On Friday, it was revealed that the six-month marriage of Colton Haynes and celebrity florist Jeff Leatham was laid out in a drawer at the morgue. The day before that, Colton released a new song called “Man It Sucks” on YouTube. Despite its title, it didn’t have anything to do with the oral favors shared between newlywed husbands. It was a song whose lyrics were clearly about cheating on your partner. Well, you’ve made an ass out of you and me when you assumed the ditty was about his newly ex-husband. Not so, Colton tweeted yesterday. Then it had to be about those matching beaded jackets they wore at their wedding reception because those were a huge amount of NOPE.
Colton tweeted in defense of his ex, asking everyone to lay off the guy. He also explained whom the song is actually about
Jeff would never cheat. He's an amazing man. Please stop being mean to him. The song I wrote was about a past relationship. ❤

Releasing a song about cheating the day before everyone learns that your marriage burned to the ground and the wind blew the ashes away would seem to indicate a reason for that particular house fire. But I guess it’s just coincidental? This reads like a backpedal but who knows?
It reads like Jeff’s being blamed by Colton’s fans for the break-up. Colton plays Green Arrow’s sidekick on the CW’s Arrow. That’s a superhero show. Those fans are rabid. They wait in line for hours at conventions and will slap their grandma if she has a differing opinion about which universe Nazi Supergirl flew in from. Jeff probably pulled up to work on Friday to find his florist shop’s storefront riddled with arrows and looking like the Visigoths tried to storm it.
