Irish judge Louis blasted Cheryl once again over the weekend, alleging to The Sun on Sunday that Cheryl would never allow Simon Cowell to hire Nicole.
He said: "Cheryl's got a job! Why won't she let Nicole be on the panel this year? Why won't she allow Simon to have Nicole on the panel? There's your f**king story. That's the truth. Because Nicole's good. She won't sign if Nicole signs."
So far, Cheryl has not responded.
Louis' war of words with Chezza kicked off last week when he was quoted as deeming her irrelevant and lazy. She responded via Twitter, saying Louis was obsessed with her and should focus on using his mouth for positivity.
"I never said Cheryl was irrelevant," said Louis. "I said she has no energy. I didn't say Cheryl was dull, I said she was low-energy. I don't care about it. I'm not on Twitter because I'm a loose cannon. I don't even look at it."
It's widely rumoured that Louis will NOT be returning to the X Factor judging panel this year, with Radio 1 Breakfast Show host Nick Grimshaw tipped to take his place.
