Idol’ judge promises more scandals next season

September 30, 2005


— "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul dodged questions about a review that Fox-TV said found no evidence that she had an affair with a former contestant, and Simon Cowell said viewers can expect more scandals among competitors.

"I'm sitting right here happy doing what I'm doing," Abdul said Wednesday when asked if she felt vindicated by a report last month by two law firms that found nothing to corroborate former contestant Corey Clark's claim of an affair with the former pop star.

Abdul, Cowell, fellow judge Randy Jackson and host Ryan Seacrest were in San Francisco for auditions for the upcoming season, which starts in January.

The allegations that Abdul had an affair with Clark, who competed unsuccessfully in 2003, received nearly as much publicity as the Fox show last year and led to an ABC special called "Fallen Idol."
