Let's hope Simon Cowell hasn't seen Liam Payne's latest Instagram from the studio, 'cos he's admitted he's 'bitter' the One Direction boys all seem to be signing solo record deals with other labels outside of the SYCO/Modest! bubble.
It's no secret Uncle Si's a bit pissed off 1D are doing their own thing without him after he hinted Liam Payne had been disloyal with his Capitol deal, and now he reckons he's 'getting the hint' he might not be involved in their future plans.
Chatting at the America's Got Talent finale, Simon said: "I hear so many things now, which they're doing, which I'm not involved with. It's a bit like 'I'm getting the hint you don't want me to come to the party. Sorry for making you famous.'"
Admitting he's a bit 'bitter' about the whole thing, he added: "Look, I'm not going to lie when I hear they're doing something, and they haven't approached me. You think, 'Well I would have liked you to,' but it's their choice. I'm not bitter. Much."
This all comes after he recently threw some shade Big Payno's way, saying: "We're in touch with them all. The great thing about all these boys - well not all of them but most of them - they are incredibly loyal and you don't always expect that.
"Niall, Harry Louis - amazing."
