Crystal Bowersox former boyfriend Tony Kusian hopes she finds happiness with her new fiancé Brian Walker, RadarOnline.com can reveal.
The talented American Idol runner-up shocked her millions of fans when she announced recently that she was getting married to Walker, later this month.
Kusian was thrust into the spotlight after Bowersox dramatically broke-up with him 24 hours before last May’s Idol final in which she finished runner-up to Lee DeWyze.
Kusian’s step mom, Pauleen, told RadarOnline.com: “I think the whole world was surprised by Crystal’s announcement but I know that Tony wishes her and her son well for the future.
“They dated for about a year and I don’t think he really wanted the same lifestyle as Crystal in the end – he is from a different planet to that actually.
“But Tony is a really grounded guy and he is surrounded by a lot of family, so, I know that he is going to be okay.”
While musical powerhouse Bowersox continues to try and seek fame and fortune, Kusian — who she once described as a “small town guy” — has returned to a much simpler life in Ohio with his family.
However, his step-mom wouldn’t confirm if he had found a new girlfriend or not.
