Adam Lambert and Boyfriend Sauli Koskinen Split
Glam rocker and American Idol Season 8 runner up Adam Lambert announced in an interview with SFGN that he and his boyfriend Sauli Koskinen have split up.
“It’s been kind of on its way out in the last couple of months,” Lambert told SFGN.
Koskinen is a Finnish entertainment reporter, television host and radio personality. He rose to fame after winning his country’s version of Big Brother in 2007.
Lambert emphasized though the two are close and will continue to remain friends.
“Sauli and I remain really good friends, and I know it’s a cliché thing to say. But it’s totally true,” he said. “I just gave him a coffee and bagel earlier today. He’s a great person and we’ve had an amazing couple of years together. Things have just run their course.”
Lambert and Koskinen’s relationship though hasn’t always been smooth sailing. In 2011 the couple was arrested in Helsinki after a dispute led to a physical altercation.
However that appeared to be only a minor blip in their relationship with both of them brushing it off.
“Fame is not easy. Celebrities are only human. Love is not easy either, but it is forever!” Koskinen wrote in a blog post. While Lambert laughed it off on Twitter tweeting: “Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it.”
Lambert attributed the break up to their hectic schedules.
“I’ve been getting really busy and traveling a lot and and he’s been getting really busy because he has a show he’s filming for Finnish television,” he said. “So we just decided to part ways.”
SFGN was interviewing Lambert in advance of his upcoming performance at Miami Beach PrideFest taking place April 14 on Miami Beach.
