Paula Abdul Blames Simon Cowell For Drug Drama

Posted Wednesday May 13, 2009 2:41 PM GMT

Paula Abdul is finally taking a stand to all the drug rumors. The "American Idol" judge is pointing her finger to fellow judge, Simon Cowell, for sparking the rumors about her drug habits.

Miss Abdul has been getting slammed for rumors that she is a drug addict since Cowell joked that she had a penchant for painkillers. Abdul is not willing to take any more of it.

“Simon [Cowell] started a very silly joke rumor that’s turned into a very frustrating time for me. People have been blowing this out of proportion. I’ve been nothing but the bravest kind of girl who has been dealing with a tremendous amount of spinal cord injury and people forget that.”

Abdul, who use to be a choreographer and dancer added, “I’ve had at least five surgeries in the past eight seasons of American Idol. But ever since Simon made a joke it has never been left alone. But now I am officially saying it is over. It was just a joke-it’s not real.”
