ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Phillip Phillips wants to get out of his contracts with American Idol.
The Hollywood Reporter said that Phillips is trying to void his various contracts with 19 Entertainment, the company that produces the hit show.
He's filed a petition with the California Labor Commissioner.
Phillips signed the contracts before he won the 11th season of American Idol three years ago.
His lawyers call the agreements oppressive.
But 19 Entertainment says they will defend themselves vigorously.
