Katie Waissel is said to have smuggled in a bottle of Whiskey and gotten very drunk backstage at the X Factor this weekend.
The Daily Star reports that the hammered singer hit out at her fellow contestants, complaining that none of them were facing the negative press she has been receiving.
The newspaper reports that the 24-year-old said:
“I’m the f**king best singer here. I’ve had to put up with s**t on this show. Everyone else has got it f**king easy.”
A source told the paper: “Katie was as p*ssed as a fart. She smuggled the bottle in. She was steaming.”
“Cheryl missed the drama with the drink but she is furious,” the insider added.
“She called Katie a drama queen on telly on Saturday and said she liked that aspect of her, but now she is getting sick of it.
“At the start of the contest people felt sorry for her over the negative press she got, but as the weeks have gone on they realised they were played like fools by her.”
“She is a manipulative little madam and everything that happens to her happens for a reason – to get publicity. She pretended to be horrified about a story about her and Matt having a romp and yet it turns out to be fake and she helped to leak it.”
“Her fainting fits are also now becoming a little too regular. And now she is getting drunk, does she really think the public will sympathise with her if she makes out she is turning to booze to cope?”
“It’s a joke. She thinks this is ‘The Katie Show’. It isn’t. Every week she is getting more desperate and more hated.”
A spokesperson for the show said: “Katie is taking the competition seriously and is focusing on her performances.”
