X Factor 2010: Katie Waissel's friends and family stand up for the singer as she is accused of fighting with 'super-diva' Cher Lloyd

They are two of the most promising contestants on The X Factor.

But behind closed doors, things aren't going so well between Katie Waissel and Cher Lloyd.

The pair, who are both in Cheryl Cole's girls group, are said to be fighting constantly, causing friction with other contestants on the show.

However, Katie Waissel's mother Diana has now come forward to defend her outspoken daughter, saying she has been left physically and emotionally weakened by the backstage drama.

And it's the intense rivalry between Katie and Cher, 17, which has really taken it's toll on the 24-year-old singer.

In an interview with this week's Heat magazine, out now, Diana explained: 'Katie’s not confrontational. She’s very diplomatic - if she was in a situation, she would walk away. She’s all about karma. She doesn’t like bad karma.

United front: The pair sang together in the group performance on Sunday night's results show

'But you’re talking about two different people: one’s 24 and one’s 17. I think you learn how to handle things in life the older you get.'

'Katie likes her time alone. She’ll be quite happy to go into her bedroom and shut the door – it gives her inspiration to write her music when she’s like that.'

And Katie's close friend Gabi Dee added to Reveal magazine, also out now: ''Katie's like Marmite - you either love her or hate her. The problem is, Katie is very confident and doesn't always see eye-to-eye with people, but she's also full of energy and great fun to hang out with.

Excited: Cher looked genuinely pleased when it was announced Katie was going through to next week's shows

'Behind closed doors, she's gutted by what people are saying. It's like they have created this caricature of her - the Katie I read about isn't the girl I know. But it's not making her want to pull out, she won't stop until she's famous. Singing is her absolute passion.'

This week, Katie has been accused of leaking a story about her and X Factor favourite Matt Cardle getting together to the newspapers in a bid to get more viewers to like her.

It has since transpired that the pair did share a bed - but only while they watched a DVD together.

Different styles: The pair have incredibly different vocal sounds and fashion styles

Matt is said to have accused Katie of leaking reports to the papers that they were having a secret affair, and has told her to 'stop making stuff up'.

'I've just come out of a relationship and I'm not about to get into another one right now,' he is reported to have said. 'Especially not with you. You're not my type.'

But Katie's mentor Cheryl Cole was quick to come forward to defend the singer, insisting she would never have leaked a story about herself in an attempt to increase her popularity.

She said: 'She wouldn’t do that. She is such a sweetheart and I think that’s beginning to show. I love our catch-ups in the dressing room.’

Controversial: Matt Cardle (left) and Liam Payne have been at the centre of romance rumours with Katie and Cher

Matt isn't the only one to be at the centre of romance rumours, as Cher was previously reported to have struck up a close friendship with One Direction singer Liam Payne.

However, Liam's mother has now come forward to deny the rumours, insisting the teenagers are 'just friends'.

She told New! magazine, available to buy now: 'There’s nothing in it. Liam has a connection with Cher because she’s a similar age and they’re from a similar part of the country.

'And he gave her a hug when she got through at Boot Camp, which was on film. It got blown out of proportion.'

Cher has also been at the centre of controversy surrounding the X Factor, with many criticising her 'diva-like behaviour'.

While Cher admitted she had thrown a tantrum over a stage outfit last week, it seems her attitude is causing some problems among her fellow contestants.
