Idol’s Cook Going Through Heartbreak

davidcook.jpgAmerican Idol has more news surrounding its contestants this year than ever before. There have already been talks of strippers and naked photos but this latest news is much sadder than any of those. The news concerns David Cook and his own health issues as well as those of his brother. David was hospitalized a little while ago after suffering from high blood pressure and heart palpitations. He’s doing much better now but now it has also come out that his brother is suffering from cancer. From People,

“His older brother Adam Cook is battling cancer, sources confirm. David hasn’t spoken about it, the sources add, out of respect for his brother – and because he didn’t want to seek sympathy votes. But he has performed with an electric guitar emblazoned with his brother’s initials “A.C.”

Cook has had me enamoured with him ever since he sang Lionel Richie’s song Hello. He has just gotten better with every passing week and it’s extremely sad that he needs to go through this while participating in what will probably be the biggest competition of his life.

Not only that, but People managed to take an awfully sad story and turn it into a story about Jordin Sparks. Apparantly, the girl that never should have won suffered her own tragedies while on the show. I will say no more about it because I’m quite horrified that People would go into it almost completely forgetting about David Cook. I love People as I know their facts are actual facts and they bring the people what they want. But this is poor judgement in my eyes.
