After yesterday’s news that Katie Waissel and Matt Cardle were caught in bed together, Matt Cardle has hit out at the claims by saying that Katie Waissel has been using him to raise her own popularity.
When the news story broke in the News of the World yesterday, Matt Cardle was said to be furious. He claimed that they were only sharing a bed to watch a DVD, not because they had been playing any risqué games and getting carried away.
Cardle apparently yelled at Katie, “What do you think you’re doing? We were only watching TV – now it looks like we’re an item. I’ve just come out of a relationship and I’m not about to get into another right now. Especially not with you. You’re not my type. Stop making this stuff up. You’ve humiliated me and you won’t have done yourself any favours.”
A source claimed that Katie then spent the rest of the day in tears after his outburst.
In fairness to Katie Waissel, it might be hard to blame her for what is written in the papers. The”X Factor” insiders who are “leaking” these stories are more to blame for it than anyone else. That’s not to say that Waissel didn’t know what she was doing by burrowing herself in Matt’s room with him, but she isn’t solely responsible for whether the tabloids print a story.
With Matt being one of the favourites to win this year’s competition, Katie Waissel being associated with him may not have done her a lot of favours anyway. In reality, girls who become linked with men who are popular with the ladies will ultimately find themselves losing popularity even more quickly than before.
It’s only Monday and tales from the “X Factor” house are already going crazy – it will be interesting to see what the rest of the week brings!
