X Factor stars Union J have found themselves under threat of legal action from an ex manager.
The group were put together at judges' houses, formed from trio Triple J and failed soloist George Shelley.
But it's claimed that all three members of the original group - Josh, Jaymi and JJ - were in another group prior to The X Factor.
The boys were a part of five piece boyband Rewind.
Speaking to The Sun, Julian White claims that the trio ditched him for the X Factor after beginning to be noticed as part of Rewind.
“I made these lads and we signed an agreement for a contract. Next thing I know they’ve changed their name to Triple J and auditioned for X Factor with Blair as their manager," he told the newspaper today. “They got all aggressive when I asked them why they’d gone.
"But I’ve consulted my lawyer and as soon as they start earning I’m coming after them for five per cent of their earnings.
“I’m told I have a very good case.”
However a "pal" of the group's hit back, telling the tabloid: “He managed them before George joined the group, so they’re not even the same band when he managed them.”
Union J's new manager added: "Union J are confident that the ex-manager of Triple J has no contractual claims over the band.”
The X Factor 2012 continues this Saturday night with a spooky Halloween themed episode as the remaining ten contestants perform live once again.
The latest results show follows on Sunday when one more act will be given the boot.
