Lord knows plenty of girls across America wanted a shot at Chris Richardson, but it’s possible he’s not exactly the best boyfriend in the world. Star Magazine reports that the recently ousted Idol may be cheating on his girlfriend back in Virginia with Lauren Conrad, and that he started dating the Virginia girlfriend while she was still married! According to the mag:
Rumor has it that booted AI contestant Chris Richardson may soon be dating The Hills hottie Lauren Conrad behind the back of his hometown girlfriend, Gayle Barnett. And thatâ€™s a situation Chris is already used to, says a source- who claims Chris and Gayle began romancing while her then husband was fighting in Iraq! â€œGayle was still married when she first met Chris in the early summer of 2003, when he was hired as a fry cook at the Hooters in his hometown of Chesapeake, Va.,â€ the source tells Star. â€œThey started dating, and they didnâ€™t try to keep it a secret. Gayle was still wearing her wedding ring, and everyone knew she was married, including Chris. Apparently neither of them cared.â€ Local Virginia newspapers recently featured a number of interviews with Gayle, 26, who is always describes as Chrisâ€™s â€œgirlfriend of four years.â€ But according to Virginia Beach Circuit Court documents, in her June 2005 divorce filing against her husband, she lists their separation date as September 2004- more than a year after the source says she and Chris began dating!
What is it with AmIdol and Hooters? That’s where Sanjaya’s sister worked, too.
Whatever, I’m a Blake girl anyway.
