This Time Ian Benardo Only Wants American Idol To Pay Him $5 Million For Forcing Him To ‘Gay It Up’

Ian Benardo, the one-time American Idol contestant, has sued producers of the show twice so far for allegedly forcing him to play up his gayness — something he must’ve been so ashamed to do that he even agreed to appear on the show’s finale doing his shtick. Last time he sued for $300 million and $100 million, both cases that were dismissed. Now he wants only $5 million, filing a new lawsuit in federal court on Friday. Who says Idol isn’t exciting without Cowell?
