The Voice S8: Where in the World is Anthony Riley? UPDATE

The March 23rd episode of The Voice had the fourth knockout fight AKA the first ever 3-way knockout between contestants Mia Z, Sawyer Fredericks and Paul Pfau.
Anthony Riley who had not been seen since his Battle Round victory against Travis Ewing, was not disqualified after all as previously speculated. Anthony had apparently quit the show for personal reasons as his coach Pharrell put it on the show.
Call me a skeptic, but I'm not buying that for a second.

Via MJSBIGBLOG and in turn Idol Forums, [] [] the only piece of speculation that made waves was alleging that he had refused to be paired with Mia and in turn he was disqualified from the show.
I wasn't buying that either so at this point, no real developments have been made in figuring out what happened with him.

Reasons beyond the vague umbrella term "personal reasons" speculation is the name of the game. If he failed to disclose anything from a criminal charge to a record deal in the past or being under contract while auditioning, we won't know until someone snags an interview. Keep an ear to the ground for anything from Michael Slezak of TVLine, Lyndsey Parker of Yahoo! Music or any other entertainment service with a niche audience for The Voice.
