Mike Shay's friend and bandmate, Nicole Arbour, is coming to his defense. Following allegations claiming Shay had gone missing and possibly relapsed, Arbour is speaking out against Shay's wife, Scheana, and telling all about the "Vanderpump Rules" divorce.

In an interview with Radar Online on December 2, Arbour revealed that at the time Scheana claimed her husband was missing, he was actually performing -- and the reality star knew exactly where he was. In fact, Arbour claimed Shay was on the red carpet and according to Radar Online's report, she shared a video of them together on Instagram during the event.


In addition to confirming the stories of a missing Mike Shay were completely false, Arbour went on to suggest that his divorce was "definitely Scheana’s fault." Arbour even claimed Scheana had tried to sabotage her husband's live show out of jealousy.

Was Mike Shay getting more attention than Scheana Marie could handle?

"She’s jealous that [Mike Shay] was getting more attention than her,” Arbour claimed, revealing her belief that Scheana made up the allegations of drug use against her husband in an effort to solidify her "Vanderpump Rules" season five story line.

"That’s what sparked [Mike Shay and Scheana Marie's] breakup,” Arbour said.

Nicole Arbour went on to slam "disgusting" Scheana Marie for throwing her husband under the bus when he's been completely clean and sober. She also said Shay was happy and busy working on something he was passionate about.
