Tulisa Contostavlos has labelled The Apprentice tycoon Lord Sugar "an ugly hobbit" after he criticised her performance on The X Factor at the weekend.
Tulisa took offence at the businessman-turned-TV personality tweeting The X Factor boss Simon Cowell, asking him to sack her.
He had written: "not wishing to be negative. You get back here and do X factor yourself and chuck Tulisa out. She knows nothing and talks rubbish"
Tulisa replied direct to Shugs: "u look like an ugly hobbit in ur dp lol. Stop tweeting about me & go & find some happiness! Its embarrassing u miserable old man"
Instead of responding with another insult, he offered a backhanded compliment about her ability to get so many stories in the papers.
And he continued: "Next PR stunt for @officialtulisa 'My cat died of exhaustion and heart attack'. SUN headline 'Tulisa agonises over her worn out pussy'"
Their latest exchange of fire follows a beef back in the summer, when she called him a "tw*t" for repeatedly badmouthing her.
