X Factor star Katie Waissel is reportedly at war with mentor Cheryl Cole.

According to The Sun, the contestant is furious that Cheryl wants her to perform ‘The Bitch Is Back’ for tonight’s Elton John theme and took it as a personal insult. She has since insisted on singing ‘Saturday Night’s Alright (For Fighting)’.

She told the paper: “There were a couple of songs put forward to me. I liked the fighting spirit of the songs, but one goes a little too far. Do you know what? You can push things too far.”

A source added: “To say Katie is a diva is putting it mildly – she’s a complete nightmare. She is so rude to people and treats staff on the show like dirt. Cheryl has been livid with the way she’s been acting.

“She’s done her best to help her, but she still gets this rude backchat from her. And Katie isn’t honest with anyone. She fled to meet Amy Winehouse the other night and when we asked about it she just lied and said she didn’t.”

The report also claims that Waissel is unhappy with the amount of attention that Cole is giving to Cher Lloyd.

Cheryl Cole and Cher Lloyd are in dispute, according to reports, over what to call the aspiring X Factor singer.

Cheryl Cole and Cher Lloyd are in dispute, according to reports, over what to call the aspiring X Factor singer.

The Sun said that Cher, who impressed judges with her rendition of Shakespears Sister ballad Stay on Saturday night, wants to be known as Cher-L but that her mentor, Cheryl, feels the new name is too similar to her own.

A show insider told the newspaper: “Cher has already been called a mini-Cheryl and now she could end up with almost the same name.”

Music chiefs came up with the idea of using the name Cher-L, using the first letter of her last name to rebrand the 17-year-old rapper, after the ITV series ends.

The singer cannot use the name Cher because of the US star.

The source continued: “X Factor chiefs want Cher to change her name after the show to give her something a bit edgier and more fitting to her image.

“They don’t like her having two names and think she should have something a bit different. She can’t be known as Cher so the idea of Cher-L came up – but her mentor didn’t like it as it was so similar to her own name.

“Cher loves Cheryl and values her input and ideas but it doesn’t look like she’ll get her way on this one.”
