Adam Lambert Splits With Boyfriend Sauli Koskinen: Report

Posted: Updated:

Singer Adam Lambert has split with his longtime boyfriend Sauli Koskinen.

The "American Idol" alum told South Florida Gay News that the relationship with the winner of Finland's "Big Brother" had "run [its] course" and had been "kind of on its way out in the last couple of months," although the two remain close.

“Sauli and I remain really good friends, and I know it’s a cliché thing to say. But it’s totally true,” Lambert, 31, is quoted as saying. “I’ve been getting really busy and traveling a lot and and he’s been getting really busy because he has a show he’s filming for Finnish television. So we just decided to part ways.”

The pair have a tumultuous history. In 2011, Lambert was arrested and briefly jailed on assault charges after a heated quarrel with Koskinen outside of a Helsinki gay bar.

At the time, Koskinen responded to the incident on his blog, according to TMZ. "Publicity is not easy, but also celebrities are just human," he writes. "Love is not easy either, but it lasts forever!"

South Florida Gay News also reports that Lambert will perform at the Miami Beach PrideFest on April 14.
