George Sampson 'falls out with Cowell'

Dancer George Sampson has said that he and Simon Cowell are not getting on.

Last year's Britain's Got Talent winner told The Sun that Cowell was more interested in his music acts, such as X Factor winners Alexandra Burke and Leona Lewis.

Sampson said: "Things aren't going so well with me and Simon. I suppose he's realised he can make more money out of other people.

"But I thought we were tight. I had one of the best-selling DVDs at the start of the year. We sold loads of copies."

He added: "But I've just found out that Simon's company takes 90% of the revenue. I get 10%. But I have to pay the production costs out of that.

"So I ended up owing them money. I'm not quite sure how it all works but that can't be fair, can it?"

Sampson was also reportedly upset that Cowell purchased a £6,000 Chanel handbag for Burke's 21st birthday, while he gave him £150 of shop vouchers for his own 16th in June.

He said: "All he got me was vouchers for Harrods. What am I supposed to buy in there?"
