Adam Lambert's Mother Talks Sex and Contracts

Adam Lambert, American Idol Season 8 Ray Mickshaw / FOX

Mum's the word for American Idol runner-up Adam Lambert's mother until he's ready to talk—and word is, he's finally ready.

"I would rather not answer until it comes out," Leila Lambert said in a phone interview with E! News regarding Adam's reported upcoming announcement to Rolling Stone that he is indeed gay.

But that's not the real shocker. Check out what she has to say about the behind-the-scenes antics of the Idol camp...

Leila says she also signed a contract with American Idol and is not allowed to discuss her son’s personal life anyway without their permission.

"We signed a contract with Idol and unless it has been set up by them, I'm not allowed to answer," says Leila.

We couldn't reach Idol reps at press time for comment.

Do you think Adam is doing the right thing by officially announcing his sexual preference? Fire away in the comments.
