Alexis Morley & Adam Schlesinger
It is unclear how long they have been together. A glance at Morley’s Facebook shows a photo of them when they won an Emmy in 2019. The award went to Outstanding Original Music and Lyrics for “Antidepressants are not a big deal.” He was also nominated for Best Original Theme Music for “Meet Rebecca” (Season 4 Theme) by Crazy Ex-Girlfriend. (Both co-written with Rachel Bloom and Jack Dolgen). In the Facebook post, Morley wrote: “Yayyy !!! Congratulations to Adam Schlesinger for winning an (other) Emmy this weekend!
On March 31, Schlesinger was reported to have been hospitalized last week in New York State due to the virus. Schlesinger’s girlfriend Morley confirmed her status to Pitchfork by saying
“He is on a ventilator and has been sedated to facilitate his recovery. He is in critical condition but his condition is improving slightly and we are cautiously optimistic,” Schlesinger’s girlfriend said. Contrary to some reports, he is not in a medically induced coma.
Alexis Morley posted a picture of two taking a walk and wrote, “This is the last photo taken of Adam and me, March 15. We went on a gorgeous, 4 mile walk that day with our friend @davidwatts1978, after driving upstate from NYC the day before. It sounds out of character, but in the past year Adam had grown open to, and eventually enthusiastic about, taking long walks outdoors (we just weren’t allowed to call them “hikes”). This one was “Poets’ Walk” in Red Hook. We’d gone there before, mostly because we liked the name and had lots of jokes about the “poets” we collaboratively conjured (we envisioned old, cartoonishly-tweedy guys, ambling, hands clasped behind backs, gazing to the sky in search of “inspiration”).”
