The Voice UK 2013: Jessie J's 'backstage tantrums' worry bosses

Jessie J (The Voice UK)

Jessie J has reportely been causing a stir backstage on The Voice 2013.

For a second year in a row, Jessie has been targeted with claims of being a diva backstage on the BBC one show.

According to the Daily Star, Jessie J's behind the scenes 'tantrums' are a worry to bosses ahead of the live shows in the summer.

The tabloid claims that Jessie "caused chaos" during the recording of auditions and battle rounds by taking breaks for massages and once even pretended to faint after filming over ran (we can't think why...)

A supposed source told the newspaper: “We’re already worried about ratings anyway, with Takeaway and BGT on the horizon.

“Now there’s Jessie. She’s an amazing talent, but a bit of a loose cannon.”

However a BBC source told the newspaper: “Jessie was simply joking about between filming to try and amuse the other coaches.

Tom wasn’t fooled, but Danny fell for it.”

Speaking to us earlier this year, Jessie J brushed off such criticisms.

“I don’t think there’s ever been any show on TV where a girl hasn’t had the diva stamp. I see it as some sort of compliment because the original divas were the Shirley Basseys, the Whitney Houstons,” she explained.

The 25-year-old added: “I would never ever want anyone to think that’s how I am. Because I’m not. I’m the complete opposite.

“I have eight people in my team – not 50, which is what was said in the papers. But you can’t win, I’ve realised that it happens to women.”
