A few days ago, we heard the rumors that American Idol champ, Phillip Phillips shunned his family, forcing them to put their beloved Pawn Shop up for sale. Since then, Phillip has been questioned about what really went down – and you may not believe his reply!
Phillip Phillips, current winner of American Idol, was recently accused of not helping his family financially, leaving them with no other choice than to put their Pawn Shop up for auction to help them recover from some of their debt. When TMZ first reported this story, they attempted to contact Phillip, but were unsuccessful.
Recently however, TMZ did manage to catch up with Phillip Phillips, who did not elaborate, but simply told them: “I have no comment … but my album’s coming out soon.” The gossip site went on to add that Phillip reiterated that he does indeed love his family, but he refused to explain or elaborate on what was really going on, or even confirm if he has indeed shunned his family.
Rumors go on to claim that Phillips’ family has asked the singer for help on more than one occasion, and they are hurt that Phillip has not offered to help them financially. Hmm, weren’t they a close knit group while he was on Idol? And the Phillips family mystery continues….
