After a split with girlfriend Julianne Hough last fall, Chuck Wicks says that he’s moved on and is now in a great place in his life. Chuck told Tampa, FL radio station WQYK (via The Boot) “It’s life; things happen. She’s a great person. She’s a talented girl. We had a great relationship for how long it lasted, but now I’ve never been in a better place. I think things happen for a reason. I’ve been focused on nothing but my music, which is a good thing. When I go someplace, I stand alone. It’s not like, ‘Oh, it’s Chuck and Julianne,’ or ‘It’s Julianne Hough’s boyfriend,’ so I like where I’m at. I’m at a good place. I’m happy for her. I wish her nothing but the best, even if it is with whoever.”
Although he says that he’s happy for her, Chuck couldn’t help but poke a little fun at Julianne’s rumored relationship with Ryan Seacrest. “She’s 21,” Chuck said. “You’re 40. You’ve got your hands full… It’s probably a rumor. Wasn’t she with Dane Cook like a month ago? Ryan can actually be her dad, so that’s cool. And Dane could almost be her dad, so she’s getting better!”
Chuck and Julianne will cross paths at next month’s City of Hope Celebrity Softball Game in Nashville.
