Are Adam Lambert and Kris Allen in Offstage Idol Feud?

Lambert_allen

Adam Lambert and Kris Allen, who I previously reported are roommates at the American Idol mansion, are apparently "locked in a bitter feud" if you believe the National Enquirer.

An "insider" tells the tabloid in its May 4 issue: "Although they are friendly on the surface, there's a major culture clash between Adam and Kris. Adam is gay and avery flamboyant guy from L.A., while Kris is a conservative married man from a small Arkansas town. He's usually very easygoing and tolerant, but it's as if he and Adam are from different planets. And since Adam feels he has become the front-runner in the competition their relationship has become very strainged. Kris believes Adam has become arrogant and incredibly fulll of himself….Adam and Kris now go for long periods of time without speaking to one another. You can cut the tension with the knife."

According to the tab, "Kris often complains that Adam leaves clothes, nail polish, and other accessories all over the room they share…and Adam refuses to change his messy ways…The tight personal space is cramping both their styles and they're taking it out on each other."

Boy Culture has a scan of the item.

Of course there's nothing a tabloid loves more than a bitter feud. I'd expect Lambert to have  a bigger issue with Gokey but then again, it isn't always easy to share a room.

    toss in the fact of kris NOT being the front runner and of course he is bitchy.

    If Kris was the front runner the article would be about adam bitching about Kris

    guys whether straight or gay can be far more bitchy and catty than girls

    i don’t know whether it’s true or not but i do know that i’d start being pretty annoyed if i had to share a room with someone who never picked up his shit.

  3. Brent says

    Yuck! I’d like to think that they are the best of friends despite their differences. It seems that’s how it’s been presented by Kris himself on a past show, so bollocks to the Enquirer. Besides, Kris is just dreamy :)

  4. Craig says

    Oh puh-lese! The show is just trying to gin up drama as we get into the final weeks. There is bound to be tension (it is a competition) my guess is that they’re all too busy and/or tired to deal with any of this shit.

    The National Enquirer is a known repugnicon front. It’s the most homophobic rag out there. All it is doing with this bullsh*t story is exactly what Bill O’Reily was trying to do…get it’s conservative base to vote against the despised GAY and vote instead for the pretty little Christian. I love Kris personally, as I do Adam, and I am positive this story is a bunch of cr*p made up to turn voters off Adam. How do you leave nail polish laying ALL OVER the room? Such cr*p. Its just thrown in there to make the gay look bad. This is just one more despicable gay-h*ting act by those neo-na… err, conservative creeps.

    @ peterparker – Oh, puh-lease. The Enquirer also brings us such news-worthy stories such as George Bush meeting with aliens. For any “legitimate” story they break, they run at least 500 other ones made of BS.

    Sorry, I honestly doubt they’re fighting. Adam’s really news-worthy right now apparently, and he sells. Not just music – he sells newspapers and magazines too. If the NYT wants in on that action, I’m not surprised the Enquirer would too.

    Also: pretending to be friendly – you can always tell by the body language. There’s plenty of pictures of them hanging out backstage being very friendly and relaxed. *rolls eyes*

    And let’s rely on the always accurate National Enquirer for the truth, eh?

    Lol. Double Lol. Adam arrogant? I have watched Adam on the show and have heard numerous commentaries from those who have known him and worked with him for years. Arrogance never mentioned once.

    This is just NE being homophobic and trying to create a scandal where none exists to sell magazines. How out of character for them…

  8. troublesfree says

    This info is bogus. The nationalenquirer.com does not even exist.

    Another sick propaganda to ruin both Adam & Kris.

    I have a feeling that this unhealthy item is devised by a group supporting another finalist that hates the fact that it’s an Adam-Kris final in the end.

  9. Ivan says

    I believe – from Kris’s last week’s performance that Adam is helping him with originality and mixing up his songs and taking risks. Kris didn’t have one shred of originality until the past two weeks – coincidence? Doubtful.

  10. Raven says

    Has anyone seen where they are staying? There is nothing cramped about it. You could probably fit the top 5 in the hot tub alone. This isn’t only rag material but they are trying to cause tension using the gay vs christian line of bs.

  11. Troy says

    The National Inquirer’s a Republican azz-wipe that wants to paint Adam as evil and Kris as good. The right wing is doing its best to get the bible swingers to vote against Adam and Kris is their vehicle. Don’t be fooled people nothing to see here, move on, move on, clear the area let the traffic pass.

  12. FizziekruntNT says

    Well, if that’s the case, Lambert can cramp my tight personal space anytime! Or I’d be happy to cramp his. Oooh, I just love Friday nonsense!

  13. Tracy S. says

    Another well researched document frm the National Enquirer. I would have thought that at least your site wouldn’t be stupid enough to fall for this crap. If they had done their research properly they would have discovered that Adam is a “neat freak” so to say he leaves things elsewhere is laughable. Guess it must have been a slow news day or something!!

  14. Kae says

    LOL…In an interview a few weeks ago, the AI contestants said they all had their own rooms now since so many others had already gone.

    NI did not check its facts before publishing. :)

    Disgusted American,

    You do realize that most people who live in Arkansas are not country bumpkins anymore than Bill Clinton is. There are a lot of rednecks and conservatives here but that is true of everywhere in the South. We also have the problem here of conservatives from other parts of the country moving here and making the state even more conservative then it already is.

  16. Ronny says

    Nonsense – Can’t you see they are LOVERS???? It’s so obvious (I can’t blame kris – Adam is so attractive). If they had any argument, it’s only because the love each other. Besides, no one forces anyone to share the same room, especially now, when they are so many rooms available.

  17. Steve in Concord says

    How much mess can one bottle of black nail polish make, since it occupies about one square inch of space? Why don’t they just swap room-mates or move into Anoop’s now-vacant room. Doesn’t a mansion with a basketball courtbhave more than five bedrooms?

  18. Madeleine says

    Another sick propaganda to ruin both Adam & Kris.
    You have to be really dumb to believe all that crap!!
    Another case of dumb and stir-shit journalism…
    fyi, they all have their rooms now that so many contestants are gone

  19. UGH says

    One of the reasons this tabloid is so full of bullshit – aside from the fact that it’s The bloody Enquirer, these two are the two closest contestants, clearly get on like fire and are ALWAYS together, is the fact that Adam is a total clean freak – Kris even said in his Confessional he loves that about him.

  20. hahahah says

    LOL FAIIIIL. SO MUCH GAY PANIC. OMG THIS NICE MARRIED CHURCHY GUY HAS TO PUT UP WITH HIS FLAMBOYANT GAY ROOMMATE LEAVING HIS GODDAMN NAILPOLISH AND OTHER GAY SHIT EVERYWHERE!

    Even the pictures they used tried to emphasize it with the whole “ZOMG LOOK AT THAT PICTURE OF HIM LOOKIN’ LIKE A DIVA VS. WHOLESOME CHRISTIAN DUDE!!!”

    God forbid a straight man and a gay man be FRIENDS.

  21. Kristen says

    This is so silly. Kris, in Idol Extra said that Adam has lots of words of wisdom and is really a great guy. And in many of the confessionals they both speak very highly of each other. This is just trying to make a bad name for Adam, and its irritating!

  23. ughhh says

    What complete & utter tripe. Adam’s had his emotional sh.it kicked out of him since childhood, has been ridiculed & tormented because of ignorant bigots & their gross prejudice & he’s going through all this CRAP again every day. Why? Because he’s the frontrunner & GAY, good God! The stereotypes & generalizations in ignorant sh.it-stirring articles like these & some of these comments I’ve come across are disgusting. Yet he handles himself with so much f-n GRACE. He is nothing but humble, selfless, respectable, accepting of others. There is nothing else he can do. You just have to show people again & again you have a good heart & are human like everyone else until they accept you as one. The night when he sang Black Or White (the message was so clear) & Randy said “Adam, I love you just the way you are baby” pushed him to TEARS.

    Adam & Kris are the two nicest, genuine people this year.

    Funny they both said they love sharing rooms BC they’re both so tidy. On Extra, when asked who they all lean on, who takes care of everyone & who they all go to for advice, they all said Adam then Kris said with the most genuinely fond smile, “He has so many words of wisdom & is just a really great guy.”

    What was the point of this gay-fearing article? Seriously? Idiots. I hope these two guys are the last two standing.

  24. RP says

    An article from the National Enquirer?! Really… I mean, seriously?

    We don’t need daily posts on this kid, much less any from the freaking National Enquirer.

  25. Michael says

    In an Idol Extra interview there was a question who the “camp counselor” is, and all the contestants pointed at Adam. The most articulate was Kris. He emotionally said that Adam always has words of wisdom and he is just a great guy.

  26. Mark says

    I’m an out Gay man and can’t stand crazy faggots. They’re always acting out and sucking the oxygen out of every room. Then they get hostile and passive aggressive when you don’t pay attention to them because they MUST be the center of attention ALL the time.

    Basically they are “clowns”. They act like clowns to mask their sexual insecurity.

  27. rex says

    “Maybe Adam just stirs up feelings in Kris that he doesn’t understand (wink)

    haha

    let’s hope so…

  28. MrHotty says

    I don’t believe it. The insider is probably the show’s producers trying to drum up some controversy for ratings. This week both Adam and Kris were hanging out with each during practice. They were hanging out together during the baseball “first pitch” or whatever those straight guys call it.

    Kris stuck up for Adam when TMZ tried to weasel gossip out of Kris about Adam just last week.

    I think it is all B.S.

  29. says

    I’m glad most of the readers don’t believe the NE story. Such a low blow to capture readers’ interest. Being Christian nowadays means being tolerant and understanding. And Kris, as written in most articles about him, seems a nice guy. I like both Adam and Kris. I hope they’ll be the two finalists.

  30. Eliza Doolittle says

    I find it hard to believe that these contestants have to share rooms. They are in a huge mansion, not kids at summer camp. Both Adam and Kris strike me as polite, cordial people. Adam is the front runner, no doubt about it! He is brilliant.

  31. K says

    This is so untrue….
    I know Kris and his family and his mom says that they get along just fine! In fact Adam told Kris’s parents that he was one of the nicest people Adam had ever met. Very nice of Adam to say…..
    This source is very unreliable….

  32. Warmsun says

    I’m trying to figure out why it would even be cramped in the Idol house in the first place. I mean, do the kicked out people still stay there or something? Wouldn’t you think that if the losers moved out, at some point the rest of the contestants would get their own room?

  33. Krypton says

    Just for the record, the contestants where given the opportunity to have their own rooms and guess what, Kris and Adam opted to remain roomates.

  34. says

    I was shocked and pissed last night that Adam was put on the spot then sent to the final 3. I’m sure AI is being bombarded with millions screaming that it’s rigged. It may be that Adams fans have become complacent thinking that he already has enough votes. Apparently not!

    I’ll be calling in a lot more for the next 3 shows to get my Adam votes in. I picked up 100 ‘Vote Adam’ buttons and a vote Adam T-shirt from http://www.online-tv-shows.net/vote-adam-lambert.php . The t-shirt gets people talking about it and the buttons are great for giving to friends to capture more votes. Spread the word to and get Adam some new fans and votes. Matt’s fans will probably now vote for Kris or Danny, so Adam will need all the votes he can get.
