Re-tiling around fireplace


I am re-tiling around fireplace floor and inside mantle before I put down laminate flooring. I had no problem removing tile on floor, but when I started to remove the tile surrounding fireplace inside the mantle I see it was grouted directly to drywall and pulling drywall off with it. Before I go any further...am I going to have to put new drywall underneath it all if I do this? I've tiled floors before but not on wall. Thanks!

If it was mine I would just remove the drywall and replace it with tile board.

That's what I'd do too.
