Cheryl Cole: "Louis Walsh Is Stupid"
As Simon Cowell has apparently 'had enough' of the feuding pair...
The Girls Aloud star and Louis have been at war since the Irish music mogul told Chezza 'it's not all about you' and interrupted her as she tried to give advice to contestants on this weekend's show.
As their feuding threatens to overshadow the competition, Cheryl has now told Louis he is making himself 'look like an idiot' by attacking her on the panel.
The 27-year old told X Magazine: "It was really out of context. It was random. I just said to him [Louis] 'If there's a problem, come to my dressing room, and let's have it out. Why are you shouting at us? What's that all about?'"
"I hadn't even mentioned myself when he said 'it's not all about you - you're making yourself look stupid!' No, actually, you are Louis."
Cole also went onto claim that the show itself was more important to Louis that his acts, stating: "Maybe he might think it's all about the judges because he's a judge. But for me, it's about my girls and how they perform. I really don't care what Louis' opinion of me is."
Following Cheryl's accusations, a pal of Walsh's has since told the newspaper: "Cheryl's the one who spends the least time with her singers."
Meanwhile, Simom Cowell has confirmed there is a divide between the judges, claiming that they are 'openly at war.'
SiCo told The Mirror: "There are definitely two divisions. You've got Louis and Dannii, who look like they've been sucking on lemons. And then there's me and Cheryl trying to have a good time."
However, despite Cowell's claims that he and Cheryl are best buddies on the show, The Sun has reported that after his act Diva Fever left the competition on Sunday's results show, he threw the 'mother of all hissy fits' when Cole and Louis teased him about having only two groups left.
Chez is said to have poked fun at SiCo, saying: "You've not really got the hang of this this year, have you pet?"
Her arch rival Louis then reportedly added: "Oh no Simon, you've lost another act. Who's going next week, Belle Amie?"
Fuming Cowell then allegedly told pals off camera: "Get me out of here - I've had enough of this."
The XF boss' aide added to the tabloid: "This was the worst strop he's ever thrown. It was the mother of all hissy fits."
