Many people think of My Chemical Romance as the band that they used to frequently listen to in middle school – comforting, familiar, and drama free for the most part.
But as of Saturday, a rumour of a cheating scandal involving bassist Mikey Way has exploded over the Internet, and fans are livid.
Mikey Way has allegedly been having a secret affair with 19/20-year-old Sarah Cantergiani whilst still married to his wife, Alicia Way, approximately since mid to end of December.
Pictures of Way and Cantergiani initially surfaced on Cantergiani’s personal Instagram account, but have now been dispersed throughout the internet.
Mindless Self Indulgence bassist, and sister-in-law of Mikey Way took to Twitter yesterday and Tweeted things such as: “Disgusted” and “I can only assume you wanted people to know…Sloppy. have you no shame????”, but she instantly deleted them only minutes after tweeting.
Fans have also taken to social networking sites such as Twitter and Tumblr to express their feelings regarding the situation.
“I’m kind of disgusted in him. It’s plain to see the whole thing is ripping things apart even his family so on Mikey’s part, it was a pretty shitty thing so do and to even try to hide it,”said Ashley Miller, a My Chemical Romance fan on Tumblr.
“I think it’s a shame that their (Alicia and Mikey’s) relationship couldn’t stick out, because they looked really happy, and their matching tattoos are going to be difficult to get rid of, but I think as soon as people fall into love, they fall out of love too,” said My Chemical Romance fan Jessica Maxwell.
