X Factor 2012: Simon Cowell says Tulisa Contostavlos is head judge – She hits back at haters

Simon Cowell has reached out to put an end to all the bickering between X Factor judges Gary Barlow and Louis Walsh.

It was reported this morning that the male stars were bickering between themselves, over who got to be head judge when the ITV show returns later this year.

On hearing that Louis had secured a contract for his ninth series on the talent show, Barlow tweeted:

“I hear there’s a lovely lad from Ireland joining me. Congrats Louis! One of these years you’ll be head judge.”

Insiders said that Walsh was furious with the teasing and that he was equally annoyed at Simon’s jibe about him proving himself as an ‘astute music manager.’

Cowell has tried to put an end to all the bickering and has told the boys that he is giving the head judge post to Tulisa, since she won with Little Mix last year.

He tweeted:

“I understand Louis & Gary are squabbling as to who is head judge..since @OfficialTulisa won last year, she is the reigning head judge.”

Meanwhile, after the difficult time she has had in her personal life recently, Tulisa has hit out at the haters via her Twitter page.

She wrote this afternoon:

Past few months I’ve had about 8 people create a whole scenario of beef with me in their imagination..i barely knew they existed#awkward…also neva seen or heard so much absolute shit about the ins n outs of my life, misquote’s or thoughts from myself..#justsayin..All good tho

Tulisa is currently preparing for her performance on Sunday night’s Britain’s Got Talent. She will be showcasing her debut solo single ‘Young’ on the ITV show and tweeted:

‘What a week, just in rehearsals 4 BGT! Reunited with my dancers! Weeeheeyy’
