Cristian de la Faker?

5/14/2008 2:04 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Cristian de la Fuente has been accused of faking his injury on "Dancing With the Stars" -- and last night's episode might be the proof.

Watch this clip from last night's episode closely -- Cristian's arm brace jumps from his left arm (the one he "injured") to his right. Is it just bad editing (his tattoo is always there)-- or is the soap star doing his best acting job yet?

Not all stars opt for plastic surgery when it comes to fixing those small imperfections, but a few might want to consider it. Especially after Dr. TMZ shows them what they could look like. Go ahead and be nosey!

Archuleta's Dad Gives Producer Cold Shoulder


Jeff Archuleta, David's dad, showed up in the audience for tonight's "American idol" and made it clear -- he's pissed at the producers.

As we first reported, Jeff was such a troublemaker, he was banned from backstage rehearsals. According to our spies, on tonight's show during commercials, Jeff shot darts at Executive Producer Nigel Lythgoe. J.A. stared Nigel down and was enraged as he watched the E.P. visibly excited as David Cook performed.

Jeff seemed chummy with Randy. The two bro'd out during several breaks. He hugged Paula two times and whispered something in her ear and she nodded in agreement. No interaction at all with Simon.

Jeff was trying to get the attention of legendary songwriter Diane Warren, but she pretty much wouldn't give him the time of day.

Imagine Me and You, I'll Sue


Two members of the 60's group, The Turtles (you know, "Happy Together'), have sued Capitol Records over an Ice Cube song -- bitches!
Click to read the documents!
According to the suit, filed today in L.A. County Superior Court, Flo & Eddie recorded a song in 1972 for The Turtles called "Buzzsaw." The suit claims the song was sampled in a rap song by Ice Cube called "Jackin' for Beats." Flo & Eddie allege Capital signed a deal for the derivative song but went beyond the agreement to make even more money.

Flo & Eddie want minimum $25,000 but not more than $70,000. We know, it's weird to set a limit when you sue.

Capital, Eddie & Flo -- not happy together.

Talk about a good case for libel! TMZ spreads the rumor that Cristian is faking the injury. Such "observant" folks at TMZ miss so many other obvious points. His ONLY tattoo would have had to switch arms, his hairline and part would have to reverse and, unless they changed locations, the crossbar on the gate in the background and all the shadows in the room have also reveresed. It is OBVIOUSLY a mirrored image yet TMZ decides to question whether he his faking the injury.
It just shows TMZ lacks any credibility by choosing to push and obviously flawed story.

2. If you notice, it is still the same arm. They are just doing the whole "mirror image" effect.

He has improved and it's good for his image, but still not as good as Christie or Jason. I think it will be a tie. Unless the women feel sorry for the guy. Christie needs to smile more. Fun to watch and those kids are fantastic.

He's not faking the injury, it's a fake picture. They just want you dumb people to make comments and to start something.
And Of Course, you have.
Like the other comment said, look at the hair, do you think he parted it on the other side just to make the photo look real??

He hurt his arm doing the show. The picture is a fake. He has to have surgery after DWTS is over. Believe it or not, dancing is a very strenuous exercise. Several people have gotten hurt while performing on the show.

Look at the part in his hair and you can see that it is a reverse image. He may be faking the severity, but the brace is on the same arm - left.

Howard, I saw the show where he hurt his arm and it was his left arm. He is not faking it.

If you look at the 2 photos, the one on the right is sharp and clear. The one on the left looks like a reverse. It is not clear as it should be and the tatoo is there but blurred as is the rest of the photo. Christian is not faking injury, we just have media (or someone) who has too much time on their hands so they get creative and want to instill doubt. Shame on that person!

I liked him in the beginning, but read where he was so arrogant and rude to someone at a Porche dealership. He thinks he is so hot, but with his attitude, I hope he goes down and Kristi or Jason win.
