Paula Abdul will remain as American Idol judge as the investigation found no proof that she had an affair with Corey Clark
The series of investigations done by lawyers found no proof that Paula Abdul has ever had an affair with ex American Idol contestant Corey Clark. In other words, lawyers could not substantiate Clark's allegation. Thus, Abdul will remain as the hit Fox TV series judge.
"Paula Abdul, therefore, can continue as a judge on 'American Idol,'" the network and series producers said in a statement. As for her side, Abdul commented "I'm grateful this ordeal is over, and I'm so looking forward to getting back to the job I love. Once again, I thank my fans from throughout the world for their undying love and support."
Despite all, there will be an addition of "an enhanced non-fraternization policy" in order to prevent future incidents that could appear to call into question the relationship between judges, contestants or any others connected to American Idol.
