If you’re a fan of the show American Idol you may recall a Texas native by the name of Alex Lambert who was voted off just before the top 12 elimination round. Lambert was talented enough that a petition eventually surfaced with 19,000 signatures to have him reinstated as the show’s wildcard and now we have come to learn that Lambert is claiming to be a homeless person on the streets of Hollywood.
Lambert’s performances of “Wonderful World” and “Trouble” were good enough for him to gain the fan support of actress Demi Moore, while garnering him a spot on Simon Fuller’s viral reality series If I Can Dream which focuses on struggling musicians, models and actors.
After the show Lambert says he found himself homeless, forcing him to Tweet:
“Ever since “IICD” ended I’ve been kinda homeless!” and “Sleepin on the street and behind buildings. I have a choice to stay and pursue my career or go back to Texas and not do music! I’m usually a strong person but I can’t take it anymore.”

On Wednesday we reported that Zsa Zsa Gabor was having her leg amputated due to a spreading infection and today her reps have confirmed that the surgery has been completed and was a success.
