Paula Abdul 'went ballistic' over 'X Factor' firing
Paula Abdul 'went ballistic' over 'X Factor' firing - Though she put on a happy face at the time, Paula Abdul was reportedly furious at her departure from "X Factor." The "New York Daily News" is reporting that when Abdul learned about boss Simon Cowell's decision to cut her from the show, she "went ballistic." Sources also tell the paper that Abdul screamed at Cowell and the show's producers upon hearing the news.
Ultimately, Abdul released a politely-worded statement confirming her exit from the show, but that was apparently only after intense persuasion from her team not to voice her true feelings on social platforms such as Twitter. Despite the professional drama, the insiders interviewed insist that Abdul and Cowell have remained close friends
