It is reported by The Sun that Cocozza had been bragging about taking cocaine to production staff.
Cocozza had broken one of the show's "golden rules" by allegedly discussing drug-taking behind the scenes.
The singer has been continually in the headlines since his first audition on The X Factor, where he flashed his buttocks to the judges to reveal the names of seven girls he slept with inked on his bum.
His confessions about bedding women, including Geordie Shore star Holly Hagan, and boasts over boozy nights out have caused a number of complaints about the ITV1 talent show.
