Baker’s troubles included serious allegations made against him by his ex and the hate he has received since then. Mariah shared screenshots of text messages that Baker allegedly cheated on her in a video posted on her TikTok account (@ atx.mer) with 30.3k followers.
Mariah claimed that Baker’s portrayal of the young father and poor man helping him become America’s girlfriend was a nonsense. In the same video, there was also a close-up photo of a woman’s scarred forehead showing Mariah and hinting that Baker did it. Mariah wrote in the caption of the video, “People aren’t always what they look like on TV. I’m always tired of being silenced. You even denied that my daughter was yours # cheater #americanidol #fyp”.
Baker had enormous support throughout his ‘Idol’ journey when talking about a family man and the father of a newborn girl. He was recognized as “country Justin Bieber” by judges Katy Perry and Luke Bryan, who called him the best country singer of the season during the audition.
Baker made it into the top 24, but his performance on the tour wasn’t the best and it also looked like he wasn’t at the right headspace throughout the episode. Eventually, they all impacted their results and were removed from the show in last week’s episode.
