“So this email from my agent (a political liberal) today...,” Woods tweeted. 

The tweet included a screenshot of an email that appears to be from Kaplan with the subject “Well...”

“It’s the 4th of July and I’m feeling patriotic,” Kaplan said in the email. “I don’t want to represent you anymore. I mean I can go on a rant but you know what I’d say.”

Woods tweeted his response to Kaplan, although it is not clear if he also replied directly to the email.

“My response: ‘Dear Ken, I don’t actually. I was thinking if you’re feeling patriotic, you would appreciate free speech and one’s right to think as an individual. Be that as it may, I want to thank you for all your hard work and devotion on my behalf. Be well.’”

Woods has been vocal about his conservative politics. In February, he said he was blacklisted from Hollywood Foreign Press Association, which hosts the Golden Globes, when former HFPA president Philip Berk asked him if he would vote for Hillary Clinton if she ran for president. 

“During a press junket with HFPA, (Berk) asked if I would support Hillary Clinton if she ever ran for president,” Woods said in a tweet. “Never nominated again.”

Bennett himself confirmed the news on Twitter, posting “she said yes” with a link emoji.

Bennett’s younger brother, Taylor, shared the news in his own Instagram post.

The couple had a few rough patches before getting to this point. In May 2016, the couple separated after Corley filed court documents that February declaring Bennett was Kensli’s father. According to the Chicago Tribune, she asked the court for her to be Kensli’s sole caretaker. She also requested child support.

By March 2016, Corley amended the petition to say that she and Bennett were living together and that he has helped care for and contribute money toward Kensli. In May 2016, Bennett asked the court to declare him Kensli’s father and that he and Corely have “shared allocation of parental responsibility and reasonable parenting time.”

The couple has been dating since 2013.

Crow told Meredith that she has been recording with artists who she’s admired for a while, including Stevie Nicks, Keith Richards, Joe Walsh and Don Henley. She also used vocals from the late Johnny Cash on a song.

“I really love the record so much,” she said. “At the same time I think, you know, ‘How would I follow that up with an album?’ And I do think that albums as an art form are a little bit of a dying art form. People are more interested in singles.

“I’ve sort of made the decision in my head that the record that comes out next year will be my last full album and I’ll just start putting songs out, and that feels good to me. It feels great not to spend the time in the studio to make a fully realized conceptual album but just to put out really pertinent songs that feel immediate.”

Crow’s latest single, “Wouldn't Want To Be Like You,” is out now through digital distribution startup Stem.

“The crazy thing was (with) so much motivation going around it didn’t feel like it was really a race,” he said. “I love the people that were on the side of the road with their signs and giving away watermelon and beer. Welcome to Atlanta.”
