Simon Cowell Calls For Crisis Talks With 'X Factor' Star James Arthur

‘X Factor’ judge Simon Cowell has had enough of James Arthur’s recent behaviour and decided it’s time he sat down with the singer to have a chat about what’s been going on lately.

James hasn’t exactly been on Simon’s good side since winning the show in 2012, choosing instead to become embroiled in a number of Twitter rows, sacked his PR on the social networking site and used a homophobic slur in a rap.

This isn't the first time James and Simon have publicly aired their complaints

Simon has now decided that it’s time to speak to James and dispense a few pieces of much-needed advice.

Si reckons James need to chill out - perhaps a nice cup of chamomile tea and some lavender drops on his pillow would help?

As much as we’d love to see this convo take place on ‘The Jeremy Kyle Show’, it’s more likely the showdown will happen behind closed doors, but that hasn’t stopped Simon from revealing what he plans to say to James.

This isn’t the first time Simon has been forced to intervene, as he previously told the Metro that the Middlesbrough-born singer should “just shut up and put the records out”.
