James Arthur will be glad to hear that someone is fighting his corner, as he becomes embroiled in yet another controversy, once again with a woman he reportedly made advances towards.

The X Factor winner has seen his career marred by one scandal after another and just when it looked like it was all dying down, a model named Teddy Edwardes made some more seedy accusations about the Impossible singer.

Teddy shared a picture of a Whatsapp conversation, which she claimed was between James and herself, and in the texts she was apparently propositioned, rather lewdly, as you can see below.

James Arthur hit back on Twitter, denying ever being in contact with the brunette beauty and insisting the text exchange was initiated by his – now sacked – PA.

Lucy Spraggan added to the mess when she supposedly tweeted that the number published was for James’ personal phone, though she later deleted the post.

As the whole world gathers to criticise James, he has found one ally, in the form of tattooed glamour model Sallie Axl.

Sallie has insisted that she was once the victim of Teddy’s lies. She thinks the wannabe has either fabricated the whole text exchange, or saved them from last year, waiting for the best time to make her strike.

The former Celebrity Big Brother housemate tweeted;

“saving screen shots from a year ago , she did with with the intention to distroy and humiliate him x”

She added:

“I actually feel sorry for @JamesArthur23 I know what a attention seeking freak that girl is! Model??? I don’t think bedroom babes counts”

Sallie also posted:

“High morals and not getting your boobs out??? Your a liar and try and make people want to kill themselves with how disgusting you are”

As we mentioned earlier today, it looks like James is coming to the end of his tether.

He has blasted the media furore surrounding him, hit out at Lucy, and got into a spat with yet another journalist on his page.

While we by no means take the side of Teddy in all this, wouldn’t it be better for Arthur to make one measured response and then leave Twitter for a while?

All the swearing, the lashing out and the blaming his PA only serves to take attention away from his music and from his tour – which has been receiving rave reviews of late – and bit by bit, the controversy is chipping away at his chance of a long running recording career.

Simon Cowell will only take so much trouble and we’d say he’s reaching his threshold around about now.

Have a watch of what we think is one of James’ best live performances to date. Let’s hope he’s allowed to get back to what he loves very, very soon.

    Thank goodness someone has spoken up for James. I agree that it would be best if he left Twitter if only for the simple reason that he is one man against the media or any haters who want to destroy him. For his own sanity he should stay away from social media and continue doing what he is having success with – his fantastic musical ability. For every one hater there are thousands of fans. So sad that jealous people are determined to destroy this young man. James – take the advice that Steve Brookstein has offered you on Twitter and know that you are a good soul and need to keep yourself safe. Leave the haters to social media and concentrate on real life – your life. Good luck King Arthur.

    Who is this nobody defending James? I’ve yet to see anyone with credibility stick up for him. Most people just see him as a joke now. He’s destroyed his own career.

    Despite detrimental media coverage, Arthur stands for everything that is good in a human being, in terms of mental health and anti-bullying beliefs and values. This veracious individual has an inner strength that will, ultimately, not allow the media to sabotage him and will allow him to have an incredible career in the music industry. Arthur is the most lyrically and musically profound artist to ever have been brought to the nation in a long time.

    His emotional awareness and courage to sing from the depths of his soul, has undoubtedly, reached a huge amount of people, where they too, need lyrics to psychologically connect with. Having observed a significant amount of vulnerable people, with a variety of mental health issues and learning difficulties, reach out and connect with Arthur, it is highly encouraging to observe an artist, whose music really matters. Arthur’s musical ability is not only sensational, but meaningful, for so many vulnerable individuals. Arthur deserves all the success he accomplishes.

    Arthur will, no doubt, ride out this ‘storm’ once again and the ‘tide’ will inevitably turn.

    Hoora for Sallie Axl… only one making any sense in the press, well done!! Although, James please realise that you are so much bigger than all this play ground stuff. Your music transcends any lies that are said about you. Your fans are what matter… we will stick by you always. Excellent tour by the way.

    Hey dude… keep your head, when all those around you are losing theirs.

    James’ family, friends, and fans know he’s a good guy and will all continue to support and stand by him. The trash the the media come up with about him doesn’t matter. He’s got a lot of talent, and it’s all about the music he makes. Team James Arthur.
