Well, that escalated quickly! Pink recently admitted to slashing husband Carey Hart’s tires — and slicing her hand in the process — on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. By the way, this was after she set their bedroom on fire. Um, what? Watch the singer’s explanation for yourself in the video above, and don’t forget to subscribe to our YouTube channel.
On the “Burning Questions” segment of Ellen’s show, the host asked the singer, “What’s the dumbest way you’ve hurt yourself?” Pink responded, “Slashing tires.” The 39-year-old entertainer then joked that it didn’t happen that long ago and that they were Carey’s tires and during Thanksgiving. “The holidays are stressful!” she exclaimed. But the thing is, this isn’t even the first time the singer has spoken about the occurrence.
On the Elvis Duran Morning Show radio show in July 2012, Pink offered a little more information on the intense incident. She revealed she got 13 stitches from trying to slash a second tire on her husband’s car. According to her, it all started when “we went upstairs to my bedroom to have a quickie, and I left a cigarette in an oven mitt, and it set the bedroom on fire. And then I got mad.” OK, but there’s got to be more to it than that, right?
Pink said that the bottom line was, Carey, 43, was drunk and she didn’t want him driving drunk after their argument. That seems like a really extreme way to try to prevent such a thing, but hopefully, it worked?
Pink took to Twitter on February 15 to address the story again. She wrote, “The story going around about my slashing tires is from 2003. I have not harmed a car in 15 years. #reformed #twenties #passion #tires.” So much for it not being that long ago!
These days, Pink and Carey are married, and share two children together — 2-year-old son Jameson and Willow, 7. Carey recently received a lot of backlash for going public with the fact that he’s taught his daughter how to shoot a gun, when he said on his Instagram page, “I’m raising the kids with knowledge of firearms, how to handle them, shoot them, store them and avoid them in uneducated hands. #knowledgeispower.” Just a suggestion, but maybe the whole family should consider talking about knife safety too?
