Was American Idol’s Elise Testone the Other Woman in Divorce Drama?
We always thought she was a sweetheart, but American Idol Season 11 contestant Elise Testone has been accused of being a homewrecker in the messy divorce of a guitarist from the reality competition show.
TMZ reports that Erin Cooney, the wife of musician Errol Cooney (who played in Idol’s live band and toured with the Top 10 over the summer), filed for divorce from her husband and is claiming he had an affair with Elise. Erin reportedly found email correspondence between Errol and Elise that pointed to an affair. Elise even sent Erin a separate message that said, “Errol was the only person who I felt really loved me in my entire life” and apologized for hurting Erin’s feelings.
Erin said she confronted her husband with the evidence and that Errol confessed to everything, but Elise denies she had an inappropriate relationship with the guitarist.
“We developed a friendship on Tour and he developed feelings for me,” Elise told TMZ. She also said that the couple’s divorce had nothing to do with her and would have happened with or without an affair.
