You'll Never Guess Where This Former 'American Idol' Contestant Works
Corey Clark, who was a contestant on the talent show in 2003, now has an unlikely job.
One of the most controversial performers ever to appear on American Idol now has an unlikely job: he’s an Uber driver.
Corey Clark was kicked off season two of the show for failing to disclose a past arrest. The case was later dismissed.
He later caused another sensation by claiming he'd had an affair with then-Idol judge Paula Abdul. She dismissed his claims as "false."
But the days of celebrity are long gone. These days, the father of three works as a driver. "I work for myself. I am my own boss, I love that," he told INSIDE EDITION.
The day INSIDE EDITION went out with Corey, Sarah McMinimy was one of his passengers. She gave him a five-star rating.
“He was really nice, really lovely, really approachable,” she said.
So is driving for Uber a comedown for a guy who once starred on one of the hottest shows on television?
He said: "I am making a few scrafices for my kids, they mean the world to me. If I am not living up to everyone's expectations, so what?"
Music is still a passion for him and he is currently in the studio, working on a new album. For more information on his music check out his Twitter page.
