when a source claimed, "Paula went ballistic when she found out she wasn't back." The source added that Paula "told Simon that she felt used."
The insider also mentioned Paula wanted to "rant and rave on Twitter and online" after being fired but didn't because her entourage advised her to take the high road on the matter. That said, Paula released an official statement which indicated she and the producers were "communicating about this for a while now."
According to GossipCop,
the statement read, "I want nothing more than for The X Factor
to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful."
She also Tweeted
to further support the claim that she's not fuming over the recent firing. "Truth is, I parted ways amicably & remain friends w/ Fremantle, Fox & Simon." Paula added, "I know it's boring & under-whelming but hey, the truth usually is."
