Alex Lambert: “I’ve been kinda homeless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings”

UPDATE:  Alex tweets an update

O my goodness yall! I have been crashin behind buidings and sleepin outside but I dont want nobody to feel sorry for me! I’m a grown ass man

I’ve had so much help out here in LA! I just want oto do things on my own! I have places to stay I just don’t want to be a burden on anyone!

I have money! And soon I will have a place to stay! I just wanted to let yall know! I’m not some rich spoiled kid! That I’ve had to hustle and grind and I don’t mind sleepin on the street as long as I get my chance! Because I will not take it for granted! I hope yall understand

Sorry for the miscommunication;) I’m just fine! MAHALO!

Things aren’t going so well for Alex Lambert.  The Season 9 Top 16 Idol and If I Can Dream alumni has posted a series of really troubling tweets. I hope whatever he has going on his life, he gets worked out soon.

It sounds like after If I Can Dream folded a few months ago, 19 totally cut him loose. He’s basically homeless right now:

Alright so I didn’t want to bring my person life to my fans but I’m about to freak out if I don’t tell yall the truth!

Ever since IICD ended I’ve been kinda homless! Sleepin on the street and behind buildings.I have a choice to stay and persue my career or go back to texas and not do music! I’m usually a strong person but I can’t take it anymore.

I’ve been goin to coffee shops and other stores so I can tweet to my snaf! Because to be honest! You guys are all I really have!

I’m a poor boy yall! Never had nothin in my life. please be greatful for everything you have. Because there’s people out there with nothing!

I just want my fans to know that I’m not an American Idol type person! There are many things I can’t share with yall because you’d probably think I was a hooligan haha

There’s no way i’ll ever stop making music as long as i live.. I didn’t mean it like that! I just want yall to know the truth!

Man o man.  Alex, you’re going to have to find a day job, just like every other struggling artist in LA.  A stint on Idol isn’t a guarantee of ANYTHING. Alex is definitely an object lesson in how fleeting fame can be.
