We've been reporting on the ever-growing saga of X Factor NZ's judges Natalia Kills and Willy Moon, and their vicious critiques of contestant Joe Irvine.
Though Irvine made it to the next round on the show, the aforementioned judges didn't make the cut — both Kills and Moon have been fired from X Factor!
You'd think after all this backlash, the 28-year-old singer would be apologetic about her disparaging remarks, right?
WRONG! When asked if the artist regretted her harsh words, her spokesperson told The Mirror:
"No. She stands by what she said…[Natalia] just speaks from the heart and says what she feels. That's just how she is."

The singer took to Twitter, but didn't reference her getting axed from the hit show. Instead she thanked her fans (and shamelessly plugged her single):
As far as the singer's relationship with her label, a source confirmed with us:
"[…]Cherrytree Management as well as Natalia and Interscope parted ways months ago."
So, even though it wasn't related to the incident… it's true that she's no longer with them!
Ouch! If things get worse for Natalia, maybe she'll return to the show next season as a contestant!
