Scotty McCreery was just crowned as the winner to American Idol. After what looked like a lip lock with Lauren Alaina, is it possible the country crooner has snagged himself a girlfriend along the way? Keep reading to find out if the two are indeed an item!
At the end of the finale, to some it appeared that runner-up Lauren Alaina leaned in and planted a big smooch on winner Scotty McCreery. PopEater reports that just after the smooch, Entertainment Tonight asked what their status was. She replied, “He might be my boyfriend…ask him.” Scotty had a different take and said he is “still single.” However, he does admit to having a bond with her and that they have “gotten really close, but I don’t know about the more than friends stuff.”
As the Idols Live Summer tour prepares to embark, will the pair get even closer and make things official for their millions of adoring fans? Is Scotty just holding out and playing the field for another young lady? He admitted, “The ladies weren’t like this back before ‘American Idol,’ it was tough on me back home.”
If they are indeed an item, it will be tough for them to hide it amidst media scrutiny and touring together. This would not be the first Idol hookup. Former winner David Cook dated former contestant Kimberly Caldwell briefly. It has also been rumored that this season’s contestants Haley Reinhart and Casey Abrams might be hooking up. It seems the show has turned into the ultimate dating grounds!
