Yeager who was given the boot from Idol last Thursday (Feb. 28) constantly endured harsh criticism from Simon Cowell during his stint on the show, and hopes his young son will understand that the rude judge meant no harm.
As of late, Yeager hasnt had the chance to discuss Cowells cold comments with his kid, but hopes hell understand that Idol is just a TV show.
He says, I need to explain to him that Simons job on American Idol is to play the role of a mean guy, and neither one of us should take it personal. Still, if my son was a fan of Simons at one point, hes not a fan now!
But in the end, Yeager believes his son wont have any hard feelings thatll lead him to seek revenge on the brash Brit, so Simon can rest easy.
He adds, My son wont come back to Idol when hes older to yell at Simon You voted my dad off! or anything.
