Adam Lambert turned to Twitter after arrest with boyfriend

lambertAdam122311_optMaybe Adam Lambert should add “Jailhouse Rock” to his repertoire of songs.

Lambert, the former “American Idol” runner-up, found himself behind bars in Helsinki after a lover’s quarrel with Finnish “Big Brother” winner Sauli Koskinen spilled from a gay nightclub onto the street.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two reality TV stars were partying with former Miss Helsinki Sofia Ruusila in a back room at DTM (Don’t Tell Mama) in the wee hours on Dec. 22 when the squabble started.

The New York Daily News reported that the pair were tossed from the club and the altercation got physical as people tried to break up the fight. Ruusila said Lambert accidentally hit her when she tried to intervene.

Lambert and Koskinen were arrested at about 4 a.m. and spent several hours in the slammer for questioning as the police investigated as many as four possible assault offenses. They were released that afternoon.

The reason for the disagreement between the couple wasn’t known.

Fresh from the release of his single “Better Than I Know Myself” from his new album “Trespassing,” Lambert was in Finland to celebrate the holidays with Koskinen. The singer posted on Twitter that the single, released on Dec. 20, was No. 2 on iTunes in the Middle East.

After their release, Koskinen blogged: “Celebrities are people too and fame is not easy. Love is not always easy either, but it's forever.”

Lambert tweeted: “Jetlag+Vodka=blackout. Us÷blackout=irrational confusion. jail+guilt+press=lesson learned.Sauli+Adam+hangover burgers= laughing bout it. :)”

Later he added a more coherent post on Twitter: “Violence is not to be taken lightly. Embarrassed by drunkenness. No punches thrown, no injuries and no charges. Media always exaggerates.”

This is not the flamboyant American Idol star’s first brush with trouble.

NJ.com noted in its report on the Helsinki incident that Lambert was accused of assaulting a paparazzo trying to shoot his picture in Miami last year. “They’re real good at provoking, but there ain’t any pics or video of the b.s they spew out,” Lambert tweeted at the time. “I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great.”

He also caused a stir at Lady Gaga’s birthday bash at La Cita Mexican Restaurant in Los Angeles, which he crashed in a drunken state last March, according to contactmusic.com.

Lambert, who finished second on “Idol” in 2009, and Koskinen, who won the “Big Brother” show in 2007, have been dating since 2010.

I am sickened by all the negitive ....This is the season to be happy and greatful. I myself am greatful for the beautiful music Adam gives us and the beautiful person he is. He does not hide who he is and I respect him for this. His music gets me through every day at work and I say thanks Adam. If he is having a rough patch in his private life, and who hasn't, chalk it up to a bad choice in not keeping it more private. Since I was not there, no comment on his alleged " lovers quarrel". I wish Adam and his family a Happy Holiday.Looking forward to 2012 and more music from Adam.

This is not the behavior of someone in love...Adam get home to your family and get help...alcohol is not the cause of your behavior...it's a symptom. Praying for you Adam. This is what happens when people are separated from Truth and Love.

Your article was pretty factual until you got to the Lady Gaga part. Lady Gaga has said that Adam was NOT kicked out of her birthday. That was a made up situation perpetuated by Perez Hilton, the scumbag who is jealous because Adam won't give him the time of day. The incident in Miami DID happen because the papz called him homophobic names. They had been filming him and his party for over an hour and finally got a rise out of him. I wish everyone wasn't so quick to judge. Adam screwed up in Finland and he knows it. He had tweeted earlier that jet lag sucked. He had just flown to Shanghai two days before for a performance and then flew to Helsinki. I'm not defending his actions there, just trying to keep the stories in perspective.

Lambert is such a hypocrite. He mocks what he calls poor white trash behavior on Teen Mom and Jersey Shore, then does the same thing twice in one year. He says he wants it to be all about his music, then chooses to behave in ways that guarantee no one's paying attention to his music.
