American Idol Contestant From Lumberton Sues
Former American Idol Contestan and Llumberton native “Michael Simeon” is suing the producers of the show. He claims he suffered major ear damage when an audiologist’s representative took out an earpiece he was wearing and part of his eardrum was removed. According to the lawsuit, Simeon immediately felt pain and blood came out of his ear for several hours. The lawsuit also says he has been unable to perform at the same level as prior to the incident, due to the absence of much of his eardrum. Simeon’s claims include negligence and product liability. It’s unknown at this time how much in damages the lawsuit seeks.
