A week afterÂ Ryan Seacrest reportedly convinced Crystal Bowersox not to quitÂ American Idol, the singer is speaking out about their relationship and alleged feud. Did she really almost quit the show? Was Seacrest the one to persuade her to stay? Is there tension between the host and singer? Does she feel betrayed by Seacrest? Keep reading for the answers to these questions and more…
After an emotional performance on Tuesday night’s episode ofÂ American Idol,Â Crystal Bowersox had a sweet moment withÂ Ryan Seacrest when the host offered her his handkerchief. This small gesture was apparently enough to quell rumors of an ongoing feud between them, a conflict Bowersox says doesn’t exist.Â According toÂ Crystal Bowersox, there is â€œno beef with me and Ryan. We were never angry with each other. We had a conversation. He gave me good advice and I highly respect him.â€
The conflict in question was over whether or notÂ Crystal Bowersox almost quitÂ American Idol. AfterÂ Ryan Seacrest leaked theÂ story that Bowersox walked off set and he was the one to convince her to stay in the competition, Bowersox was furious. She texted ousted contestant Kateyln Epperly that she felt “betrayed by Seacrest.”
According to Bowersox, the conversation between she and Seacrest was blown way out of proportion and turned into something bigger than it really was.Â ”We had a conversation, but it definitely didn’t go down the way it has been portrayed. We had a simple, civil conversation,” she says.Â ”I am not mad atÂ Ryan Seacrest. He is a great man. We just bumped into each other and had a good talk.” Bowersox also insists that sheÂ ”never intended on quitting”Â American Idol.Â ”It has been an amazing journey out there so far,” she adds.
