"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.

Funny Funny. I have been watching IDOL this year and I saw him so I went to see his website on myspace I think it was and so recently he still had the short white-blonde hair. So I was wondering how he could possibly have gotten this long rocker hair so fast.....yea never thought he would go so far as a wig.

I agree with regard to this actually NOT being a news worthy story for TMZ!
Having said that, I already knew it was a wig, you just confirmed it to be true.
All I can say is I can't fathom why he would wear wigs that are so God awful ugly and obvious!

#36 (thats right) - Sure "havery"...[/sounds better] has hair plugs. Hell, if it's posted on the interweb, it must be true. Yes?

#36 THATS RIGHT....

I thought the same thing too....kept wondering why he doesn't wash his hair...but last night when they did a close up on him...it was obvious the guy was wearing a rug.....but with that being said....doesn't matter to me if it's a rug or not.

I think a man without cancer wearing a wig is just crazy. Weirdo.

Just an FYI guys--he's my cousin and he does not have fake hair! I agree with Tuna--black folks get extensions and "weaves" all the time. Who the hell cares?!?!

First of all, for TMZ to even be commenting on this is just pathetic; IT'S NOT RELEVANT TO HIS TALENT!! That said, all of you total morons who just keep adding inane comments about it are even MORE PATHETIC!! Do any of you realize how many male celebrities wear hair extensions, toupees, hairpieces, etc.? Believe me, many more than you can imagine, and you'd never be able to tell because they can afford to have these services provided to them by the most skilled professionals in the world. It has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with his talent. When you are watching him perform and listening to him sing, does his hair change the way his voice sounds? If so, you've got serious issues that require help that sitting around posting on TMZ cannot provide you with! So c'mon people, get over it. If you want to bitch about something, at least make it about something of substance that actually affects you!
