Corey Clark didn’t find Paula Abdul’s Saturday Night Live appearance funny.
In response to Abdul’s weekend TV cameo, axed American Idol contestant Clark, who claims to have had a personal relationship with the Idol judge in 2003, says he possesses “explicit” and “incriminating” evidence of their alleged affair, his attorney, Richard B. Jefferson, tells the Associated Press.
But the 24-year-old singer has not expressed “any plans to voluntarily reveal additional incriminating evidence, which he possesses, to the general public that undoubtedly proves the extent of their involvement because of its explicit nature,” says Jefferson.
Jefferson adds his client will “fully cooperate with any governmental agency that launches an investigation stemming from his claims.”
Jed Wallace, a spokesman for Clark (who reportedly is shopping a book proposal about his experience), refused to comment Tuesday on what sort of “evidence” Clark might have.
Abdul’s spokesman, Shawn Sachs, did not immediately comment to AP. Previously, Abdul, 42, issued a statement calling Clark an “admitted liar” and describing his claims as “character assassination.”
Insists Clark’s lawyer: “Neither Ms. Abdul’s vague statement nor her satire regarding this incident refutes her inappropriate relationship with Mr. Clark or discredits the veracity of his claims.”
On last weekend’s SNL, Amy Poehler played Abdul, while Finesse Mitchell mimicked Clark as if appearing on Idol.
“Corey, that was beautiful,” said Poehler. “You really blew me away. It’s like I rolled over and said to you this morning, ‘You have real star quality.’ I’ll see you at home.”
At the end of the skit, Abdul critiqued Poehler, saying: “You need to perfect the clap a little more and be a lot more sexier so contestants will be willing to sleep with you.”
