is reporting that Chad Michael Murray got so jealous of an actor flirting with his ex-wife Sophia Bush on the set of One Tree Hill that he got him fired. Which of course is ironic because he is engaged to an actress who was an extra on the show and is rumored to have had a fling with Paris Hilton on the House of Wax set?
Rumor has it chad was not with John Cates, who played his rival on the show. A friend of Cates said that, "Chad told producers, 'It's no more John Cates or no more Chad Michael Murray,' because he thought John and Sophia were flirting." Another insider said, "Chad was a terror to work with. Writers kept plotting him and John against each other, and Chad took it seriously. He told everyone on set he couldn't stand John, and finally producers wrote him off the show." Both Chad's people deny the story, but Warner Bros. who produce the show said, "Casting decisions are made by the studio, the network and producers. This guest star's story line was wrapped up, and production moved on." Hmmm sounds like they are hinting there might have been some rivalry between the two. But then again I need my One Tree Hill drama because the show won't be back until mid-season.
