“It’s astonishing and jarring that Kelly would make a dig like that at Ryan. It shows there are some serious cracks in their relationship," a source said https://t.co/D508YKhxt6— Page Six (@PageSix) February 28, 2018
On Live With Kelly and Ryan this morning, Ryan Seacrest wasn't wearing his shoes for some reason and Kelly Ripa said: “What is going on? Something pretty major is happening … Do you want me to put your shoes back on for you? I’m a mom, I can do that.”
Page Six says she was taking a jab at him by referencing the allegation that he assaulted his stylist while she was tying his shoes.
E! put out a statement making it clear that they were standing by Ryan and he would be hosting the Oscar red carpet coverage as usual. However, the higher ups at E!'s parent company NBC are having meetings about whether or not that can actually happen after seeing the responses from various publicists who are telling their clients to steer clear of E! on the red carpet.
His 25 year old girlfriend defended him on Instagram.
