For every star out there that is willing to go above and beyond the call of duty for their family when they hit the jackpot, there are some that turn their backs (and wallets) to those that look like them. The details are not all there just yet, but according to reports surfacing now, the latest winner of American Idol is not trying to part with any of his hard-earned cash any time soon. Especially, if they resemble him.
Phillip Phillips (yeah, it hurts me to write it too, but I digress) was one of the favorites to win American Idol last season. I was not in agreement with that, but what do I know about talent and poise and good taste? Any-tweengirlsvotemorethanAmericansintheelection-way, he did win won a fat contract and never looked back. That included his own family.
Now, the family is being forced to sell their pawn shop so they won’t be singing in the streets any time soon. They’ve allegedly been asking him for money to bail them out, but he is not responding to them or reporters, and guess what?
He’s not talking to us either.
Silence is golden, isn’t it?
