'Idol' Champ Affected by Tiger Woods Syndrome

Tiger Woods Syndrome: An epidemic sweeping the nation -- in which paranoid wives constantly worry that their "nice guy" husbands are secretly cheating on them every time they leave the house ... and now, TWS has infiltrated the home of an "American Idol" winner.

Kris Allen is just one of the many people affected by TWS -- last night, the "American Idol" runner-up winner told us his wife's been all over him since "reading all this stuff about Tiger."

Kris claims the paranoia is even causing his wife to have "bad dreams."

Unfortunately, there is no known cure for TWS.
