Approximately one million years ago (in 2005), Sophia Bush and Chad Michael Murray got married while filming One Tree Hill together. While their love died after only a few months, the drama lives on thirteen years later.

In case you've forgotten, Bush and Murray started dating in 2003 after meeting on the show. They got married in April 2005, separated after five months, and divorced in 2006. 

Over a decade later, Bush spilled the tea to Andy Cohen about her incredibly brief marriage on SiriusXM Radio Andy.


"It was not a thing I actually really wanted to do... Ladies have to learn how to take up space in the way that men are taught they are entitled to," she told Cohen. 

He then asked how she got talked into it if she didn't want to do it. "Because how do you let everyone down and how do you, what’s the fight and when you have bosses telling you that you’re the only person that gets a person to work on time and 200 people either get to see their kids at night or they don’t because our days start on time..." she elaborated.

Naturally, chaos ensued once the video was published, much to Bush's dismay.

Chad Michael Murray was obviously not thrilled by her story. His rep spoke to People shortly after hearing it, calling it "ludicrous."

"Chad conducts himself in a completely professional manner and would never marry for any reason but love. Thirteen years since his divorce from Sophia, he has a very happy family life with his wife and children. He has completely moved on and doesn’t feel the need to engage in this type of behavior," he told People.

Meanwhile, we're over here like:

But, wait! That's not all. Murray's current wife, Sarah Roemer, then posted this Instagram meme about the remarks, poking fun at the whole situation. Peep the hashtags for extra laughs. At least Roemer has a sense of humor about it?

The thing is, Bush apparently meant to "make fun" of herself with the comments, not attack Murray and/or their past. The whole thing just blew up way more than she intended. Typical.

She took to Twitter to set the record straight and apologize for her comments.


But like most things on the internet, the unnecessary drama continued. So Bush decided to leave one last note to end it. In a nutshell: she is NOT having it.


Bush just wants to have "substantive conversations," talk about her upcoming projects, her activism, and the good she is doing. So, maybe it's time we leave the past in the past, yeah? After all, it's been over a decade and we need more positivity in 2018.
