Tulisa Contostavlos is no longer a judge on The X Factor UK reports The Sun and The Mirror.
This is standard operating procedure for Simon Cowell when he is about to make a move: leak to the press. This is OK with me — I’m not a big fan of Tulisa. Her live solo performance on Britain’s Got Talent was not impressive.
Ruthless Simon Cowell has axed Tulisa Contostavlos from The X Factor judging panel as he tries to boost the show’s flagging ratings.
Tulisa, 24, was criticised by some for being “too distracted” with her personal life and for turning up late for a number of rehearsals.
A show source said: “Simon has always like to change things every year and Tulisa is going to pay the price for that.
“She wasn’t as committed last year as when she won with Little Mix in 2011 and someone has to exit to freshen the series up.”
