Our minds are completely and utterly blown!
Why was she so quick to escape from his clutches? Mostly because he was too controlling, it seems!
"I don't really speak to him anymore. I left his label a year and a half ago and I got my record deal here [in the US]… I would like to think he misses me now… I think he found me - I wouldn't say disobedient - but a little bit [difficult]. I have a specific thing I am reaching for, so I have my own idea of how I'm going to get it. We all have a specific thing in life that we want to get to and I don't deal very well with people having [control]."
Larry then asked her point blank if Simon was a "control freak".
"Yeah, I don't deal well with that."
Wowzers!!! We had no idea there was so much behind-the-scenes drama!
So who's repping her now? Would your minds blow again if we told you Simon's ex-X costar, L.A. Reid?!?!
We wonder if that move strained their relationship!
