Rumor has it that Lauren Alaina and Scotty McCreery had a little more in common than just being the top two finalists on American Idol!
After snatching up the American Idol victory, Scotty played down reports of any romantic involvement with his former competitor. According to reports, Lauren had deferred to Scotty when asked about their relationship status. After scooping the Idol crown, he talked about the reports.
Scott was asked, “Lauren said to ask you about whether or not you are dating”, to which he replied, “She’s a character, isn’t she? She really is. No, we’re just really close friends. I met her day one of Hollywood week and we’ve grown really tight over the weeks because we’ve gone to school together, but I don’t know about the dating part.”
He went on to say that she was “just being funny” when talking about the relationship speculation.
He also touched on plans for his debut album, saying, “I want to get some good songs. It’s all about the songs after this. American Idol is a platform and helping us out and start our jobs.”
Prior to releasing his debut album, Scotty will appear with the top eleven competitors on the Idols Live Tour.
