Avett Brothers drummer Jacob Edwards has been dropped from the band after confronting guitarist Seth Avett about his infidelity.
Edwards was the lead drummer for the Avett Brothers from January 2010 until December 2012. He was let go after he and his wife confronted Avett about his affair with actress Jennifer Carpenter.
“Jacob and his wife are good friends with Seth’s wife Susan, so they were really upset when they heard that he’d been messing around on her with Jennifer,” an insider told Radar Online. “Seth’s marriage crumbled because of it. And so did Jacob’s career with The Avett Brothers.”
On December 5, 2012, Edwards announced that he was “suddenly and unexpectedly in the market for a new job.”
