Former American Idol contestant Michael Lynche made it to the top 24 in the competition, but was allegedly dropped because his dad spilled the beans to The St. Petersburg Times.
The New York Post cites Joe’s Place, an American Idol spoiler site, in their story, adding that Fox did not comment, but that Michael was dropped over the weekend.
American Idol requires that all contestants and their families keep the Hollywood week results under wraps. There will surely be many uncomfortable dinners in the Lynche household over the next few weeks! (People)
