crowd.
Later, she uploaded a clip of Wallen performing a cover of “Cover Me Up” by Jason Isbell, which is featured on his album Dangerous: The Double Album.
The announcement on Instagram comes 18 months after the singer of “Whiskey Glasses” and his ex-girlfriend KT Smith welcomed their son Indigo Wilder in July 2020.
Lorenze previously dated actor Armie Hammer, and in March of last year, she came forward with allegations of unsafe behavior.
She told Vanity Fair that she began dating Hammer in September 2020, but they broke up after he “began dictating what I could and could not do.”
Lorenze stated that she ended the relationship via text message “because you never know what to expect from him — he’s kind of scary.” His attorneys later stated that all of Hammer’s interactions with “his former partners” were voluntary.
Wallen is currently on a nearly 50-date arena tour, which marks his return to the limelight following his involvement in controversy last year.
In February 2021, after he was caught on video using a racial slur, the singer’s music was pulled from the radio and his record label contract was suspended. He was deemed ineligible at both the ACM and CMT Awards, despite being nominated this week for four 2022 ACM Awards.
Wallen wrote that he was “ashamed and sorry” for using “an unacceptable and inappropriate racial slur that I wish I could take back.”
Later, in a conversation with Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan, he addressed his use of the racial slur and revealed that he entered a rehabilitation center following the incident.
