Simon Cowell Has "Lost Control" According To Louis Walsh

It seems that Louis Walsh is none too impressed with the actions of One Direction in the last couple of weeks and has even gone so far as to say that Simon Cowell has ‘lost control’ of the boy band.

Louis, who is reportedly not returning to the judging panel on this year’s X Factor, has spoken out following Louis Tomlinson’s Twitter spat with Naughty Boy recently.


When asked what would happen if his own band Hometown did the same think an unimpressed Louis remarked:“I would have given them a good b**locking."

Louis thinks Simon has lost control of the lads. 

“They would know never to do anything like that. I would probably sack them.

“You don’t air your dirty laundry in public. Simon made this band. They would be nowhere without Simon Cowell.


“Let’s get that straight. He put them together, he pressed the buttons, he made it happen. Without Simon they’d be nothing,” he continued before adding that he thinks Simon has “lost control” of the lads.

“I think he’s lost control of them and that’s what happens with bands. They get too big and don’t listen to anybody and then it’s all over and then they think, ‘why didn’t we listen?’”
