The ex Pussycat Dolls singer is annoyed with Simon Cowell
We'd like to lay claim to many inventions; the wheel, electricity, the internet, the sandwich toaster... and those amazing things you can get that chop your food up into teeny tiny pieces with one swift press, just to name just a few.
This reminds us of Romy and Michelle's High School Reunion where they said they invented post-its.
"Simon has me to thank for putting One Direction together," Nicole told The Sun.
"But I don't get any credit.
"I won't be getting a cut of the money they make him."
To be honest, we don't have a clue what went on behind closed sparkly doors at X Factor HQ when Nicole was guest judging, so she may well have decided to put One Direction together all on her own, and now Simon's pretending it was all his idea.
But then, it could be like when our mate Lizzie tells us to go shopping, and we say 'No we've got no money', and then think about shopping allll day and suggest it again later as if it was our idea all along.
We like to think they'll settle this in a televised arm wrestle. Nicole's pretty sassy so she'd stand a pretty good chance.
What do you reckon?
