A spokesperson for an American TV show has refused to comment on reports AMERICAN IDOL judge PAULA ABDUL was "out of it" during a recent interview.
According to a source quoted on the MSNBC website, the former pop star was visibly incapacitated when she was interviewed on the NBC network's LIVING IT UP WITH ALI AND JACK programme, and even appeared to fall asleep at one point.
They say, "She was out of it. She was slit-eyed and slurring.
"Paula's said to have had the flu lately - she (reportedly) recently split with some guy - but I'm surprised they would let her go on the air like that."
However, the source added that they did not believe Abdul's state was due to drink or drugs.
A spokesperson for the show says, "She wasn't feeling well. I didn't see it, but she didn't fall asleep. She just wasn't feeling her best."
