Reports from across the pond suggest that Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul are at war! Rumours are rife that rather explosive fights are erupting backstage between the X Factor USA judges over who gets to wear what.
Reports claiming that Paula doesn’t want to be stood up by a “younger, sexier woman,” even though that’s exactly what she is.
But the former Pussycat Doll is no stranger to a cat fight or two, her time in the aforementioned band was riddled with backstage conflicts that she apparently always came out of on top and sources say Nicole has started to “push back.”
A source for the programme has denied the reports, saying that Nicole and Paula “have, and always have had a great relationship.” However, we Brits have the knowledge of experience on our sides, and we know that there is no smoke without fire.
X Factor fights!
News of the elder female judge being a tad jealous of her younger counterpart is all too familiar, as Sharon Osbourne infamously left the show due to conflicts with Dannii Minogue.
The news comes along with reports that the X Factor USA has not launched with the kind of ratings Simon Cowell is used to and is now struggling compared to well-established Amercian Idol.
So this could be the exact kind of drama he is hoping for to get viewers tuned in. We are going straight to the printers to get our ‘Team Nicole’ t-shirts printed. Move over Paula, you’ve had your turn. Get our Cheryl back on there.
