Justin Guarini was surely set for stardom when he came in second to Kelly Clarkson in the first season of American Idol in 2002. But today, Justin has hit hard times.
"I am terrified. I am struggling to make each day meet the next," he reveals on his blog. "I have spent days skipping meals to make sure my children, and my wife have enough."
Thirty-four-year-old Justin and his wife Reina have two children. But after his startling comments made headlines, Justin backtracked, tweeting: "I'm nowhere near poverty."
