Crystal Bowersox sets the record straight on her breakup with boyfriend Tony Kusian in an upcoming issue of Redbook.

"I really want to clear up some misunderstood stuff about Tony's and my breakup the night of the Idol finale and let people know how amazing he was through the whole process. I feel like he's getting portrayed as this person who up and left me on the biggest day of my life, and that's not the case at all," the American Idol runner-up told the magazine, which hits newsstands next week. "I mean, he's getting hate mail and horrible messages online. So I want to make clear how amazing, kind, and generous a person he is ..."

Also in the profile, the 24-year-old from Elliston, Ohio, opens up about how she convinced American Idol producers not to kick her off the show when she was hospitalized overnight because of diabetes, and whether she's ready to jump back into a relationship.

Bowersox is on tour with the other nine American Idol finalists from this season. The concert arrives in Toledo on Aug. 29 at Huntington Center, 500 Jefferson Ave. Tickets are $40.50, $50.50, and $70.50 from the center ticket office, livenation.com, Ticketmaster, and by phone at 800-745-3000.
