Nicole Scherzinger is so annoyed with Simon Cowell’s meddling with her team on ‘The X Factor’ that she taken the unprecedented measure of banning him from attending rehearsals for her team members, Stacy, Josh and Leroy!
Radar Online broke the story in an exclusive this morning: The development came after Radar first reported last week that Simon had been attending Stacy’s rehearsals and criticized Nicole’s work in mentoring her. The bad blood boiled further when Simon boldly took credit for choosing Stacy’s song on last Wednesday’s episode.
An insider with the production crew told us that the former Dancing with the Stars champ — seething over Simon micromanaging her team — spent the weekend in seclusion mentoring her team with the Simon ban in full effect.
“Last week, Simon made a big deal out of choosing Stacy’s song, and he said he didn’t think she’s connected with them all. She wasn’t happy with him at all — so now Nicole isn’t taking any chances,” the insider said. “She’s made it clear these are her artists, she is mentoring them and Simon should back off!”
We’ll see the fallout when The X Factor returns on Fox Wednesday at 8/7c.
