There's been a lot of talk about Corey Perry lately. The Chicago Blackhawks put him on waivers, and officially terminated his contract today due to 'disturbing, unacceptable behaviour'.

Social Media Stir with Melanie Bedard



Things got messier when people started saying Perry was involved with Melanie Bedard, Connor Bedard's mom. Social media, like Reddit and the old Twitter, was full of rumors about them.

The team's GM, Kyle Davidson, shut down the rumors fast. He said no other players or their families were involved, calling the rumors untrue and awful.

Insiders and GM Davidson are saying nothing happened between Perry and Melanie Bedard. Perry's actions, whatever they were, seem to be something the Blackhawks want to distance themselves from, especially given the team's history.



As Melanie Bedard tries to avoid the constant attention, it's not easy. With Perry, her son, and herself making headlines nonstop, it shows how social media can affect people and their families.

**UPDATE**

Perry has issued an official statement, and it can be found below:
