X Factor: Katie Waissel Slams Former Mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini AGAIN

Katie Waissel still has an arena full of bad blood with her former X Factor mentor Cheryl Fernandez-Versini judging by her latest rant, in which she brands Chezza a ‘horrible human being’.



The two allegedly fell out after Chez admitted in her autobiography, ‘Cheryl: My Story’, that she wasn’t sure about Katie when she first auditioned in 2010.

Then, in July, Katie called Cheryl a ‘prick’, telling Star magazine: “I think she’s just there for the money.

“People think that I have this huge thing against Cheryl. And granted, I do. I’m p*ssed off for various reasons. If you ask me, she’s fake as s**t.

“I just think there’s no substance to her. She can be very abrupt and rude. I don’t think she’s a very nice human.”

Now, Katie’s gone on another rant to Bella magazine - and it seems there’s no sign of a truce anytime soon.

She said: “I thought her behaviour was shady and unnecessary – she publicly slammed me in her book without saying anything to my face.

“But when she was my mentor, she kept trying to be my best friend and steal my cigarettes. I personally thought she was nasty, a horrible human and completely not genuine.

“Cheryl was charming when she had to be. But behind closed doors she was so different.”


She went on to criticise the way Cheryl acts, continuing: “Last year she tried to be really controversial. Cheryl’s very concerned about the public’s opinion.

“She wasn’t hugely popular last year and that’s why she’s gone down the nice road on this series. I feel after this she should really take a break.’
