Former "American Idol" singer Clay Aiken was apparently involved in a disturbance with another passenger Saturday while on an airplane headed to Tulsa International Airport.

The dispute occurred on a Continental Airlines flight between a woman and a man, whom FBI Special Agent Gary Johnson confirmed was a former "American Idol" contestant.

Aiken, who was a runner-up on the TV talent show in 2003, was headed to Tulsa Saturday for a performance at the Brady Theater. His management could not be reached for comment Saturday afternoon.

Johnson said he was told the dispute was over the male passenger's foot resting on another passenger's armrest.

He said the disturbance was a minor one.

There was an allegation that the woman gave the male passenger a "minor shove" during the argument, Johnson said.

"At that point the flight crew was able to resolve the situation," he said.

The disturbance occurred Saturday morning, said Tulsa Airport Authority spokeswoman Alexis Higgins.

Higgins said the passengers were held until FBI agents arrived to question them.

No injuries were reported and no arrests were made.

The disturbance did not interfere with the flight of the aircraft, Johnson said.

Clay Aiken Mocks The Music Of Justin Timberlake, Prince, Madonna and Others.

Clay Aiken, self proclaimed savior of the CBS television show "Jericho" opened his new tour on July 4th in Frisco, Texas at Pizza Hut Park between a soccer game and holiday fireworks.

Given the heights of stardom that Clay Aiken has risen to and the quality of music that he has consistently delivered, it should come as no suprise that someone as supreme as Clay Aiken should single out others in the music industry who can only aspire to one day be taken as seriously, and become as successful as Clay Aiken is.

Chosen for derision by Clay Aiken were lesser known performers such as Justin Timberlake, Madonna, Britney Spears, Prince and Michael Jackson.

After complaining about what music is played on top 40 radio, Clay Aiken proceeded to launch into a medley to shine a light on how these other artists can't compare to Clay's awesome talent.

Clay Aiken was runner up in season two of American Idol, losing to Ruben Studdard and has had a minor hit single, "Invisible".

He's also a fucking idiot.
