FOX‘s American Idol returns tonight as the finalists prepare to take the stage and get image advice from Tommy Hilfiger. In a shocking turn of events, we have learned that they will also be kicking Jermaine Jones off tonight for concealing his criminal past! Read on for the scoop…
We have learned that American Idol will be kicking Jermaine Jones off the show tonight, as he apparently concealed his past criminal background from the show’s producers, according to TMZ. Sources told the gossip site that Jermaine Jones was charged with two crimes last year – one of which included violence, which is particularly bothersome to the producers. Jermaine then supposedly lied to police by giving them a fake name, and withheld the fact that he has two outstanding warrants from American Idol producers.
And we will watch it all go down tonight! Apparently, when Idol got wind of the news, they confronted Jermaine on camera, and the footage will be aired tonight. Jermaine Jones will make an appearance, but will then be kicked off the show. Ironically, Jermaine Jones gave the show a sob story about his father abandoning him 10 years ago, but his father recently spoke to TMZ, calling Jermaine out on the lies, and claiming that the pair see each other frequently.
Jermaine Jones then began to tweet that he had not told producers the sob story, which is exactly what led them to look a little more closely at his background, revealing his criminal past.
