Lauren Alaina Lashes Out on Twitter, Then Apologizes
Idol runner-up taunts her ex and his new love interest, then adds "I want to personally apologize. . . ."
Country singer Lauren Alaina has had a two-day Twitter roller-coaster ride, of which she tweeted, "I'm a teenage girl we have drama unfortunately."
That drama appears to involve a cheating ex-boyfriend and his current love interest—and Lauren, 17, lashed out at both.
Lauren, runner-up on last year's American Idol, also fired several shots at his new girl, including this one: "Ps: you won't ever have to worry about him cheating on you with me I wouldn't do that to someone. That must [be] the kinda girl you are.
All of this led to several nasty exchanges between Lauren and her followers, and eventually, she broke down and said, among other things, that she was being a bad example for her teenage fans.
"I want to personally apologize for the way I handled the immature situation last night. I don't usually let people get to me, but now I know That getting your heart broken makes you react in strange ways," she wrote.
"I want to apologize to all of the parents on my twitter whose children I'm Setting an example for. It won't happen again. I am truly sorry if I disappointed anyone. I'm embarrassed to have let it get so out of hand.
"It wasn't worth it and it shouldn't have ever happened. I also want to apologize to The people I was arguing with. U said some pretty awful Stuff about me, but I only made it worse by responding. I can promise you that next time I'll ignore you.
"As an ending note, I hope everyone Knows [that] was out of character for me and I won't do it again. Thank u for all of the support [you've] shown me over the last year. Love y'all."
