Underwood outs cruel ex-boyfriend

Carrie Underwood has named and shamed the boyfriend who was too embarrassed to be seen with her after a softball accident in a new magazine interview.

The pretty country star was left with a broken nose and two black eyes when the ball struck her squarely in the face - and her cruel boyfriend only made her feel worse.

She recalls: "I went on a date to the movies that night, and the guy wouldn't even take me out to eat after.

"The next day he told everyone he was embarrassed to be seen with me."

But Underwood has had the last laugh twice - snubbing the ex after she won American Idol and now naming him in an Instyle article.

She adds: "After Idol I went back home and signed autographs, and his younger siblings were there.

"They said: 'Do you remember Justin? He wanted us to give you his number.' Guess what? I did not call him."
