Australian Idol sweetheart Paulini Curuenavuli will continue to perform as the star of hit musical "The Bodyguard", despite facing seven years prison on bribery charges.

It is understood she will face court next week after allegedly paying $800 to a Roads and Maritime Services (RMS) employee in exchange for a fake unrestricted driver's licence.

As reported by The Daily Telegraph, Vaifale was already being investigated for distributing fake licences to family, friends and associates of the Rebels bikie gang. She was reportedly being looked at as part of an enquiry into a number of shootings in Western Sydney that involve Rebels and Finks bikies.

After her stint on Australian Idol in 2003, which saw her finish fourth, Paulini released her first two albums, One Determined Heart in 2004 and Superwoman in 2006.

Her lawyer Michael Korn said the 34-year-old singer was taking the allegations very seriously.

Curuenavuli is now starting in The Bodyguard Musical and will appear in court on August 16.
