Jeff Archuleta Barred from American Idol

by at . Comments

While Jeff Archuleta may deny that he's a controlling father, his son will need to finish his run on American Idol without the assistance of his dad.

According to reports, Jeff has had his backstage access revoked, leaving David Archuleta to practice on his own as the series heads to a conclusion.

People says Jeff Archuleta is accused of overstepping his boundaries when he wanted David to alter his "Stand By Me" performance by adding a verse from Sean Kingston's 2007 summer hit "Beautiful Girls."

Show sources said Jeff ignored the producers' objections, which led to problems with the song's publisher. Despite being banned backstage, the elder Archulea will be allowed to sit in the audience during the live show.
