Constantine Maroulis Explains Bar Brawl

American Idol favorite Constantine Maroulis made headlines earlier this week for getting into a ‘bar fight’ with a fan over the news that Paula Abdul left the show.

“It was just a drunk dude at a concert [who] just like jumped on my back,” the 22-year-old told Extra. “Not that I wouldn’t [defend her], cause I love Paula. I would hit the streets for her but that’s not what happened.”

Idol alum Michael Johns also was shocked at the Paula news: “What can I tell you, I was a bit flabbergasted. Definitely she’s the reason people tune in whether you love her or whether you just want to see if she’s going to be a train wreck, you know. I think something special from the show will be missing.”
