X Factor judge Nicole Scherzinger signs The Voice's Will.i.am for new album

Nicole Scherzinger (X Factor 2012)Nicole Scherzinger has apparently risked the wrath of her X Factor boss Simon Cowell by signing up The Voice UK coach Will.i.am as a producer on her new album!

According to The Sun, the Black Eyed Peas frontman started working on tracks shortly before Nicole became a full-time X Factor UK judge.

But the news may not sit well with Simon, whose other show Britain's Got Talent went to 'war' with the rival BBC talent contest earlier this year.

In March, Will slammed The X Factor, stating: "It's like they put them out, juice them, juice them, juice them, and give people something to watch on TV."

A source told the newspaper: "She knows it might not go down well with her boss but she’s not bothered by all the politics. Will is a great producer and she’s dying to work with him again."

Will previously produced and featured on Nicole's top 20 single 'Baby Love', and also teamed up with her former band the Pussycat Dolls for number 2 single 'Beep'.
