American Idol News: Booted Semi-Finalist Chris Golightly Forged Documents To Get On Idol?

I always knew that there was more to Chris Golightly being dumped from American Idol.

Chris Golightly was booted from the show because he had a record deal when he auditioned in Hollywood last year.

At a news conference today, Golightly produced a document showing he had been released from his record deal before he auditioned for Idol as proof that he dismissed unfairly.

TMZ is now reporting that Lawrence D. Franklin, CEO of Dream Project Entertainment told them that after Golightly got disqualified, he approached Franklin and together they forged a document, backdating the release of his contract to June 7, 2009.

Franklin says he just wants to do the ‘right thing.’
