American Idol season two contestants Kimberely Locke and runner-up Clay Aiken once lived together as roomates and were close friends, but according to Kimberely Locke, that has all changed. Kimberely spoke to Access Hollywood about the present situation.
“Clay and I aren’t really friends anymore,” Kimberley told Access Hollywood.com’s Laura “Dish Of Salt” Saltman Tuesday at a rehearsal for the 2008 “American Idol Holiday Tour.”
“We lived together, but some things transpired and, you know, we’re just, I don’t really talk to Clay anymore,” she added. “It’s hard to live with someone. Roommates, boyfriends, girlfriends.”
In September of 2007, Kimberely wrote in her blog about the tension between her and Clay over a reunion concert misunderstanding. At the time, Kimberely, Ruban and Clay’s managers and agents were in talks for a tour. Kimberely spoke to Billboard about the idea, upsetting Clay.
Kimberely stated in her blog, “I told Billboard I was “hopeful” that the tour would come together. (That didn’t get printed.) In no way did I imply that we were all committed to this tour idea. So contrary to Clay feeling “unfortunate,” that the story “found it’s way to the press unauthorized,” it was not “unauthorized.” It was put out there my me, who conceived the touring idea and called my friends for their involvement.” Kimberley added, “If Clay had chosen to return my phone calls over the last two months, he would perhaps not feel as “unfortunate,” and he would have been made aware that I mentioned it to Billboard.”
The tour never did take place and Kimberely said on her blog, “I want to thank the fans of Clay and Ruben and my own who were positive and supportive of this idea, which again, was just an idea. It will now be put to rest.”
Kimberely has moved on from the misunderstanding andher past friendship with Clay. She is about to embark on a 15-city holiday tour with another group offormer American Idol Finalists and new friends; Diana DeGarmo, David Hernandez, and Chikezie!
