Justin Guarini, 2002 American Idol runner-up, confirmed he had a fling with Kelly Clarkson during the filming of their movie, From Justin to Kelly.
The 35-year-old singer revealed his secret romance during his cabaret show, Lovesick, in New Hope, Pa., according to E! News. During the show, the singer dedicated a performance of Brenda Russell’s “Get Here” to the blonde beauty.
Unfortunately, the relationship ended quickly when Guarini’s music career didn’t do as well as the “Since U Been Gone” singer.
According to Daily Mail, the father of two denied the romance rumors back in 2012.
“Yeah, there was a rumor. Definitely. We’ve just always been such good friends. Um, man, it was weird; she was like my sister on the show, and then you know, we made a movie together…I’d say, we had a good time,” Guarini said.
The Daily Mail reports that Clarkson wasn’t the only woman Guarini was dating. Pre-Clarkson, he also dated fourth-place finisher Tamyra Gray.
Guarini is now married to wife of four years, Reina Capodici. Together, they have two kids, William and Asher. Clarkson is expecting her first child, a baby girl, with new hubby Brandon Blackstock.
