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:

This dude has some SERIOUS legal issues!

As reported earlier, American Idol contestant Jermaine Jones got canned when his criminal past came to light yesterday.

Now, deets on his crimes are out and they are NASTAY!! Turns out Jermaine is a liar, a bully, and VERY violent!

Jones was arrested March 5th 2011, after he got into a fight at a Howard Johnson Hotel in Jersey. He gave the cops a fake name, Joel Jones. That's reeaally clever…

He was charged with public nuisance and obstruction justice as well as having outstanding warrants. And we're just getting started!

Idol Shakeup! Another Contestant Gets The Boot Over Criminal Charges

Say goodbye to the "gentle giant" Jermaine Jones.

The American Idol contestant was dismissed from the show yesterday, after just making it to the live tapings, when producers were informed that Jones was arrested TWICE last year. Somehow, this bit of vital information wasn't on their radar until late yesterday afternoon!

Point to you, research team!

One of Jones' arrest involved an act of violence and he currently has an outstanding warrant as well. The former contestant announced on his official Idol Twitter feed that he was leaving before the show deleted the page in its entireity, saying:

"Awww I will no longer b on the show."

There are such things as background checks, folks. Maybe we should start using them! This marks fourth time in Idol history that a contestant has gotten the boot this late in the competition. Frenchie Davis, of Season 2, however resurfaced on The Voice as well.

Will Idol try to bring back another contestant? Or is Idol a man down from now on?
