It is safe to say that Tony Kushian, Crystal Bowersox’s boyfriend is just a small-town boy, clearly not ready for the life-changing lifestyle his girlfriend is about to face. The American Idol runner-up says that she is okay with the “mutual” decision, however, she had at least hoped that he would have stayed for the biggest moment of her singing career, the Finale results show. How devastating to lose out on the title you have been fighting for and your biggest supporter. Be sure to check photos and videos below.

As a biography, not too much is known about Tony Kushian. He is 26 years old and is most-known for wearing “flag-printed” pants in support of his American Idol contestant and favorite, Crystal Bowersox.

According to reports, American Idol’s runner-up, Crystal Bowersox, sat in a candid interview with American Idol’s judge Kara DioGuardi and tv show host Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” this morning. During their meeting, Ryan “exclusively” asked Bowersox about her tough morning the day of their performances. In response, Bowersox said regardless of their split, she was ready for some incredibly, huge life changes. The couple sadly ended their relationship on Wednesday morning. Here’s a little he-said, she-said recap for you.

Crystal said: “Big Tony … he went home. He wasn’t cool with the lifestyle. I didn’t break up with him … it was a mutual thing.”

Tony said: “It’s kind of tough at times, but you get used to it and we’re all happy. Some days are more fun than others. But it’s been hard to find friends out there. I want to keep it low key. I don’t need the attention.”

She said: “He’s a small-town guy and it’s fine. But I’m a small-town girl [and] I want this. I want this more than anything — this career, this lifestyle. I didn’t think he was up for it. He didn’t think he was up for it.”

Of course Kara wouldn’t be Kara if she couldn’t pass judgment on Crystal Bowersox’s relationship, with a few words of wisdom, “You have to do your music. It’s not a choice for you. It’s what makes you whole. If somebody can’t hang with that — I’m sure he’s a lovely guy, but right now this is your dream.”

On a softer note, American Idol’s runner-up expressed that her ex was nothing short of awesome, sharing, “He’s been amazing. He stuck it out through this whole thing. … We’re going to be friends for a long time.” And you should be! Just like Seacrest said, let the dust settle and maybe things will eventually be clear.

Even though her whole world is about to change, the singer says she is ready! Best of luck to Tony Kushian, formally Crystal Bowersox’s boyfriend.
