The Voice is going strong in its eighth season on NBC, but Christina Aguilera, its sole female judge and one of the original coaches, is reportedly creating havoc behind the scenes.
According to Radar Online, a disclosed source states that the 34-year old pop idol is a handful while the cameras are not filming her. She reportedly demands absurd requests and argues with the other judges behind the scene.
“Christina is such a terror to work with. She is frequently late and she doesn’t even seem to care or apologize for holding up the filming of the show.”
Yet, others think that the notion of Aguilera being a “diva” is ridiculous. Gossip Cop alleges that Radar Online doesn’t have connections to anyone from The Voice.
Additionally, since the current episodes of The Voice were filmed over three months ago, Aguilera is not presently on the set to create any drama. The coaches will return in April for the live shows. In the meantime, Aguilera is currently working on a guest role for the ABC series, Nashville.
Regardless, rumors of Aguilera’s alleged bad behavior are still following her. Another disclosed source states that the “Genie in a Bottle” singer is rude, saying that she should not return to the show at all if there were any other female judges.
Is Christina Aguilera really a conceited diva? Fans and supporters don’t think so. In fact, Aguilera recently worked on an album with fellow judge, Pharrell, and numerous supporters pointed out that if she was truly fighting with judges, there would be no way that Pharrell would collaborate with her on a full album.
Meanwhile, Aguilera seems to be taking the rumors in stride. She recently tweeted about Nick Jonas and his upcoming appearance on The Voice. He’s scheduled to team up with Aguilera as her adviser, and going by her tweets, she couldn’t be happier.
