Aiken's Accuser Distortions?
(antiMusic) A quick follow-up to yesterday's story about Clay Aiken's gay accuser John Paulus; In his blog post, Paulus claimed that the day after he told his story of a one-night-stand with the Idol runner-up to the National Enquirer, he had second thoughts and even went as far as having an attorney send a cease-and-desist letter to the paper's parent company. However, the Enquirer remembers it quite differently. MSNBC's The Scoop columnist Jeannette Walls spoke with National Enquirer editor David Perel about Paulus' claims about trying to kill the story and how the story leaked out from there. Here is part of that report: "Our reporter couldn't get him off the phone," Perel told The Scoop. Perel says he doesn't remember Paulus having a legal letter sent, but says even if there was one, Paulus is "completely distorting" the story. "It's not a situation where he told the story one time," Perel said. "He engaged in multiple conversations with our reporter. He couldn't stop talking, and then he talked to reporters after it was out." [see the full story link for yesterday's story] - Click here for the Full Story
