Tulisa Contostavlos has blasted Louis Walsh.
While the Irish music manager recently called his fellow 'X Factor' judge a "chav", the 'Young' singer hit out at Louis during filming, claiming he was out of touch with the music scene.
According to The Sun newspaper, she said: "I'm not any less educated in music just because I'm a newbie on the scene... I still deserve my spot on the panel.
"When was Westlife last number one? Because mine was a couple of weeks ago. Ha! Don't give me all that 'selling millions of records' rubbish. Because how long ago was that?"
While Louis insists he and Tulisa have a great relationship, he recently admitted he thought of her as a "chav in a tracksuit" when they first met and said she was out of her depth last year, despite winning the show in her debut season.
He said: "She is a bit rough round the edges and when they announced she was on the panel I was expecting a chav in a tracksuit - which is what we got - but she's a lot of fun. She thinks she's a bigger star than she actually is though.
" Last year Tulisa and Gary [Barlow] were thrown in at the deep end and we struggled a bit but this year they're back and they're stronger and I can't wait to find this year's star."
