Jeff Archuleta -- Daddy Denial

5/26/2008 7:16 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The "Idol" runner-up's extreme stage dad cost the show serious coin by telling David to change the lyrics in one of his songs, which then got daddy banned from backstage -- but try asking Jeff Archuleta about it.

Ain't just a river in Egypt, my friend.

What    

TMZ, can't you just leave them alone now!!! This young man does not deserve the camera in his or his Dad's face like this. David A. is the one that will pay the price for you guys. Let it gooooo! Please. Both the David's are better sports then all of us!

So what??!! They use these kids to make tons of money. AI can afford it.

BTW, we wish David Archuletta much success! This kid can sing.

I thought he had to pay AI the amount of the damages.
He should be held liable.

Kathie is a phony    

At least he was gracious and didn't act like some idiots do, and by the way, why now do the paps have to ask stupid questions to try and instigate a reaction? Last I heard their job was to TAKE PICTURES. They need to at least keep their big mouths shut, if not get the hell lost altogether! David A should have taken the title, but he'll do just fine without AI.

Media whores    

He completely sunk his kids chances of winning. However...
The kid wasn't really exceptional anyway. He could possibly be a good singer if he didn't sound so rehearsed.
He sounds like he's imitating another singer. He just needs to relax and use his own voice. Screw the voice coaches... they ruin voices.
