Christopher Maloney claims he is being victimised by his fellow 'X Factor' contestants and the judges, especially Louis Walsh
Christopher Maloney feels bullied by the 'X Factor' judges.
The Liverpool-born singer thinks he is being deliberately targeted by the ITV1 competition's judges and his fellow contestants after Louis Walsh branded him a "diva" and axed acts Carolynne Poole and MK1 claimed he is faking his nerves on stage.
Christopher told The Daily Star newspaper: "I feel I'm being bullied. This is getting out of control and it has to stop. I came into this contest to sing yet I'm spending all my time being battered.
"Louis started it. He did the same with Misha B last year, calling her a bully... I thought these people were my friends."
The 34-year-old singing hopeful is being inundated by hurtful messages on Twitter and feels the only person who is on his side is his mentor Gary Barlow.
However, it was recently revealed by a show insider that the Scouser could be leading the votes every week despite his bad press.
Eliminated MK1 singer Charlie Rundle lashed out at Christopher and claimed he was constantly throwing hissy fits if he didn't get his own way and was desperate to get noticed by the papers.
She recently said: "Chris surviving was a bit of a shocker. Chris got really lucky. He is the biggest diva. Some people don't think they have much of a chance to sustain a career afterwards so they will do other things to try and keep themselves in the public eye.
"If there's not a drink around, or he doesn't get his food on time or go home in the right taxi then it's a bit of a nightmare."
