It seems as if Simon Cowell wasn’t the only one upset with judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger's decisions to eliminate Drew Ryniewicz from the X Factor competition on Thursday night. According to new reports, the ladies received some very threatening messages following the show.

TMZ reports that Paula and Nicole were sent hostile notes from angry fans on Facebook and Twitter, bashing the mentors for saying goodbye to the 14-year-old star.

Some of the messages even went as far as to wish death upon the judges for their choice, which sources at TMZ say really stunned the women.

Drew and Astro were sent packing on Thursday, leaving five remaining contestants on the FOX show.
