Paula And Some More X Factor Dramz

Paula UTA Dramz

Paula Abdul is refusing to pay her agents on the X Factor deal!

She's basing the claim that she doesn't have to pay the standard 10% because the deal was brought upon her past working relationship and friendship with Simon Cowell.

While that may be somewhat true, it turns out that both her manager and attorney stepped in to help negotiate the payment when things got down to the wire. That to us shows that UTA didn't really have much of anything to do with any of the process!

Plus, Paula presented UTA with a "take it or leave it" type of deal when it became apparent that Cowell was targeting her without any outside help besides their relationship. They would either forego commission, or not rep her anymore.

She means business!

Neither the agency or Paula's reps returned a comment either, so this is all we have to go on for now!

We suppose it all falls down to what kind of deal she signed with UTA and the specifics of that. From where we're standing, it looks like she might have some weight behind her argument — unless her deal with UTA covers a situation like this.

Do U think she should pay??

    Being a deadbeat is not a cool thing.



  2. 2

    NO commission for UTA … she got the gig based on her relationship with simon … cmon now … TeAm PAULA baby!!!



  3. 3

    This was planned when Paula left Idol. I called her and Simon on X-Factor a while ago so no she shouldn't pay. If they had nothing to do with the deal, which they didn't, why should they make money from it?



  4. 4

    Umm, no…I wouldn't pay my real-estate agent if I found and negotiated buying a home on my own.



  5. 5

    That picture made me smile. As much as I like Steven Tyler, I really miss Paula and Simon on AI.



  6. 6

    Why would she? They didn't do anything for her.



  7. 7

    I agree with her she shouldn't have too.



  8. 8

    WHy should she pay if they didn't help her? I say "GO GIRL!" If I were in her place, I wouldn't pay either.

    BTW … I love the picture. Simon and Paula together again. YAY!!!
