Mario Vasquez caught in gay scandal
I guess I never thought about the fact that everyone may not know that former American Idol contestant Mario Vasquez is gay. Since we both live in New York, I guess I just assumed it was common knowledge. Today I found out that Vasquez is "straight" in the public eye and has been avoiding accusations from bloggers and gossip writers attempting to out him.
It looks like Mario can run, but he can't hide anymore. TMZ.blog is reporting that Vasquez is being sued by a former Idol employee for sexual harassment.
The lawsuit alleges that Vazquez "started to rub his genitals over his pants. Attempting to leave the bathroom, Olmos opened the door of the stall and saw Vazquez standing in front of him with his pants down masturbating."
According to the documents, Vazquez pushed Olmos "further into the stall and continued masturbating with one hand and trying to pull down Olmos' pants with another hand."
Olmos claims that he tried to "cover his body with his hands" but Vazquez touched his "chest and stomach underneath his shirt, and Olmos' "genitals" as Vazquez "attempted to unzip" Olmos' pants.
Vazquez then allegedly asked Olmos "if he wanted oral sex."
TMZ goes on to explain that a few months after incident, Olmos says he was "terminated."
I was once offered a discounted hair cut by some queen who claims to know Mario Vasquez's boyfriend, a hair stylist.
Could this have anything to do with why Mario left the show? Most assume he dropped out after record execs told him that he didn't need the show to get a deal.
Looks like someone is cashing in on a love affair gone wrong if you ask us here in the GaySocialites newsroom!
