The truth shall would have set you free, Jermaine!

As reported earlier, Jermaine Jones was shown the door by American Idol execs for lying about his criminal past.

Now it looks like Jermaine could've stayed…if he wasn't a HUGE liar!

Producers Nigel Lythgoe and Ken Warwick stated that they had no choice but to let Jones go. The biggest red flag was Jones' multiple fake names when he was charged with his crimes.

Lythgoe and Warwick explain the situation:

There might be other false names and other charges out there that we just dont know about.

We help them where we can in clearing them up.

Producers broke the news to Jones (which they caught on tape, aka ratings gold!) and they explain he was very apologetic.

But Jermaine hid the truth, and now he's a goner. That's just the way it is … things will never be the same for J-J-Jones

    Why oh why is this ghetto pig relevant? He was kicked off a failing karaoke show.

    Why don't you add him to your lineup at that thing in Austin this weekend that you've been posting about 3-4 times a day (the one that gets no comments). He'd fit right in, probably even headline.

    Really, so it's ok if he's a criminal, but it's not ok to be a criminal AND a liar. Interesting, but isn't that like 1/2 of Hollywood anyway?

    Well, then maybe next time say that to the prospective contestants so that they know that if they have talent, they actually have a chance. Everyone knows that past people have been given the boot for having a criminal record, so what he did is inevitable. He probably thought he'd be told to go home if he revealed it. Why don't they 'help' him now?
