Sorry Dex, but we're not buying it!
Back in September, we were introduced to 49-year-old X Factor contestant Dexter Haygood (above), who made it VERY clear that he NEEDED to win the competition…especially since he's homeless!
Now, Dexter has been eliminated…but he claims it's because he wanted to go.
Here's what he had to say about it:
"I wanted to leave the show because I was unhappy that I was unable to be a rock artist. I grew up on rock."
"I was treated more like a character than an artist. This is TV, they want a good story, you know? But they took that and I didn't get a chance to be an artist. I was doing things I would never do."
"[Producers] seemed to have their way of doing things. I'm not sure why they wouldn't let me be me."
And here's Dexter on his claims that producers allowed him to exit the show, as long as he agreed to return for the finale:
"They (producers) took the opportunity to cut me, to let me just fly and do things the way I want to do them."
We can understand why he'd want to save face after getting cut, but we don't believe this. It's a nice thought, but we really don't think this is how it went down.
What do U think REALLY happened with Dexter Haygood?
