LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- A year ago, leggy Haley Scarnato was on top of the world, performing as one of the final ten contestants on Season 6 of “American Idol.”
But now, the brunette singer revealed to Access Hollywood that her fame came with a price.
Scarnato is currently being forced to leave Nashville, Tennessee, the place she’s made her home, because of a stalker.
“That's probably the main reason why I'm leaving,” Haley told Access. “I’ve had a few scary moments at the house.”
The former contender, originally from San Antonio, Texas, is heading back for the Lone Star State after several frightening instances.
“I just had some break-ins and some notes and stuff like that. [I’ve had] stuff taken,” she explained. “I'm completely by myself and I just am scared.”
But things haven’t been all bad, as Haley has found many opportunities in the music business since leaving the show.
“’Idol’ just opens so many doors,” she added. “We have a name now and we can actually call people and network and they’re like, ‘Yeah! I want to hear her stuff.’ It’s just really great because any other time they’d be like, ‘No Thank you.’”
