"Idol" Contestant Wigs Out

2/27/2008 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

After once being linked to Britney Spears, "American Idol" contestant Robbie Carrico picked up one of the popwreck's habits -- a love for wigs!
Robbie Carrico

TMZ has learned the 26-year-old long-haired wannabe's mane is actually a wig and it's got "Idol" execs flipping out. Sources tell us Robbie never talks about his matted down piece and that makes production members feel like it's the blonde elephant in the room. It seems Simon was right last night -- Robbie is a fake!

Where's Sanjaya's pony-hawk or Kat McPhee's extensions when you need them?!

A rep for "Idol" would not comment.

Who care about his hair? Black people have fake hair all the time. They can sing real well. It's a singing talent contest, not a hair contest. So, why make this a news, and call him FAKE?

I was going to make a poll and ask wig or no wig, but since it's definitely a wig, i made is more clever and am now asking: is it a wig because Michael K says its a wig, or is it because TMZ says so. Time to vote:
