'X Factor': Tamera Foster Accused Of Being 'A Backstage Diva'

She's got the big voice, and now Tamera Foster has been accused of having an attitude to match, according to 'X Factor' insiders.

The 16-year-old singing hopeful is reportedly a 'nightmare' to work with over the top diva demands who causes conflict behind-the-scenes.

A source told Reveal magazine: "Tamera is a great singer with good looks, but boy, does she know it.

"She’s over the top demanding and causes conflict behind the scenes wherever she goes: With stylists, producers and other contestants.

"I’ve worked with people like Tamera on the show before, so I know that if she’s like this at an early stage then she’s going to be a nightmare later on."

But Tamera - who has been at the centre of press reports about her bullying, shoplifting past - has hit back at the negative headlines.

She told Heat magazine: “I don’t think I’m any different from any other teenage girl, to be honest.

“Yeah, I have made mistakes in the past, but who hasn’t? It was a long time ago and I’ve really moved on from it.”

Meanwhile, another 'X Factor' source played down the stories that Tamera is a diva, telling Tellymix: “This story is totally wide off the mark – Tamera is always friendly and laid back in studio and production staff have even commented how impressed they are with her attitude and behaviour.”
