Boy George makes Paloma Faith cry
Boy George made Paloma Faith upset when he told her she was "bitchy and rude" during the Manchester auditions of 'The Voice'.
Boy George reduced Paloma Faith to tears on 'The Voice'.
The 'Karma Chameleon' singer and the 'Changing' crooner - who were both announced as new coaches on the talent shoe earlier this year - reportedly came to verbal blows after they battled for the same singer to be on their team during the Manchester auditions earlier this week.
Boy George is reported as saying: "You said you weren't going to be bitchy and you're being bitchy.
"You've probably got PMT or something, you were extremely rude."
Turning to the contestant, he added: "If you choose Paloma she will probably fall asleep while you sing."
A furious Paloma hit back when he crossed a line by saying that unlike her, he's had a number 1 hit in America.
According to the Daily Mirror newspaper, she responded: "I am really happy with what I have done and continue to progress, maybe I haven't had as long in the game as George but hopefully one day I will. When I put my mind to something then I will win."
To try and make the situation less tense she started pulling silly faces at George, but he said: "Don't give it if you can't take it.".
A spokesman has confirmed the incident took place and said the judges' competitiveness is bound to come out and things will naturally get heated.
He commented: "All four coaches are fighting hard for the best talent on their teams. Competition and banter maybe lively on camera but professional rivalry is left at the studio door. We think viewers are going to love the genuine passion that our new line up brings to 'The Voice' 2016."
'The Voice' will be screened early next year.
