It now seems that Jones fabricated a sob story to the show’s producers in order to win over the American people.
It was reported that after seeing Jermaine perform on the show last week, his father suddenly got in contact after he had not heard from him in years. The singer then claimed that his father abandoned him and his mom 10 years ago.
Well, maybe he didn’t.
Jermaine told sources that his father called and said,
“Hi, I’m in Los Angeles. Why are you telling everyone you haven’t got a dad?”
Jermaine Jones (25) was said to be “extremely upset” to get the call, blaming is father for exploiting his exposure on the prime time talent show for the sudden reconciliation. He made it seem like Dad wanted in on the American Idol action.
Jermaine told a friend, “He’s a lovely man but a lousy father” and he wanted nothing to do with him.
That doesn’t quite square with Kevin Jones’ side of the story.
He says the sob story is absurd and that he has had an ongoing relationship with Jermaine through the years and even had dinner with him on both Wednesday and Thursday night of last week.
Furthermore, there apparently wasn’t even a phone call…because Kevin was actually in the American Idol audience last week supporting his son.
The show’s producers are said to be “shocked that Jermaine apparently made up the whole story to get some traction on the show.
If that’s true, it’s shocking, isn’t it? Who do you believe?
