X Factor 2012: Tulisa to sue Tim Herbert – manager of X Factor hopefuls JukeBoxx
Chris Herbert, who was sacked from his consultancy role from ITV’s X Factor for his part in trying to cash in on the sex tape scandal that engulfed show judge, Tulisa Contostavlos, has rejoined the show, as a manager for one of the groups tipped to win the show.
Herbert, who was the genius behind the formation of 90′s super group, the Spice Girls, is currently managing boyband JukeBoxx, who wowed judges and audience members alike when they auditioned earlier this year for this years series of the show in one of the Manchester arena try-outs.
Speaking after the audition one audience member said: “Everyone was impressed, the crowd were on their feet. They sang original songs and had great choreography. They could win this.”
Another said: “They were the stand-out act.” Herbert’s involvement will infuriate Tulisa, who launched legal action against him over his involvement in the tape scandal.
According to the Sun newspaper, Tulisa, who was forced to make a public apology after the tape showing her performing a sexual act on former boyfriend, MC Ultra (Justin Edwards) earlier this year, will be horrified that Herbert is back on the show, especially in an even brighter spotlight by managing the group consisting of Adam Wallis, Daecolm Diego, Jazz Rocket and Xorael Harrison.
It is yet another kick in the teeth for poor Tulisa who must have thought that all this was finally behind after successfully winning two law suits and getting a confession out of her ex for leaking the tape in the first place
An insider told the paper: “The news JukeBoxx are managed by Chris will mortify Tulisa who is furious with him.”
“It is fair to say there is no love lost between Tulisa and Chris. She won’t be happy at the news he still has involvement with the show.
“But she is a pro and won’t allow this news to cloud her judgement.”
An X Factor spokesman said last night Herbert would be allowed to remain as JukeBoxx’s manager — despite being axed from his official role on the show.
