Kimberley Walsh hits out at Louis Walsh: 'He's attention seeking'


Poor Louis Walsh, Girls Aloud singer Kimberley Walsh has slammed the music manager as ‘attention seeking’ after the comments he made about Cheryl Fernandez-Versini.

It comes after Louis branded his fellow X Factor judge as “lazy” and “irrelevant” but Kimberly has now had her own say.

“Louis will say whatever it takes to get him in the press and nothing surprises me. I don’t really have much time for him. I don’t owe him anything,” she said.

The Mayo man managed Girls Aloud when they kicked off their career in 2002 but it seems friendships with band members have dissolved.

“If you have to be around him, you can get along with him, but if you don’t have to see him then it’s probably preferable.

It’s all attention-seeking, so you have to let it go over your head. He’d turn on anyone at any time if it meant it got him into the press,” she told Fabulous magazine.

The 33-year-old singer slammed Louis and all his years of graft within the music industry, where he has produced successful bands such as Boyzone, Westlife and more recently HomeTown.

“He was just Simon’s yes man. He did as he was told if it kept him his seat on the panel,” Kimberely said.

“He doesn’t have any successful bands any more – X Factor was the only thing that was keeping him out there, so hopefully there won’t be any interest in what he’s got to say now,” she harshly claimed.

But with his Irish band Hometown constantly landing in the number one spot and Westlife star Shane Filan recently signing a big record deal, Louis is still top of his game.
