Simon Fuller has announced he is in the process of sueing the US TV network Fox, seeking a credit and fees for the newly produced US version of The X Factor.
Simon Fuller has made the claim that Ruper Murdoch’s News Corporation and producers FremantleMedia North America have breached a contract signed in 2005.
Simon Fuller is the creator of American Idol, and he claims he was promised an executive producer credt on the rival show given his huge role in influencing TV talent shows of these types.
Fox and Fremantle are currently insisting that Simon Fuller "has not been hired, nor performed any duties" for the US X Factor so they will be taking this further. Its sure to be an episode all in itself
