American Idol Staff Has Banned Archuleta's Dad From Future Rehearsals...
We have all heard the rumors about David Archuleta's dad, Jeff. Apparently he is one of "those" backstage parents, that give all parents involved in their children's lives a bit too much - a really bad name!
On the heels of David Archuleta's big hometown celebration "David's Day" - The Associate Pressed has just released the story about David Archuleta's father being banned backstage on American Idol and from all future American Idol T.V. Show rehearsals! That's rough!
"Jeff Archuleta was told this week by producers that he can no longer join his 17-year-old son David as he prepares for the show, the person familiar with the matter told The Associated Press. The person wasn't authorized to comment publicly and spoke on the condition of anonymity."
Further reports on the story, indicate that Jeff Archuleta's continual meddling backstage was becoming much too intense. American Idol staff, from what is understood, repeatedly tried to work with David Archuleta's father, prior to this decision being made - to actually ban David's dad.
Deseret News also went on to say:
"Jeff Archuleta's intense backstage involvement had become a source of concern for the series, the person connected with "American Idol" said — but it was a lyric change on Tuesday's show that pushed producers to act."
Apparently David's dad insisted on a lyric change to the song "Stand By Me", where he added in the words referencing "beautiful girls". This change costs American Idol big and this is what brought about a final showdown with David Archuleta's dad and American Idol executives!
Fox has declined any comments on this incident. As well, neither David Archuleta nor any of his family members thus far - are making any statements.
Fans of David Archuleta have got to really feel for him right now....
I really like David Archuleta. He is a very nice Mormon boy.
Too bad, that he must deal with this kind of crud at such a young age and during such a great time in his career.
Lets all hope that David Archuleta's dad, Jeff Archuleta will take the correction given, make it right - and try to enjoy what is happening to his "son" and not him!
Families can take a hit and learn - then move on. Lets all hope that for the future career of not only David Archuleta, but for a happy future with the Archuleta family altogether... they can show America - that they can work it out as a family, and move together, toward the really awesome career of their son David Archuleta - American Idol hopeful!
Update: 5/21 David Archuleta was interviewed today and asked point blank about the rumors and what had happened on American Idol with his dad, Jeff Archuleta...
David seemed really perplexed by all the sensationalism that surrounded the story and noted that a lot of rumors were out there. He said that his dad is a great guy! So, perhaps we are all wrong about Jeff Archuleta. David said that the first thing his dad said to him after the finale, was that he was really proud of David. (big David grin)
