Simon Cowell 'Furious' Over Mel B Accusing Fleur East Of Cheating On X Factor
The judges didn't see eye to eye during the show last weekend, as Mel B told it how it is...
Mel B had accused his act Fleur East of 'cheating' during her performance the night before, saying she relied to heavily on her backing track.
"Simon was absolutely furious with Mel over what she said. He has really moulded Fleur and he thinks she’s got a real chance of winning the competition, going on to have a great career and ultimately making him a lot of money," a source told the The Sun.
"There’s nothing worse than being branded a cheater and even at this stage of the show, it could be a dfficult tag to shake off."
"Usually after Xtra Factor the judges will have a bit of a debrief and a chat, but Simon was so angry he stormed off to his dressing room," they added.
The comment which caused the alleged controversy following Fleur's performance, came when Mel told her: "That was a great performance, the only thing is on that chorus I didn’t hear your voice pop against the backing track so I found that a little bit like cheating."
Drama, drama, drama.
