Who is clay aiken currently dating
In a People magazine cover story this week, Aiken confesses what the rest of the country has suspected since he debuted on "American Idol" in 2003, when he claimed, "I don't really hide much." Clay Aiken is gay.
He tells the magazine a touching story about coming out to his mom in a car four years ago.
Cowell consistently stole the show with his acerbic barbs and honest criticism.
Last January, I sat down for an interview with Clay Aiken as he was rehearsing for his Broadway debut in "Spamalot." Aiken, at 29, looked like he'd put on some weight, and he was wearing sweats and pair of mismatched socks.
"I've been touring all over the world over the last 8 years, doing the Hitman tour with David Foster and enjoying life.
I'm actually producing a children's show right now called 'Uncle Ruben's House.'" The duo were asked whether they'd release music together in the future.
He took to Twitter to maybe burn bridges and theorize about why Fox is ending the show this season: The judges Aiken is not a fan of are Jennifer Lopez, Harry Connick Jr. In Aiken's era, the judges were Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson.And he says he made the decision to be honest now because of his son, who was conceived via in-vitro fertilization earlier this year (the mother is a record producer /friend)."It was the first decision I made as a father," Aiken said. I wasn't raised that way."Aiken's coming out was met with widespread applause—GLAAD was among the first to congratulate him this morning."Clay and I, he was one of the first people I actually met during Hollywood Week and we've been friends ever since," added Studdard.While Aiken has regularly appeared on "The View" over the years and was a political commentator during the election, Ruben has kept a lower profile. I've been really blessed over the last 13 years to release 7 albums," he explained.
