Alex Lambert from last season’s American Idol sent out some Tweets earlier claiming to be homeless. He says he has been on the street since wrapping the Web-based series If I Can Dream in October.
“Alright so I didn’t want to bring my person (sic) life to my fans but I’m about to freak out if I don’t tell yall the truth!” he wrote in the wee hours of Tuesday morning before dropping the bombshell: “Ever since IICD ended I’ve been kinda homless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings.”
After much a ton of response from the Tweet, Alex sent out another message clarifying his situation. ”I have money! And soon I will have a place to stay! I just wanted to let yall know! I’m not some rich spoiled kid! That I’ve had to hustle,” and then throwing out that “I don’t mind sleepin on the street as long as I get my chance!”
Anyways this Tweet of poverty and homelessness was a pretty good move as we had otherwise forgotten all about him. Well played sir!
