American Idol 2012 Amy Brumfield’s Troubled Past

Amy Brumfield

Amy Brumfield appeared on Wednesday’s premiere of American Idol 2012 as one of the season’s sob stories. Amy was down on her luck and living in the woods but sure enough, she was soon handed a Golden Ticket and trip to Hollywood. Unfortunately for Amy and her fans, that’s where her Idol story goes downhill.

Reality Rewind reports that Amy Brumfield has been allegedly arrested 6 times in the past 7 years with 3of those occasions involving alcohol. Way too much alcohol.

Brumfield was arrested in 2005 for trespassing. Again in 2007 for living somewhere she shouldn’t (stopped paying rent, but kept staying). Later that year for underage alcohol consumption. Brumfield was picked up in 2010 for extreme public intoxication then again a few days later for similar conduct.

Of course a criminal past doesn’t necessarily preclude a Hopeful from moving forward in the American Idol process, but it doesn’t help. Either way, according to Amy Brumfield’s Facebook activity she won’t be moving on to the live shows.

Starz Uncut tracked down a screenshot of Amy claiming online back in December that she was out of the running after having trouble working with other singers.

We’re still a few weeks away from the Hollywood Week episodes. We’ll have to wait until then to see what really happened. If true, are you sorry to hear she won’t be joining the live shows?
