Former X Factor New Zealand judges Natalia Killsand her hubby Willy Moon were both fired from the reality show for bullying contestant Joe Irvine in very harsh ways — none of their comments were there to help and improve Joe in the future…
They were just straight up hurtful.
But the two have finally each released separate apology statements! Though, it does sound like they released them because they're tired of the bad publicity — instead of truly seeing the error in their ways.
Natalia took to Twitterlast Wednesday night with a caption that said "at last! I am relieved that I'm finally able to break the silence… xoxo" before revealing a statement that read:
Former X Factor New Zealand judges Natalia Killsand Willy Moon were recently booted off the show for some troubling comments they made to one of the contestants recently that many thought crossed the line into bullying territory.
But the married couple are apparently not believing they did anything really all that wrong and Kills has said as much! And her latest comments seem to want to put all of this WAY behind her!
They didn't talk to any media when they arrived, and quickly made their way through the check-in for their 10:45pm flight.
But the bigger news is that Natalia seems to have been dropped from her label CherryTree Records. Her banner, which used to be prominently displayed on the site, is no longer there. We're waiting on official word, though!
Oh, and no new judges have been announced by the showyet.
After the contestant received cold and disparaging feedback from judge Natalia Kills bearing his resemblance to her husband and fellow judge Willy Moon, many fans reached out to Irvine showing their support.
But the love didn't stop there! Singer Lorde showed her support to the aspiring singer by sending him a handwritten letter and some yummy cupcakes:
TheX Factorgirl band's debut album Reflection is out now, so to celebrate, Simon sat down with us to chat exclusively about working with the girls, how famous he thinks they're going to be, and what his favorite song off the new album is.
And to be honest, his favorite is totally our fav too!
