Uh-oh! It sounds like someone can dish it out, but can't take it in return!
Those watching The Voice this season may have noticed that Christina Aguilera has come off especially hard on her former Mickey Mouse Club co-star, Tony Lucca, during the singing competition, but according to sources, a clever attempt at retaliation from he and his mentor, Adam Levine, was disrupted by the singer…and ultimately caused a MASSIVE blow-out on set that left production HALTED yesterday!
Apparently, the Maroon 5 singer and Tony decided that for the finale he would be performing the Jay-Z classic 99 Problems as a thinly veiled dig against Xtina, but when she found out, she forced NBC to pull the plug on the entire idea!
And as you can imagine, this set Adam off in one helluva nasty way, and he ended up locking himself in his trailer instead of rehearsing Free Your Mind with the other judges!
The insider explains:
"Christina found out that Adam planned to have his finalist, Tony Lucca, sing 99 Problems by Jay-Z, in which he'll sing 'I've got 99 problems but a bitch ain't one.' Adam and Tony wanted to call Christina out as a bitch but make it clear she's not a problem for Tony. It was completely aimed at her. It was Adam’s idea, but Tony absolutely loved it. Christina thought it was ridiculous. She was highly offended. It ended up that NBC told Adam to change 'bitch' in the song's lyrics to 'chick.' He said changing the song would be a death sentence. Adam went right up to Christina and said 'you’re the biggest f***ing c***.' Obviously Christina was appalled and hissed that Adam should be fired. She’s sick of being treated this way. Christina is so sick of Adam being looked at as the golden boy of the show. If America knew how disgusting he was, they would be appalled, she always says. Adam wouldn’t do anything until this gets figured out. He was being incredibly immature. By midday it wasn’t even confirmed that Adam would be going through with the coaches performance. It was that bad."
While it's definitely been clear since day one that the 'friendly' banter between those two on the series is anything but that, this is BAD!
And although it's ridiculous that Christina would go to such lengths just to avoid having her ego bruised on live television, we don't agree with Adam's very rude choice of words!
One thing is for certain, however - it's going to be one INNERESTING finale tonight!
Who KNOWS what will happen?! WE CAN'T WAIT!
What do U think? Team Xtina or team Adam?
