Alexandra Burke Threatens to Sue her Mum

Filed under: Alexandra Burke

X Factor 2008 winner Alexandra Burke is alleged to have threatened to sue her mother, former Soul II Soul singer Michelle over a new ‘tell-all’ book.

Alexandra is said to have accused her mother of “cashing in” on her fame, and threatened to sue her after “begging her mum not to go ahead with the book”. Melissa is alleged to have serious money problems, and the book would seem to provide the answer to this.

A family friend was quoted in the News of the World saying:

“Everybody thinks she’s rich because she has this popstar daughter but the truth is she’s an ill woman struggling to get by.

“Alex does her best to support her mum and would have kept doing that, but she said she’d have to get lawyers involved and sue if Melissa went ahead with her publishing deal.”

Sharon Osbourne to Return to X Factor?

There are strong rumours that Sharon Osbourne is to return to the X Factor. Osbourne would replace Dannii Minogue, who is currently expecting her first child.

“I see Simon next week. I haven’t said congratulations about his engagement yet. I don’t know what will happen. I might find out from Simon next week.” Sharon was quoted as saying in the Mirror.

Sharon Osbourne was a popular judge with the public, but left after a series of rows with Dannii Minogue. There have been rumours before about a return to the X Factor, but these are the strongest signs yet it may happen.

Filed under: Simon Cowell

Simon Cowell has revealed that he is ‘appalled’ at the way he treats contestants on the X Factor.

Speaking in an interview with Piers Moron, to be screened on ITV1 this Saturday, Cowell said “There are many, many times where I’ve watched the show back and I’m absolutely appalled. I think that you’ve got to be able to take it back as much as give it out – and it’s a delicate balance.”.

Many reality TV show contestants have faced the wrath of Cowell over the years. Pop Idol winner Will Young was intiailly noticed for talking back to Cowell – so clearly Simon’s not always right!
