[WATCH] Simon Cowell Punches X Factor Hopeful Caitlyn Vanbeck

Yes, everyone is blowing this out of proportion, but Simon Cowell hit Caitlyn Vanbeck right in the face. The 50-year-old judge accidentally punched the hopeful in the face as he gave his final six a group hug. But the 18-year-old from Edinburgh didn’t seem too worried about it, joking that she might “press charges”. When asked the question, she responded: “Yeah, maybe. He’s got a lot of money.”

The video clip was revealed on ITV2’s The Xtra Factor and showed the judge hit the singer in the face with his fist as he hugged the other contestants, Emily Middlemas, 17, Olivia Garcia, 16, Soheila Clifford, 18, Kayleigh Marie Morgan, 19 and Gifty Louise, 20. Some fans were displeased with Simon Cowell earlier in the night after they mistook a comment he made about Caitlyn for calling her fat. This followed her beautiful cover of Rise Up by Andra Day, which brought Nicole Scherzinger to tears.
