'X Factor' rapper James Nti was left with no time to practice his Boot Camp audition - because he had been having sex with another contestant
'X Factor' hopeful James Nti failed to prepare for his Boot Camp audition - because he was sleeping with another contestant.
The rapper - also known as Clapz Shizzayne - admitted to sleeping with a girl from one of the groups, but honoured her wishes for him not to reveal her identity.
He said: "I didn't really rehearse because I had a friend come round.
"It wasn't what I expected it to be but she was decent, so I just kissed her and it developed into... you know what I'm saying.
"I promised I wouldn't say the name. She was really begging me, 'Please don't tell anyone. I don't want my parents to know'."
James picked up the female hopeful at a party thrown by show bosses in Liverpool and his antics caused "problems" for the day's auditions.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "All the contestants are told to be professional and focus on their audition but producers can't stop things like this happening. The fact he didn't have enough time to rehearse caused problems."
At his audition, James presented judge Tulisa Contostavlos with a rose and admitted: "I have a big crush on Tulisa."
And it seems he was in luck as the 'Young' hitmaker admitted she was flattered by his attention.
She told the other judges: "Guys, I'm not being funny, I'm a single girl right now and the honest truth is I'm not getting any love anywhere and Clapz right now is giving me that love."
But Gary Barlow warned her off, joking: "Careful... you'll get the Clapz off him."
