David Archuleta Dad Kicked off American Idol

David Archuleta

Usually we read about contestants getting kicked off American Idol, but this time its a parent. Jeff Archuleta, the father of David Archuleta, has been denied his backstage pass on American Idol. The reason for him being kicked out of the set is basically that he's a royal pain in the ass.

Predictably, Jeff Archuleta denies he did anything he's rumored to have done.
"I'm definitely involved with my son, and I encourage him, but I think that's a lot different from forcing and threatening and all that stuff. There was absolutely no truth in any of the stories about me yelling at David, making him cry or withholding water from him. That was crazy!" Jeff Archuleta was quoted later, denying his American Idol backstage privileges have been take away. Fox has not commented on the incident yet. Old stories about David Archuleta and his dad have begun popping up, most notably when Jeff Archuleta was called "the monster dad from hell" by Naomi Judd, who was a judge on "Star Search", where the then 12-year-old David took part.

Parents really need to get their own lives so their kids can live their own lives. Its really as simple as that.
