American Idol runner up Justin Guarini remembers the days when he couldn't walk down the street without being mobbed by fans.
But the man who lost to Kelly Clarkson has fallen on some rough times lately!
So rough that there are days when he's purposely not eating just so his kids can!
"[I spend] days skipping meals in order to make sure I have enough. To make sure my children and my wife have enough. I'm unafraid to say that I am terrified, I am struggling to make each day meet the next without breaking down and curling up."
Wow that's so sad!
But Justin, who has a wife and two sons, is able to find solace in his precious family.
"I have a wife whom I love and who loves me (me!) and who lifts me up. Children who give me cherubic-lipped kisses before I leave for work and who are the most delicious morsels of joy and peace and prosperity."
Still it's hard to believe that this man with such a promising future has to skip meals for his kids.
HOWEVER, things seem to be on the upswing for Justin as he's set to appear on Broadway in Romeo & Juliet with Orlando Bloom!
That should help, right???
