Paris Bennett Leaving American Idol?

Rodney Ho of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution just posted the message below at his Access Atlanta blog. He is a legitimate writer-reporter, so this is not just idle Idol gossip.

Update 7:00pm Pacific Time:

Here is another way to find Rodney Ho’s message if the hyperlink above is too slow due to traffic congestion. There is still no confirmation regarding whether this is a hoax or not. The only response under the name Rodney Ho was actually linked to someone else's e-mail address.

Go to Access Atlanta’s American Idol Buzz column (please note Access Atlanta’s affiliation with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution). Look for Rodney Ho’s blog article titled Bucky is finally going home, published on 4/12. Scroll down through the comments at the bottom of this article until you find the message below, which was posted on 4/13 at 5:13pm under the name Rodney Ho.

Hi all, I’m in between classes, so there’s no time to create a new blog, but the Fox execs let me have 8 minutes with Paris today. She told me she’s thinking of dropping out of the competition becuase singing is really not her thing. She said she realized that she’s doing it moreso for her family than herself. Don’t know if she will stick with it or not. Stay tuned….
