X Factor's Honey G and Nicole Scherzinger share the same management agency, it has been claimed.
Reports this week have revealed that Honey G and The X Factor judge are both represented by the same company.
According to The Sun newspaper, Nicole and Honey are looked after by the Creative Artists Agency.
The CAA has a long list of A-list clients which range from global superstars including Brad Pitt and Tom Cruise to Will Smith and Meryl Streep.
And now they also have a new genuine urban music artist on their books.
"Honey didn’t have any professional representation until she got to Judges’ Houses," a source told The Sun newspaper. "Then suddenly she’s represented by CAA, who also look after previous X Factor winners and some of the world’s biggest artists?
“It just doesn’t make sense. It looks dodgy.”
However a spokesperson for the X Factor downplayed the connection.
A spokesperson pointed out that the CAA are in fact looking after all the contestants' bookings following the show, including next year's X Factor tour.
They said: "CAA are appointed to represent the contestants for live bookings once they leave the competition."
The X Factor 2016 is back Saturday and Sunday night on ITV at 8PM.
