Jermaine Jones (aka ‘The Gentle Giant’) isn’t so gentle! He hid two prior arrests from producers and is now going to be disqualified from ‘American Idol,’ TMZ is reporting.

Jermaine Jones seems like a sweet, soft spoken guy, but it turns out he’s had some unfortunate run ins with the law that will lead to his elimination from American Idol.

TMZ reports the 25-year-old singer and vocal coach was arrested twice last year and has outstanding warrants. In fact, one of his arrests was due to violence!

That said, we have to wonder if producers weren’t more upset with the fact Jermaine allegedly lied about being abandoned by his father 10 years ago, when, in fact, his dad has a relationship with him.

When reached out to American Idol reps, they had “no comment.”

Jermaine will have one final appearance tomorrow, but will be ousted after that. Will YOU miss him? Sound off below!
