Are Adam Lambert and Kris Allen in Offstage Idol Feud?


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.

  1. Kris Allen is the coolest by a mile. It's not easy living with a messy girl.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  6. 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

  7. 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.

    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.

  9. The National Enquirer is just a piece of junk magazine....I hope that no one is actually going to believe this....

  11. 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!

  13. What complete & utter tripe. Adam's had his emotional 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 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.

  14. I love adam and matt. But wishful thinking adam might be a winner. He is so amazing and have a god given voice.

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

  18. @ Mark,

    Are you talking about yourself? Because if anyone here is shouting for attention and is sexually would be you.

  19. "Maybe Adam just stirs up feelings in Kris that he doesn't understand (wink)

    let's hope so...

  20. Adam needs to push back from the table a little more...I'm just sayin'....momma is clearly not missin' meals....

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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....
