Just hours before performing for the last time on American Idol, Crystal Bowersox and her boyfriend, Tony Kusian, called it quits. He then left Los Angeles to return to Ohio, missing out on one of the biggest moments in her life. Despite the bad timing, Crystal Bowersox defends the decision to break up and stands up for her ex-boyfriend (who has been receiving hate mail). Keep reading for more details on what Crystal Bowersox wants you to know about her ex and their split…

Crystal Bowersox had one last opportunity to perform for the American Idol judges and at-home viewers before her fate would be decided. It doesn’t seem like the ideal time for her boyfriend to dump her and leave her alone in Los Angeles, but that’s exactly what happened. Just hours before her final performance on the FOX singing competition, Crystal Bowersox and boyfriend Tony Kusian broke up and he left California to return to Ohio. Although the timing was poor, Crystal Bowersox defends the decision to end the relationship, saying it was a mutual decision. These days, she wants to set the record straight for her fans who are sending hate mail to Kusian.

“I feel like he’s getting portrayed as this person who up and left me on the biggest day of my life and that’s not the case at all,” Crystal Bowersox tells Redbook magazine. “I mean, he’s getting hate mail and horrible messages online. So I want to make clear how amazing, kind and generous a person he is.”

The American Idol runner-up goes on to describe her ex-boyfriend as the “perfect man” and says the breakup was a mutual decision. “We both knew it wasn’t going to work out, considering the different lives we were leading,” she says. “And it’s better to come to that realization than to have an unhappy relationship.”
