Crystal Bowersox Has Broken Up With Her Boyfriend

This year’s American Idol runner up Crystal Bowersox (Lee DeWyze ended up winning it), has broken up with her boyfriend Big Tony.

According to the New York Post, the singer broke up with him last Tuesday morning right before her finale performance.

The article said:

“Big Tony went home,” Bowersox told Ryan Seacrest during his morning radio show. “it was a mutual thing. We’re both logical adults.”

“He’s a small-town guy – that’s fine. I’m a small-town girl, but I want this more than anything.

“I want this career, this lifestyle,” she said. “and I didn’t think he was up for it.

“And he didn’t think he was up for it.”

She went on to say that she was “a little sad he did it on performance day,” but that she used the emotion during her performance of Patty Griffin’s “Up To The Mountain.”

Still Bowersox said that she’s “the happiest girl in the world right now.”

Also according to MSJ Big Blog Crystal is yet to sign a record contract, but there are company’s interested.

It’s very sad he couldn’t wait until after AI was over and decided to rain on her parade but it sounds like it was all for the best if he couldn’t share in her success and be happy for her. She mentioned her boyfriend so many times on the show and I think even implied she wanted him to propose so she made him feel like he was part of her dream as well.
