X Factor Finalists Only The Young Have Split Up And It's All Kicked Off
All good things and all that...
Tissues at the ready, guys.
Last year's X Factor finalists, Only The Young, have split up. *SOBS UNCONTROLLABLY*
The band, who were mentored by Louis Walsh, originally formed in 2012, but after 3 fun years, it's all over.
Parisa Tarjomani wrote a massive open letter to the fans on her blog explaining why the split had happened:
"During these past 3 years I have really grown up and I have learnt that you sometimes have to move on when things no longer make you happy. It got to the stage where performing and meeting you guys, was the only bonus for me.
"I brought in 3 other people to a project that I truly believed in and I thank them all for the memories we've created together. Betsy, Charlie & Mikey, I wish you every success in the future and have had some of the best times of my life with you, which I will never forget.
"I'd be lying if I said that there weren't times that were tough, having to go through the most difficult time of my life, but still having to go out into the public eye with a smile on my face - it wasn't easy. It really does put a huge strain and stress on you. But without you guys realizing, your constant loyalty and support does help."
The band then tweeted some personal comments from their official account...
It's been an amazing 3 years but I share Parisa's thoughts... Thankyou to all of you! Only the young will be my fondest memories 😘 C X

But it all got a bit ugly when Besty-Blue took to Facebook to reveal what's REALLY been going on. She started with "Just want you all to know the truth".
Only for Parisa's lil sis, Zahra, to tweet some rather angry words her way, saying: "Stop LYING. We all know the truth. Bruised ego eh???" which has since mysteriously disappeared...
She then took to Twitlonger to say a few words, ending with this:
"Thanks guys for everything these past 3 years, it's honestly been the best of my life, but it is sad when you think you know people…"
It sounds like there were a few issues behind the scenes, but we hope everyone's happy now. We're really excited to see what they'll do in the future, too!
