X Factor news: James Arthur hasn't been dropped... yet

James Arthur (X Factor)

X Factor winner James Arthur hasn't been dropped... just yet.

The former X Factor champ was reportedly dropped from Simon Cowell’s Syco record label this week after the gaffe prone singer showcased songs that supposedly glamorised terrorism.

“It feels like the end of the road for him at Syco. James has been his own worst enemy,” a source told The Sun on Sunday newspaper at the weekend. “He has done himself no favours with his outbursts. It’s as if he’s almost willing Syco to drop him.

“Simon and Syco have been extremely loyal to James throughout his problems but there’s only so much they are prepared to put up with.”

Speaking at the press launch for Britain’s Got Talent yesterday, X Factor boss Simon insisted that the recent reports weren't true.

However things don't sound at all good for the singer, who won the show back in 2012 mentored by Nicole Scherzinger.

“He hasn’t been dropped. I haven’t phoned him yet," Simon said.

But he added that there would be a tough conversation to have with the controversial blabbermouth in the near future.

“You know what, I think him and I just need to sit down and have a conversation. A lot of what you read online isn’t true," he told reporters.

Simon added: “This silly business of ‘he said this’, ‘he said that’, it’s all nonsense, it really is. It just needs to calm down a bit.”
