The two had been detained just days earlier for getting into a skirmish outside of a Finish gay bar. Lambert was only in jail for several hours, but he's spent the days since offering mea culpas on Twitter.

“Violence is not to be taken lightly. Embarrassed by drunkenness,” Lambert wrote. "No punches thrown, no injuries and no charges. Media always exaggerates."

As for the sanctity of their relationship, Lambert and Koskinen, appear to be just fine. In addition to making the trip back to the states together, they posted a cheerful Christmas Eve portrait on WhoSay before departing Finland.

Lambert is currently promoting his single "Better Than I Know Myself."
