Is Louis Tomlinson Going To Replace Mel B On America's Got Talent?
The One Direction heartthrob is being lined up as a replacement judge - according to reports
Louis Tomlinson might be drafted in to replace Mel B as a judge on America’s Got Talent.
According to reports, the One Direction star is being sought to take a seat alongside Simon Cowell on the hit US show while Mel deals with her on-going personal issues.
Mel has been making headlines for the past few months since her marriage to producer Stephen Belafonte imploded amid a flurry of accusations of abuse and details of their sex life leaked to the press.
Now sources are suggesting Louis could be called in to replace Mel on AGT while she finalises her divorce process.
One source revealed to the Daily Star: “Simon is being incredibly loyal to Mel by insisting she stays for now, despite the fact she is totally stressed out.”
However a network executive had a different opinion.
“There are growing calls for Mel to be replaced by Louis immediately,” the second source said.
“Some producers feel she should be sidelined until her private life gets sorted out,” they continued.
“They think the stories of abuse, restraining orders and threesomes will drive away viewers,” they added.
While everyone hopes Mel is able to deal with her issues quickly, her judging seat would be in safe hands with Louis.
The Just Hold On singer was a guest judge on the show last year – and was a hit with viewers.
