Rumours have been circulating lately that Dannii Minogue‘s future as an X Factor judge is still uncertain as she still hasn’t signed her contract, even though The X Factor auditions have already kicked off.
Although Simon Cowell predicted a few months ago that the Australian judge would return for another series, negotiations over her contract have ground to a halt, sparking rumours that she is still undecided.
An insider at the ITV1 show has revealed that Dannii felt she was “bullied” last year after receiving a lot of negative press over rumours about her relationship with Cheryl Cole were hard to cope with.
“It was tough for Dannii last year and she got a lot of negative press. A person can only take so much before asking, ‘Is it really worth it?‘” They told a national tabloid. “Dannii felt bullied by Sharon during her first series and that was tough, so she was looking forward to Cheryl joining the team last year.“
“But that became a nightmare too when the rumour mill went into overdrive with stories about the two of them competing against each other for Simon Cowell’s attention. Simon is being patient so far, but she can’t leave it too much longer.“
Girls Aloud babe Cheryl Cole has already been confirmed and signed as returning to this years X Factor, with her salary rising from £750,000 to a whopping £1.1 million. Cheryl Cole seems to have the looks, the talent and the money. Life is so unfair!!
