In the court documents, Hannah Lee Fowler alleged that Sam Hunt is “guilty of inappropriate marital conduct” and “guilty of adultery”.
Sam Hunt’s pregnant wife of five years, Hannah Lee Fowler, has filled for divorce, accusing the singer of adultery and “cruel and inhuman treatment.”
TMZ reports that Fowler submitted documents to end her marriage to the 37-year-old country singer-songwriter on Friday, February 18 in Tennessee. In the court documents, she alleged that Hunt was "guilty of inappropriate marital conduct" and had also been unfaithful.
While the couple hadn’t publicly announced they are expecting a baby, Fowler’s documents note she is due to give birth in May and has asked to be named the primary residential guardian of their child. She is also seeking child support and “transitional alimony, rehabilitative alimony and alimony in [the] future.”
Hunt and Fowler first began dating in 2008. They wed in his native Cedartown, Georgia in April 2017, a few months after getting engaged and after dating on and off for years. In July 2021, Hunt told Audacy’s TC & Dina that he and Fowler were trying for a baby.
He said, “We’ve really started thinking about it seriously here these past few months, so that’s on the agenda right now, and I’m hoping that we’ll have some good news sooner than later."
Last August, Hunt pleaded guilty to two misdemeanour DUI charges stemming from a 2019 arrest in Nashville and was sentenced to 11 months and 29 days in jail, but all but 48 hours of the term was deferred and he was to serve the remaining time in the DUI Education Centers, an alternative facility, rather than in prison. He was also required to complete an alcohol safety course and pay $1,599 in fees and install an interlock device in is car after having his license suspended for a year.

Hunt later apologised for a number of alleged indiscretions in song with the confessional track, Drinkin’ Too Much from his 2020 Southside album.
He said in an interview with HITS Daily Double in July 2020, “I was raised and taught to respect [alcohol]. Moderation is important. I’ve never wanted to glorify it. It’s a cheap trick in country music, and I’ve always wanted to avoid that. I don’t like using [drinking] as a party song; for me, that wouldn’t be honest. I’ve never been the guy who shotguns a beer. I know people who partake that way, and I wouldn’t want to shake my finger or look down on them.”
Hunt has not responded to Fowler's divorce filing and neither of them have made any statements about their marriage or reported split.
