It’s finally happened.
James Arthur has been unceremoniously ‘sacked by Simon Cowell‘ after releasing music about terrorism, according to The Sun.
Yep, it seems that mentioning bombing people was the straw that broke the proverbial camel’s back.
The song, which appears on the 26-year-old’s new EP, features the lyrics: “I’m gonna blow up your family like I’m a terrorist.”
Now, Syco were apparently not too impressed with this, even though James tweeted (as he likes to do so at times like this) to say it makes sense ‘in context’.
A source told The Sun on Sunday: “He has done himself no favours with his outbursts, it’s as if he’s almost willing Syco to drop him.
“Simon and Syco have been extremely loyal to James throughout his problems but there’s only so much they are prepared to put up with.
“It feels like the end of the road for him at Syco – James has been his own worst enemy.”
But James has since taken to Twitter to sort of deny the claims, although in a very ‘beating around the bush’ way.
He Tweeted: “As far as I know I am still with syco but I am exclusively signed to Sony. People look too deeply into the media circus. It’s about music.”
Yahoo Celebrity were told ‘no comment’ by James’ spokespeople on the matter.
It’s been a rough year for James, who has found himself in all sorts of trouble with his label from the off.
Endless word vomits on Twitter, gay slur scandals, kiss-and-tell stories and insulting Simon himself on Twitter – never a good idea to bad mouth the boss.
And while we are sure lots of you are saying ‘Well, it’s about blimmin’ time!’, we can’t help but feel a bit sorry for him…
