The former co-host of the first season of “American Idol” in 2002 is hitting back after TMZ unearthed his current occupation while reporting on Dunkleman’s divorce and custody battle with his estranged wife, Kalea Dunkleman.
The couple are the parents of a young son.
They also reported that he started that job in 2016 where he said he works about 45 hours a week and earns around $800 a week.
Dunkleman tweeted at TMZ and its founder, Harvey Levin, on Thursday.
“I chose to stop doing standup comedy and started driving an Uber so I could be there for my son as much as he needed after our life as we knew it was destroyed,” Dunkleman tweeted. Print that. @TMZ @HarveyLevinTMZ.”
Dunkleman is not the only actor to face “job shaming” in recent months.
“Of course, when it comes to the financial aspect, of course there are regrets. I wouldn’t be human if I said no,” he said.
