“It’s been kind of on its way out in the last couple of months,” the "American Idol" runner-up told South Florida Gay News on Friday.
Lambert, a runner-up on "American Idol's" eighth season, said that he and Sauli remained good friends.
I know it’s a cliché thing to say. But it’s totally true. I just gave him a coffee and bagel earlier today. He’s a great person and we’ve had an amazing couple of years together. Things have just run their course.
Lambert blamed their breakup on busy schedules and the stress of a long-distance relationship.
“I’ve been getting really busy and traveling a lot and and he’s been getting really busy because he has a show he’s filming for Finnish television," he said. "So we just decided to part ways.”
Lambert and Koskinen were arrested together in 2011 for fighting outside a bar in Finland. The two spent a night in jail.
