X Factor: Will.i.am “furious” with Cher Lloyd, and Konnie Huq ditched from Xtra Factor

American pop star Will.i.am is said to be “furious” with his X Factor protégé Cher Lloyd after she reportedly told a tabloid newspaper that Cheryl Cole had ignored her ever since X Factor ended last year.

Cher apparently added that Cheryl was “more interested” in her potential US career than she was in helping her.

But today, The Sun states that Will “read the riot act” to the teenager when he read her remarks.

A source told the paper, “Will called Cher to tell her that she has got too big for her boots.

“He has put a lot of money and effort into recording new tracks for her.

“He can’t work with an immature baby and won’t support her if she throws it back in people’s faces.”

In other news, it’s being reported by the same paper that Konnie Huq has been ditched from the Xtra Factor, and therefore won’t be presenting it this year.

The paper states that the show’s bosses decided she wasn’t going to offered a renewal of her contract this year because she made too many “mistakes” last year.

However, there’s no news yet on who may be in line to replace her on the show.
