Ex-Wife of Casey James: Music is Singer's Life

by at .

Kellie James has bad news for Kara DioGuardi:

No matter how much you fawn over Casey James, it won't go anywhere.

"Music is everything to Casey," said Kellie, the woman that was married to him from 2005 to 2008. "He just does what he loves to do, which is music, but he's never thought of himself as a heartthrob. Frankly, I think it embarrasses him."

So far, James has handled the inappropriate Kara crush very well each week on American Idol. It's a joke the show should really stop referring to over and over.

In her interview with The National Enquirer, Kellie also details the motorcycle accident that left Casey with a fractured left wrist and right femur. He was in a wheelchair for six months as a result of it.

"The doctors told us that they didn't know whether Casey would be able to use his hand again, much less play the guitar," said Kellie. "When he was finally able to play again, Casey felt he had a new lease on life."

It's a lease that has paid off very well through the early rounds of Idol. Casey is considered the male favorite on season nine.
