Last Friday, podcast co-host Gavin DeGraw, 42, attended the MusiCares Person of the Year tribute in Los Angeles. There he shared about his co-host and athlete Brooks Laich who is surrounded by rumors that there are problems in his marriage.
Speaking about the professional hockey player, DeGraw said: “You know, he’s doing very well,” before adding that the star was “doing absolutely great.” The singer did, however, admit that he didn’t know much about Laich, 36, and Julianne Hough’s marriage.
The “I Don’t Want to Be” revealed that his co-host hadn’t been very forthcoming about his marriage. DeGraw could only share this: “So everything seems healthy and fine.”

The rumors were intensified on December 31, when the professional dancer was seen without her wedding ring. She was spotted without the ring while co-hosting NBC’s New Year’s Eve with Carson Daly.

Derek Hough and his girlfriend, Hayley Erbert, met with them at the Nobu Hotel Los Cabos. The couples were also joined by “Dancing with the Stars” alum Brooke Burke and her boyfriend Scott Rigsby.
