Chris Maloney (X Factor 2012)

X Factor hopefuls Rylan Clark and Christopher Maloney got into a fight over Kim Kardashian this week, it's been claimed.

It's been reported today that the pair clashed after they both wanted pictures with the US reality star.

Chris, Rylan and the other finalists all attended Kim and sister Kourtney's fashion launch in London on Thursday night.

However The Sun report that Rylan ended up "furious" with Chris after her barged in front of him to get a picture with Kim, before the American telly star left.

A source told the tabloid this morning: “Rylan is a massive fan of the Kardashians and was really looking forward to meeting them and having his picture taken.

“He was furious with Chris – calling him a ‘fame whore’ and slagging him off.”

The news follows James Arthur branding Chris a diva off camera.

Speaking ahead of tonight's latest live show, James revealed hat tensions behind the scenes had been high.

"I think Gary Barlow's picking on Rylan a little bit, a lot of it is probably for TV, but..." James revealed.

And quizzed on the atmosphere backstage, James claimed: "Chris is a diva."
