HELSINKI, Finland -- “American Idol” runner-up Adam Lambert and boyfriend Sauli Koskinen were both arrested in Helsinki, Finland, on Thursday.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Adam, 29, and Sauli, 26, winner of the Finnish version of “Big Brother,” had a dispute at local gay bar Don’t Tell Mama, which led to them both being ejected from the establishment.
The fight then reportedly continued on the street, where Finnish beauty queen Sofia Ruusila – who was partying with the pair – was allegedly struck in the face during the fracas.
Police then reportedly arrived on the scene and arrested the pair, who were later released Thursday afternoon (Helsinki local time).
The “What Do You Want From Me” singer later took to Twitter confirming the incident and his arrest.
“Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned. Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it,” the singer wrote.
Sauli blogged about the incident, writing, “Fame is not easy. Celebrities are only human. Love is not easy either, but it is forever!”
