Everything I read today is just making me angry. Apparently, David Cook is willing to forego happiness in his own personal life, and drop people at the drop of a hat, all because you don’t like it. Yep. Let me preface this by saying that I love David Cook. I have been a big fan since the first time he performed for the judges on American Idol. But when it comes to women, the guy sucks. When he first started getting really, really big (which was about a month before his season on Idol was over), he started to see that he had options other than his girlfriend, Kimberly Caldwell. I guess he figured he was a big star now and didn’t want to be tied down. Blah blah blah. I wonder how Kimberly felt about that. Now, he’s doing it again.
David Cook has been dating, or more accurately was dating, Kim Johnston, a super hot model who is nine years older than him. Though I really like David Cook and try to stay up on who’s he dating, I hadn’t even heard of this relationship. Apparently it’s been going on for awhile but became known to everyone in August. Well, now David is trying to make it just as clear that he has broken up with Kim. Why? Because she is not worth losing one fan over. Trust me, I would never stop being David Cook’s fan because he was dating an older woman. I would however, lose respect for him if he thought life was a popularity contest and decided that fame was more important than his own happiness. From Star,
“David Cook broke off his romance with his nine-years-older girlfriend after news broke that he had secretly been dating the beautiful model.
Why? As the American Idol champ later texted Kim Johnston, “Dude, I’m losing fans over this!”
“David changed my life in so many good ways,” Kim, 35, tells Star in an exclusive interview. “But I also can’t forget my feeling of abandonment, when I was being slammed left and right. I’ve never had a man treat me as if he was ashamed to be associated with me!”
Kim and David, 26, became friends through MySpace in August 2008. They soon met face to face at David’s hotel in New York City — and Kim spent the night. “People will draw their own conclusions, so let them,” she tells Star. The couple grew close over a year’s time and saw each other as often as their busy schedules would allow.
Their romance became public this past August after a New York newspaper ran an item about them. Shortly after, says Kim, “There was a big change in David’s attitude!” And it wasn’t long before he cut Kim loose in the face of his fans’ apparent anger.
“I know David is a good person,” says Kim. “I hope he gets to the point where pleasing his fans doesn’t affect his happiness!”
Like I said, I hadn’t even heard about this budding relationship until I heard that David Cook had once again made a bone-head move towards the woman in his life. Really, is it too much that I hope that he gets it together real soon? Or am I completely overreacting?
