It's not been a great week in London for new X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos so far. Not only has the youngster been battling a chest infection and been heckled by the audience, but now she's having to deal crazy auditionees. One winnable yesterday blasted the N-Dubz star as a "scumbag"!
According to The Sun, security staff at London's massive 20,000 capacity O2 Arena were forced to step in yesterday when 19-year-old George Gerasimou "squared up" and hurled abuse at Tulisa during his audition, where he performed Ne-Yo's hit 'Give Me Everything'.
"Why did you stop the music?" he asked when Tulisa raised her hand to the show's producers.
"I have heard enough," she replied.
However George then blasted: "You're just a scumbag from Camden replacing Cheryl on the panel."
While shaken, Tulisa stood her ground and told the yob: "Get back and stop invading my space," she added: "I am really proud of what I have achieved. If you don't like it, why did you come down today?"
An insider told the newspaper: "He really squared up to Tulisa. Staff had to intervene to tell him to get back on the stage. It was pretty hairy."
And it's not the first time George has appeared on the show.
He told Simon Cowell to "shut up" back in 2009 before chucking his microphone onto the floor. He said before his audition yesterday: "I'm here to redeem myself."
The X Factor 2011 auditions continue today in London and the good news for Tulisa is it's their last day in the city!
