The X Factor finalists have spoken and have more or less confirmed that Christopher Maloney has been telling some porkie pies on Twitter.
The former X Factor finalist, who finished in third place on Saturday’s show is said to have kicked off big style at the final rehearsals yesterday over the group performance and his tiny role and insiders claimed that he ranted and raved and used some very abusive language in an altercation with Carolynne Poole.
The official line from the ITV team was that he ‘no longer wanted’ to be part of the show, but apparently the Liverpudlian showed up again later last night, asking to go on stage and when he was told that the performance was already underway and his line had been performed he stormed off again and vented his anger on twitter instead.
After he accused Carolynne of being ‘bitter’ because she was eliminated in week one, she admitted to heat that she hadn’t yet seen his message but was ‘disappointed’ in his behaviour. She explained:
“I’ve not had a chance to look on Twitter. I’ll have a look now. I’m really disappointed actually. I was really upset earlier. I just don’t want to bring any embarrassment to Gary, that’s all.”
Union J had previously stuck up for Chris and even backed him to win the show at one point. However last night Jaymi Hensley said that he was also upset by his conduct over the final weekend and added:
“I was very disappointed. I’ve stuck up for Chris a lot this series, understood him and had a good relationship, but I was a bit disappointed.”
Rylan wasn’t holding back either and he insisted that everything being said about Chris – the diva claims, the reports that he was behaving abusively and throwing his weight around – were true.
“I’m not going to sit here and talk about Chris Maloney but everything that is being said is right. At the end of the day I’ve ended this series on a high, started the same person I finished and that’s what I’m proud of. Some people get too big for their boots – that’s entirely up to them.”
Chris is still insisting that he was just sick and that’s why he wasn’t on stage last night. He tweeted this morning:
“good morning guys, still got a really bad chest infection. :-X still on antibiotics. love u all thank u so much 4 all ur love and support xx”
