According to Us WeeklyMaloney accepted their Instagram Stories to share her thoughts on Shay’s comments on February 20, 2023. She uploaded screenshots showing text messages from Shay which she claimed were sent in May 2022.
“In May. After we talked in Vegas. I told Scheana I’m not into that shit. So on with diabolical nonsense. I was pretty clear that I had no intention of signing s***. So why go through with it. After you start laying some groundwork [sic]. Inviting Schwartz and Raquel to their birthday party (I didn’t) was very obvious but sure [sic] busy checking on me,” read the caption of the three screenshots.
In the text messages, Shay wrote that she believed Maloney “wanted.”[ed] Tom to keep going” and “encouraged [her] to push him to move on.” She stated that she had begged Schwartz to date because “that’s what [Maloney] asked by her.” The mother-of-one also shared that she felt Maloney was “happier” following her split from the Schwartz & Sandy co-owner.
Maloney admitted she seemed happy “in public.” She also noted that they “want[ed] Tom move on,” but insisted she “don’t need it [Shay] Helping Tom with anything.” Maloney then suggested that she didn’t think Shay’s concern for Schwartz was real, texting, “You just want to be there for him and make drama, and I’m not here for that.”
The “Good As Gold” singer explained that she was busy raising her daughter Summer Moon Honey Davies and worried about her career. Maloney replied that Shay “does it” for herself.
