Sexual harrassment suit at Idol? Say it isn’t so.

I haven’t been a really big fan of American Idol, until maybe recently. This news is just crazy.

Via ABC News:

In the lawsuit, Olmos says the incident started when Vazquez “stared lasciviously, smiled lasciviously … and on one occasion followed him into a bathroom.”

The lawsuit alleges Vazquez “started to rub his genitals over his pants.” It also says Olmos opened the stall door and saw Vazquez standing in front of him with his pants down, masturbating.

The document says Vazquez pushed Olmos “further into the stall and continued masturbating with one hand while trying to pull down Olmos’ pants with another hand.”

Olmos says Vazquez touched his chest and stomach underneath his shirt, and touched his genitals as Vazquez “attempted to unzip” Olmos’ pants. Vazquez then allegedly asked Olmos whether he wanted oral sex.

In the lawsuit, Olmos says that as he “managed to get out of the stall, and attempted to leave the bathroom,” Vazquez grabbed his arm to stop him and continued to call Olmos to come back as Vazquez stayed in the bathroom with his pants down.

I’ve never seen Idol up until this year, but from the pictures I’ve seen floating around on the internet, this Vazquez guy doesn’t look as if he is too overpowering, or even strong. So, it looks to me as if Guy A. smiles at Guy B, with an ulterior motive and follows Guy B. into the bathroom. Guy B. opens the stall door where Guy A. is masturbating and asks if Guy B. wants oral sex. Thus, Guy A. gets sued because he was on TV and maybe he has some cash in a piggy bank somewhere? (Not that I’m condoning sexual harassment by any means, but if some guy gives you that all-knowing smile and follows you into a bathroom, would you:

  • A. Beat the crap out of him?
  • B. Beat the crap out of him?
  • or C. Don’t leave asap and file a lawsuit later?
  • Something reeks about this story and we’ve yet to see what that is, but back to the REAL AI NEWS: Lakisha Jones has this contest in the bag. That’s my formal prediction, but we will wait and see.
