Tulisa Contostavlos has reportedly infuriated 'X Factor' bosses by staging late-night parties in her dressing room
Tulisa Contostavlos has reportedly annoyed 'X Factor' bosses over her late-night dressing room parties.
The 'Young' hitmaker has been smoking in her room and allowing her friends to hang out with her in the space until late, angering studio staff who can't close the building until she leaves.
A source said: "It's just not very professional. She's smoking in her dressing room in the breaks and it's full of her chavvy pals all drinking from her minibar.
"When they won't leave it means the security staff are stuck there waiting to lock up."
Show bosses are said to be particularly angry as they are looking to the judges - Tulisa, Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Nicole Scherzinger - to set a good example to the contestants.
The source added to The Sun newspaper: "How can we expect the contestants to behave when the judges don't?"
Earlier this week, Rylan Clark and Lucy Spraggan were moved from the contestants' base at the luxury Corinthia Hotel in central London following their outrageious antics on a boozy night out and it has now emerged that hotel chiefs have urged 'X Factor' bosses to speak to the other finalists about their behaviour - or move them elsewhere.
There have reportedly been complaints about loud music, a boy band member was spotted running naked through a corridor and security staff were infuriated when one act encouraged fans to sneak into the building.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "We've been told in no uncertain terms to get control of the contestants or move them out. This is a wake-up call."
