With the X Factor USA live shows drawing closer, it has been reported by various outlets that Khloe Kardashian has officially become a host on the show, with Mario Lopez reportedly close to signing his deal to join the show.
However, there appears to be issues between Khloe and Mario even before the cameras have started rolling.
According to the National Enquirer, Khloe and the former Saved By The Bell actor have clashed with an insider claiming:
"The show hasn’t even started taping yet and the knives are out! Mario thinks Khloe is an airhead, and she thinks he’s a musclebound stuffed shirt. They’re already vying for the spotlight, and the real competition is going to be which one will be the bigger pain in the butt for X Factor brass when production starts.
"They both demanded exactly the same amount of air time, a completely even distribution of promotional commitments, the same dressing room trailers and the same down-to-the-penny wardrobe, hair and makeup budgets."
The insider also went on to allege that Mario tried to get approval of the clothes Khloe may wear on the show!
"Mario even tried to get approval of Khloe’s wardrobe because he’s terrified her cleavage is going to detract from his muscles!", the source said, before adding:
"Meanwhile, Mario is all about business. Plus, he always has to be the bigger star, so it infuriates him to have an equal role with someone as popular as Khloe. Mario and Khloe each feel they’ll be the new name draw for X Factor fans – and for the producers, the headaches have just begun.”
We heart Khloe!
