American Idol Season 11 alum, Skylar Laine, comments briefly on camera to WJTV 12 reporter on her relationship with ex-boyfriend, Joseph Dominick, who plead guilty to a hate crime in Jackson, Mississippi on Thursday in connection to the hate crime murder of James Craig Anderson.
When the reporter asks Skylar about her relationship with Dominick she says, “I dated Joseph for awhile. We did date and…but I’m sorry for what has happened with him and his family, but I had nothing to do in the subject…I just pray for everyone involved.” Skylar walked away from the reporter as he attempted to ask her if she knew anything about her ex-boyfriend’s hate crimes.
I can’t believe TMZ hasn’t jumped at this particularly nasty American Idol gossip. Because, this story is really the worst. The absolute worst.

ETA: This is a statement from Skylar from the Clarion Ledger. Skylar dated Dominick for 3 years:
Late in the competition, Skylar broke up with Dominick, and by the time she came home for a few days after being eliminated May 3, she was dating someone else.
“I knew nothing about Joseph committing hate crimes,” Laine told The Clarion-Ledger. “I have never committed a hate crime, and I would encourage anyone with knowledge of a hate crime to come forward.”
