Louis Walsh may well have been telling the truth when he insisted there was nothing wrong with his friendship with Kelly Rowland. It is however a different story between Gary and Tulisa, with their relationship now at breaking point.
The pave clashed over some of the comments dished out at the weekend's live show, where Gary's act Frankie and Tulisa's act Nu Vibe went head to head in the bottom two, with Nu Vibe losing out.
“The honeymoon period is well and truly over,” a source blabbed to Star magazine this week. “Gary is not happy, and has not taken kindly to a few things Tulisa has said to him on the show. But she thinks he has been acting far too superior, and that he has no right to.”
The pair also argued over Tulisa referring to Gray as 'mental' and 'boring' during her comments.
The insider added: “It was tense between them after filming ended. They were snappy with each other and Gary was overheard saying he didn’t appreciate being called ‘mental’ on live television in front of millions of viewers. It seemed too personal.”
And the source revealed now neither of the pair were prepared to back down.
“Gary and Tulisa are both stubborn and competitive. So they were always going to clash on this show,” the insider added.
“Tulisa thinks Gary feels she is too young for her opinions to matter as much. She plans to show him she is just as knowledgeable as he is.”
