After finishing third in the competition, sources told The Sun that Chris is arrived at rehearsals for the group song "clearly drunk".
Rumour has it Chris was upset that he had only been given one line to sing in the medley and was reportedly abusive to Carolynne Poole as well as producers.
Speaking to The Sun, a source said, "He showed up wanting to go on stage but they had to turn him away as they were already on stage and he missed the dress rehearsal."
However an X Factor spokesman said, "Chris decided he no longer wanted to be part of 'The X Factor Final' and has gone back to Liverpool."
Chris then took to Twitter to hit back at the claims he pulled out as he tweeted," thank u @TheXFactor had a wonderful Time. an amazing experience. love u all. sorry I had a sore throat an doctor signed me off. good luck x
"take no notice of crap in papers! I'm fine. it's just a final stretch of sensational headlines lol. whatever xx we know the truth xx
"yes I am being bullied! big time. there u go xx witch hunt xx
"thank u all so much for ur love help and support. thinking everyone wants a final dig. disgusting xx love u na nite xx (sic)"
Things got even more heated when Chris directed tweeted fellow contestant Carolynne Poole!
@carolynnepoole you'll do anything to get a headline! disgraceful! week one! bitter.— Christopher Maloney (@ChrisMaloney77) December 9, 2012
Carolynne refused to reply directly to Chris and instead wrote, "Sour grapes anyone??"
Lucy Spraggan also got involved to end to spat.
Whatever did happen, it seem the Christopher now risks losing his lucrative slot on the show's tour next year!
Do you think Chris is being bullied or reckon he was the one causing trouble?
