TMZ is reporting that “American Idol” contestant JERMAINE JONES is going to be kicked off the show tonight . . . because he has a criminal past he neglected to tell producers about.
Jones was reportedly arrested TWICE last year . . . and one of those incidents involved some kind of violence. Both times he gave the cops a fake name. And, reportedly, there’s more.
According to TMZ, he also has outstanding warrants . . . although we don’t know what for.
Yesterday on his official “American Idol” Twitter account, Jones said, quote, “Awww I will no longer b on the show.” But the message . . . and his entire Twitter account . . . were later deleted.
TMZ says Jones will appear on tonight’s show before being sent packing. There’s no official word from “Idol”on that . . . or any of the rest of this matter.
