Adam Lambert is chagrined by his involvement in an alleged alcohol-fueled altercation with his boyfriend, Sauli Koskinen, in Finland earlier this week, but says the reports about the incident have been exaggerated.
"Violence is not to be taken lightly. Embarrassed by drunkenness. No punches thrown, no injuries and no charges. Media always exaggerates," the singer Tweeted Thursday night.
Lambert, 29, and Koskinen, 26, were reportedly taken to jail early Thursday morning in Helsinki, where Koskinen is a reality TV star, after getting into a fight in a well-known gay club.

Adam Lambert and his boyfriend, Finnish reality star Sauli Koskinen, were both jailed in Helsinki early Thursday morning after reportedly getting into a dispute that led to a physical altercation at a bar.
Lambert, 29, a former American Idol runner-up, and Koskinen, 26, a winner of the Finnish version of Big Brother, were held for questioning as local police looked into four possible assault offenses, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
They were released Thursday afternoon. Koskinen then blogged about the incident, suggesting the pair had patched things up.

American Idol fans tuned in to the season 10 premiere last week to see how the new crop of contestants – and judges Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler – would fare in the first season without Simon Cowell.
While some critics have already accused the newbies of being too nice, there's one insider who anticipates they'll do just fine.
"They both have a lot of experience in the business, and I have a feeling they're both going to be really straight ahead with people, which is always really helpful," season 8 runner-up Adam Lambert tells PEOPLE of the latest additions to the panel.
Lambert, who skipped the premiere episode Wednesday night to attend an Elton John benefit concert for the American Foundation for Equal Rights, hasn't met Lopez or Tyler yet but says he looks forward to watching them later this season – after he gets his TiVo set up in his new Los Angeles home.

It's that time of year again – and Hollywood is joining in on the fun of April Fools' Day. From fake pregnancies to Twitter hacking, here's how some stars are messing with their fans:
Is Brooke Burke pregnant? "Where is your sense of humor?!? I will not be Dancing With baby #5. lOL Got you!!!! April Fools!!!" the Dancing with the Stars co-host, whose Web site reported the fake news on Thursday, Tweeted later in the day. (She even had her mom believing there would be another Burke baby on the way.)
Justin Bieber's already topped the pop charts – but what about the Web? The 16-year-old singer "bought" FunnyOrDie.com, renamed it Bieber or Die, and declared, "Anything that's not Bieber dies!"
Are the guys of Coldplay the latest celebs launching a signature fragrance? The band broke the faux news on their Web site that Angst by Coldplay, which features ingredients such as sangre, sudor and lagrimas, can now be purchased online for £42, although it's already sold out.

No one can bring out the stars quite like Clive Davis! The music mogul's Pre-Grammy Gala & Salute to Industry Icons (this year honoring Universal Music Group Chairman and CEO Doug Morris) is an annual tradition and one of the biggest parties of the year. And with a bevy of stars – including Jay-Z, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Russell Brand, Taylor Swift, Ne-Yo, Sheryl Crow, Adam Lambert and Barbra Streisand – in attendance, Saturday night's bash at the Beverly Hilton Hotel was no exception.
"It's one of those parties that you have to come to," Ciara, in head-to-toe Givenchy, told PEOPLE on her way in. "I'm excited to see everybody! It's cool to see people that you know, people that you don't know. It's always great to see Clive, and I'm just looking forward to having a great time."
Fergie, in a Zuhair Murad party dress, breezed down the red carpet in a hurry, stopping only to have a happy chat with Nick Jonas. But the singer had a good reason to rush: The Black Eyed Peas opened the show with Slash singing the classic Guns n' Rose's tune "Sweet Child O' Mine."

It's hardly like Adam Lambert to be anything but upfront, so the recent mystery about his possible appearing with Oprah Winfrey on her show was a bit baffling. But baffle no more.
While the American Idol sensation addressed the rumors and Twittered last Thursday, "Oprah: def true," word from the Winfrey camp reached PEOPLE to say that the 27-year-old and the media queen taped their interview Wednesday at the Harpo Studios in Chicago. The show will air Tuesday, Jan. 19.
