One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
The claws are out on the X Factor, at least in the wardrobe department.
"They’ve been fighting nonstop. They bicker like crazy over who gets to wear the sexiest, most stylish outfits."
The source adds Paula's been giving Nicole "advice" and even convinced her to "switch out of a tight red top before one taping because she said it clashed with Nicole’s skin tone."
There was also another instance where Scherzy planned on wearing a short dress with a plunging neckline, but Paula told her that was a no go. Her reasoning? Their style shouldn’t appear too similar to the viewers.
