X Factor 2012: MK1′s Sim denies flipping his finger at Nicole Scherzinger (VIDEO)
MK1 singer Sim has denied reports that he flipped his finger at Nicole Scherzinger on the X Factor this evening.
It’s fair to say that the former Pussycat Dolls star was less than complimentary about the group’s performance on the second live show of the series and after they sang ‘I Want You Back’, the brunette beauty blasted:
“I’m sorry, I didn’t feel it this week…. I felt like you were a little out of your element. The rapping was good but I expect so much from you all. Next week I want to see something different.”
Eagle eyed viewers on Twitter noticed that as Nicole was speaking, Sim appeared to be flipping the birdy at her, which definitely caused some amusement on the micro blogging website.
However, the rapper has insisted that he was just ‘holding’ his mic and did not intend to make a rude gesture to the panelist. He told Unreality TV:
“That’s ludicrous I was just holding the microphone. I love Nicole!”
You can be the judge of whether or not he’s telling the truth yourself, by watching the video below.
