Bowersox and her beau call it quits

Crystal Bowersox
Well, she didn't win American Idol, and now it looks like Crystal Bowersox's personal life has hit a little emotional disturbance. On the first day of this week's finale, she and boyfriend Tony Kusian, 26, split up.

“[My boyfriend] Tony, he went home. He wasn’t cool with the lifestyle,” she told Ryan Seacrest‘s 102.7 KIIS-FM radio show on Thursday morning.

The decision to break up was completely mutual, said the Elliston, Ohio, native and single mom. “We’re both logical, grown adults,” she said. “He’s a small town guy and it’s fine. But I’m a small town girl but I want this. I want this more than anything — this career, this lifestyle. I didn’t think he was up for it. He didn’t think he was up for it.”

And we can only guess that he definitely was not up for watching the American Idol tour live at every stop this summer.
