We knew the music industry was cut-throat, but this is craaaaay!
A middle-aged rural Pennsylvania couple had a difference of opinion over a crucial episode of American Idol earlier this month, and things quickly got out of control!!
Fifty-seven-year-old Gregory Stambaugh and his 48-year-old wife Karen Elaine Harrelson were so passionately split about Candice Glover vs. Kree Harrison that they broke out the kitchen cutlery and STABBED each other!
They were, of course, both heavily intoxicated (see the wifey's Coors Light t-shirt above.)
Thankfully, neither one of the AI super-fans was critically injured in the scrum. It's still unclear who pricked who first, but both parties were arrested on assault charges.
Yikes!! Folks need to simmer down!!
Even the show's contestants aren't this invested in the outcome!
We shudder to think what will happen if these two make bail in time for the X Factor premiere!
