David Hernandez stripper scandal
American Idol 7 scandals continue, today the hottest topic is
contestant David Hernandez and his past as a stripper in
Phoenix. After racy photo scandals about Ramiele Malubay and
Amanda Overmyer (see links below), it was about time for a male contestant on the
American Idol to hit the spot light. According to the latest
reports, a manager of a male strip-club in Phoenix, Arizona,
claims that "Idol" contestant David Hernandez used to take his
clothes off at his joint.
Gordy Bryan, manager of the Dick's
Cabaret strip club in AZ, told the media that David Hernandez
worked as a stripper at his club in the past, appearing fully
nude and performing lap dances for the club's mostly male
patrons. He also said that Hernandez was employed full time from
2004 until 2007. "He had the look and the type that people
like, so he made pretty good money here," the manager of the
strip club said, adding "He never renewed his licensing with
the state, so he hasn't been on my roster since then."
Fox has not commented yet and it's
unknown if David Hernandez stripper job would disqualify him
from American Idol. Last season Antonella Barba was allowed to
continue, after racy photos of her were discovered, but in 2003
Frenchie Davis was cut off, after appearing on adult websites.
David Hernandez is scheduled to sing with the rest of the boys
on the tonight's American Idol. At the online sportsbook
BodogLife David Hernandez is in
the golden middle with odds to win American Idol at 28/1.
