A lawsuit has been filed against Adam Lambert, claiming that he was NOT eligible to compete on season eight of American Idol.
According to the suit, he was "under a Music Services Agreement and a Co-publishing Agreement from a company he worked with prior to hitting it big on Idol," and he "violated the company's rights in his mega-selling post-Idol career." Ouchie!
The drama all started up when Adam's alleged former label, Colwell Platinum Entertainment, began marketing a new Lambert album called Beg For Mercy without his knowledge.
As a result, Adam's reps forced Amazon.com to remove the album from sale, which caused Colwell Platinum to fight back against the Idol alum.
Hopefully you've got some fantastic lawyers, Adam! These allegations against you are pret-ty serious!
What do U think? Was Adam Lambert NOT eligible for American Idol when he competed???
