Report: Haley Reinhart dropped from Interscope

By Kathleen Danes

Despite a critically well-received album, "American Idol" alum and Wheeling native Haley Reinhart has parted ways with Interscope Records and 19 Recordings, the Los Angeles Times reported Tuesday.

Released in May, Reinhart's post-'Idol' debut "Listen Up" generally was praised by critics who complimented its smart pop sound.

It debuted at No. 17 on the Billboard 200 after it sold 20,000 copies in its first week.

In August, Reinhart made history as the first former "Idol" contestant to perform at the Lollapalooza festival.

She is currently touring with soul revivalist Allen Stone and will appear in McDonald's Thanksgiving Day Parade in Chicago Thursday morning.
