Sharon Osbourne quits 'The X Factor' after spat with Dannii Minogue

UPI News Service, 10/22/2007 

Sharon Osbourne reportedly quit her gig as judge on the British television talent contest "The X Factor" after a preshow spat with fellow panelist Dannii Minogue.

Osbourne quit live on Saturday night's show.

Before the show, Osbourne visited Minogue's dressing room and allegedly launched a "verbal attack" on her, The Daily Mail reported Monday

"Dannii was crying so badly she had to have her makeup redone three times. All of Sharon's frustrations came out. Dannii tried to keep calm, but there's not much you can do when Sharon is at full throttle. She's been jealous of Dannii getting all the attention and publicity ever since she was brought on to the show," a source told The Sun newspaper.

There was no sign of the fight when the first live results show began Saturday. However, Osbourne later walked off, stating, "I'm out, gone."

The Daily Mail cited sources who said Osbourne's decision to quit the show may also have stemmed from the fact the acts she has championed were not popular with voters.

A spokeswoman for the ITV1 show said, "We've not heard from her, and we don't know if she's going to be back."
