David Archuleta's Dad Banned from American Idol

Rumors have spread that American Idol (AI) favorite David Archuleta's dad, Jeff, has been kicked out of the show's backstage. Apparently, David's father has a history of being a domineering stage dad.

Apparently, the AI staff had just about enough when Jeff Archuleta insisted on altering the lyrics of Ben E. King's "Stand by Me" in order to insert a verse of Sean Kingston's pop hit "Beautiful Girls." Although a slick addition to the song, the move reportedly "cost the production additional song-clearance costs."

And the gossips don't stop there. David's dad was also reported to have withheld his son water during a recording session. Despite the harsh criticisms, though, David denied all the rumors and supported his Dad through the ordeal.
