Insiders from the X-Factor today denied reports of a massive backstage bust up bitch fight between hopeful wannabes Katie Waissel and Cher Lloyd.
Some unscrupulous sources claimed that Cher had called Katie a bunch of nasty names, to which Katie allegedly responded by slapping Cher's face. It was then claimed that the two resorted to hissing and hair pulling. The culmination seemingly coming when Katie snatched a cream horn off a side table, and stuffed it down Cher's knickers.
"It's a load of old bollocks is that," our insider told Skoob Entertainment News. "It simply didn't happen. Katie and Cher are both quite shy, and reserved. They hate the limelight. It's something they feel pushed into, simply because they're both so incredibly beautiful and talented, and they do it because it's expected of them. Life can be incredibly difficult when you're young, gifted and stunningly beautiful. Like what they are. And that."
Our reporter found this view somewhat at odds with other information he had picked up, which suggested to him that Cher was a neurotic bully with an eating disorder and a foul temper. He also heard Katie described as a fame junkie who would shag a damp cloth if it was likely to enhance her fame in any way.
We wouldn't know one way or other if we're honest. Much less give a damn.
More as we get it.
