Jilted American Idol Loser Sues For $300 Million!


Oh for goodness sake! GET OVER IT, bb.

Back in May, Dane Cook came under fire when he reportedly threatened American Idol reject Ian Bernardo after the contestant stole the microphone from him at the live finale.

Bernado claims that Cook and his manager made some offensive comments about his sexual preference and threatened to shove the microphone up his ass, and now he's suing the reality show for $300 million!

According to legal documents, Bernado alleges that the producers were behind his flamboyant behavior, and instructed him to be outrageous and to "gay it up" during the live event! However, he now asserts that they hung him out to dry and did not support him after the incident with Cook.


Sounds to us like someone had no problem having his sexuality exploited when it was giving him screen time, but now that things didn't turn out the way he wanted he's sour grapes!

So effing lame.

Boo On You, Dane Cook!


While at the American Idol finale, Dane Cook was serenading Simon Cowell with one of his original songs until season seven Idol reject Ian Bernardo grabbed the mic from him.

Berendo interrupted Cook by saying:

"Who cares? It's all about Ian Benardo tonight!

I'm going to replace you, Simon Cowell! No one has a thing to say about you, just me…and I want to say I'm replacing you, Simon Cowell, because I'm more entertaining than you!"

No one is going to admit that was in bad taste but it was what Dane did after that caused a commotion.

"Dane yelled at me 'I can’t believe you let this f***ing f*ggot get on stage with me," said Benardo. "His representative followed me off stage and continued to berate me, yelling 'You f***ed my client, you f***ing faggot, you will burn in hell.'"


He insists that Dane continued to yell at him as security escorted him from the building.

Although Cook's rep, Barry Katz, claims that this incident “never happened.”

Benardo is also upset at Ellen DeGeneres because she was allegedly a witness to the gay slurs.

"I want Ellen to apologize to me for not doing anything or saying anything to Dane while he was screaming at me," he continued. "I have always looked up to Ellen and I am offended that she sat by and did nothing."
