The “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert was arrested in Finland after getting into a fight with his reality star boyfriend Sauli Koskinen. According to Hollywood Report, the two lovers were in a gay bar in Helsinki when they got into a dispute. They soon went from words to fists and the Helsinki police arrested them in front of the bar. They were released from jail on Thursday afternoon.
The head of the police investigation, Petri Juvonen told reporters that the event took place around 4 a.m. Thursday in front of the famous gay bar “Don’t Tell Mama” in Helsinki. The two were investigated by the police because there were four cases of assault offenses.
Based on the declarations of the people in the bar, the dispute between Lambert and Koskinen, one of the winners of the Finnish version of “Big Brother”, began in one of the bar’s back rooms. The discussion became so noisy that the couple was thrown outside where they continued fighting in the street. Sofia Ruusila, an ex-Miss Helsinki who was also present at DTM tried to separate the two lovers, but Lambert hit her by mistake.
On December 19, the “American Idol” star arrived in Finland to celebrate Christmas with Koskinen. This unexpected visit led Internet users into mistakenly thinking that Lambert will be the guest of the “X Factor” finale on Thursday. The rumors were immediately denied by a spokesperson of the show.
No declaration was made in relation to the day when Lambert will return to U.S. The police stated later that the investigation was over and the two lovers were released from jail. Koskinen mentioned the episode on his blog telling readers that publicity and love are not easy, but love is forever. On the other hand, Lambert explained the incident through a brief message posted on his Twitter page: “Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned.Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it. :)”
Lambert’s latest single “Better Than I Know Myself” was released on Tuesday. The singer tweeted as soon as he arrived in Finland letting fans know that the song was on the second place on iTunes in the Middle East. He also wrote that “Helsinki is a beautiful city full of beautiful people”.
