‘American Idol’ winner Laine Hardy investigated by LSU police


“American Idol” winner Laine Hardy announced Thursday that he was under investigation by the Louisiana State University Police Department.

Hardy, 21, revealed the news in a Facebook post Thursday night, saying the LSUPD had issued “a warrant due to allegations made against me.”

The country crooner did not specify what he was charged with but noted that he was “fully cooperative” with cops as nearly two thousand of his fans posted messages of support.

“I understand that my career has propelled me into the public spotlight, and I wholeheartedly embrace that because my whole world belongs to my music and my fans,” he wrote.

“However, due to the sensitive nature of this allegation, I humbly request confidentiality at this time. I have the utmost respect for the law and will assist in their investigation if necessary moving forward.

LSU has confirmed there is an active investigation against the musician, according to WAFB-TV.

Hardy won “Idol” on ABC in 2019 and is known for his hits “Memorize You” and “Flame.”

Hardy did not specify what he was charged with.
