‘American Idol’ Star’s Wife Gets Restraining Order Against Him

Former “American Idol” star Chikezie Eze has gotten a restraining order against him by his estranged wife Linda Iruke. A judge has ordered him to stay away from her and their kids.

According to TMZ, Linda says she was forced to move to a domestic violence safe house in August “because of all the abuse.” The couple have been separated since May 2017.

The restraining order requires Chikezie to stay at least 100 yards away from Linda, their kids, and her home and work location.

How unfortunate. The contestant selection on “American Idol” in the past seemed to target contestants prone to get in trouble. (Why? For drama of course!) Hopefully the contestants this season won’t see headlines like this. The show is now on ABC instead of FOX.
