Vanderpump Rules' star Mike Shay posts proof of life after going 'missing'... as wife Scheana Marie declares the truth will come out
The new season has not even gone to air yet but already this reality show restaurant's drama is through the roof.
Less than a week after it was reported he had gone missing and cleared out his joint bank account with wife Scheana Marie, Mike Shay has resurfaced.
On Monday, the Vanderpump Rules star took to Instagram to assure family, friends and fans he was not in a drug spiral and was certainly not missing.
Not missing: Less than a week after it was reported he had gone missing and cleared out his joint bank account with wife Scheana Marie, Mike Shay has resurfaced posting a proof of life style snap on Instagram
The musician had reportedly sparked fears he had relapsed after he did not come home on Wednesday night, but denied he was anything but sober on social media.
Mike - who also goes by Michael - posted a picture of himself reading today's paper to show he was fine.
Posing with a paper is often dubbed proof of life and is used in kidnapping situations to show the captive is alive and well.
The 29-year-old certainly looked alive in well in the image, which he added a long caption to.
The truth will come out: As Mike declared he was doing just fine, wife Scheana said she was looking to the future. The star posted this image almost at the same time her husband did
Don't believe the hype: Mike (seen here in February) said he was not only not missing, he was also sober despite relapse fears. As for whether his marriage was in trouble, the star said he loved his wife
The reality star said: 'I am not missing. I am sober. I am Happy!!! Don't believe everything you read.'
Addressing reports that his marriage is in trouble, the musician did not deny there was an issue but said he loved his wife.
'I love my wife and will always love my wife. Whatever is going on between us will stay between us! I love my family and my family loves me and a lot of things have been said out is protection and anger by many people [sic]. I just ready for the next chapter in my life!'
Partying on: The musician had reportedly sparked fears he had relapsed after he did not come home on Wednesday night and allegedly drained his bank account. He skipped the Vanderpump Dogs Foundation Gala on Thursday night. Scheana attended with the rest of the cast including Brittany Cartwright and Stassi Schroeder
RadarOnline has reported that the star was in fact never missing but rather was staying with his brother and parents after a fight with Scheana.
Mike did not turn up to the premiere party for Vanderpump Rules' new season on Friday.
As Mike declared he was doing just fine, wife Scheana said she was looking to the future - but did not say whether that meant she was destined to be single.
Keeping up appearances: The 31-year-old reality star also went to the Vanderpump Rules premiere party on Friday. Mikes was reportedly staying at his parents house
The 31-year-old did show her husband what he is missing out on at his parents house looking very sexy in a cut-out body con dress.
The singer/reality star wrote: 'Looking into the future! The truth will come out this season on #PumpRules so stay tuned!'
The whole mess first became public last week when TMZ said Shay sparked fears he had relapsed after he failed to come home from a night out on Wednesday.
Shay has publicly battled with an addiction to prescription drugs, but had been sober since January.
As they were: It was just a week ago that she was pictured with her husband, with Scheana twerking for Shay as that danced at a Halloween party
After trying and failing to contact her husband of two years, Scheana cut off his credit cards but rather than get in contact, two days later Shay emptied the bank account the couple share, the website said.
Scheana is said to have been grieving the loss of a close friend, making her husband's absence from home even more unusual.
As a result of this week's exploits, a source told TMZ that Scheana was considering 'pulling the plug' on her marriage.
Special day: The couple wed in 2014 in a ceremony at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana, California
Long-term love: The pair were teenage sweathearts, with Scheana a cheerleader and Shay the high school football star
Despite her marital troubles, the 31-year-old actress and model joined her castmates for a party to raise funds for the Vanderpump Dogs Foundation on Thursday night and the following evening for the Vanderpump Rules premiere party.
It was just a week ago that she was last pictured with her husband, with Scheana twerking for Shay as that danced at a Halloween party.
The pair were teenage sweethearts, with Scheana a cheerleader and Shay the high school football star. They wed in 2014 in a ceremony at the Hummingbird Nest Ranch in Santa Susana, California.
