Sanjaya Malakar Has a Girlfriend?

Sanjaya Malakar Has a Girlfriend?

American Idol alum Sanjaya Malakar was seen getting cozy and walking arm-in-arm with a ‘female friend’ in Los Angeles on Sunday.

Third wheel sister (and Idol reject) Shyamali accompanied the pair on their lunch date. The brother-sister pair now share a house together in Los Angeles.

Sanjaya recently opened up to People about his music career.

“I’m not in the recording stages yet,” he said. “I’m writing music and starting to interview producers. If I had to define it, it would be alternative pop rock, like Paolo Nutini or James Morrison.”

Sanjaya also mentioned that he’s shopping to do a variety show similar to Donny & Marie in the 1970s.

“[Shyamali and I are] Donny and Marie for the next generation!” Ummm…

  • Musicisourhigh

    Good for him. Everyone deserves someone

  • luckyL

    Um, they’re most likely NOT together. Jared is merely making it interesting by implying something. I’d rather not see another post about him.

  • Kelly

    You guys are a bunch of dumbasses and homophobes. Have you seen him make out with a guy before or annouce that he is gay no you didn’t.


  • kellygrrrl

    does Sanjaya keep Vaseline on his teef? Those chompers look painful

  • Terri

    Such an embarrassment.

  • [~F a m o u s~]

    they aren’t fooling anyone.

  • Sophie [loves Sanjaya]

  • Sophie [loves Sanjaya]

    Ahh… wtf it cut off my comment. I said a lot hah but mostly: He’s not dating her because he’s dating me! DUH! Be very jealous. I love Sanjaya, always have, always will! He is the nicest person ever and an amazing singer, not to mention a total hottie. HE’S MINE! =]

  • Regina

    #21, you crack me up.

  • Louise

    Gay or not I doubt that is his girlfriend. She doesn’t have the slightest interest in Sanjaya in any of these pictures.

  • Jenny

    Sanjaya show will get better ratings then AI XD Thanks for keeping us updated as you can tell some people here can stop talking about him

  • [~F a m o u s~]

    “I’m not in the recording stages yet,” = I have no fcuking deal, please, someone give me a deal.

    “I’m writing music and starting to interview producers” = like um, i cant afford a real producer right now but umm, like, ummm.. i’ll glady pay you Tuesday for a beat today.

    lmao like the world needs another donny and marie.

  • me

    Sanjaya looks great here. I’m not sure if this is his girlfriend or if she is just a friend or cousin. I’m sure if he wants us to know we will find out in time. I can’t wait to find out what’s going on with his career!

  • Sophie [loves Sanjaya]

    #24 ISN’T MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE! I swear guys omg I would never say that. Sanjaya is gorgeous

  • lj

    his sis is cute!!

  • Zayzay

    ew! get this off jj!
    i hate sanjaya. he lost american idol–suck it up and move on yah, freak!

  • Sarah

    That Shyamali is beautiful. Too bad he got the lime light when she was prettier and a better singer

  • Didi

    so Sanjaya is a lesbian. congratulations on being a rug muncher. you always had a rug munching quality about you whenever you sang on that sh*t show. its the curly locks and faint upper-lip hair and uni-brow that gave you away

  • Chase

    That is not his girlfriend. I’m not saying who it is. She is obviously uncomfortable being stalked, and he is acting protective towards her.

    He has deals already signed and deals pending. Clearly the paps, gossip sites like this one and TMZ are interested enough in him to take pictures and blog about him merely walking down the street.

  • m

    umm… that’s how my girlfriends and queer guy friends hold my arm too. something tells me that they’re not dating…

  • staro

    that’s his fag hag

  • allie

    gross….. sanjaya lacks talent.

  • ver

    His sister is pretty.

  • Annie


    quote “[Shyamali and I are] Donny and Marie for the next generation!” Ummm… quote

    haha. Sanjaya looks the same. can’t wait to see him in “Meet The Spartans.”

  • Meridethx3

    i totally remember his sister’s audition
    and i though she was better than he was..

  • http://justjared Lips,tits and OMG, the ASS.

    Is that a real girl or its a girl with a p e n i s?

  • um

    I read where he got signed by CAA so he’s got a lot of things going on. Shyamali is very pretty.

  • okay?

    Isn’t that his cousin? I saw him on an interview last week. His hair is almost hippie length, past his shoulders.

  • j

    His sister looks pretty,the girlfriend looks scary

  • Heidi


  • nicole m

    He does not have any talent in singing. I still shudder when I think of his performances.

  • Heidi

    #36 is fooling himself. Sanjaya has no deal and never will have one.

  • sup
