Sharon Osbourne has reportedly hit out at Simon Cowell for bringing her into his new biography - and said she didn't want to be "dragged into his little world of debauchery".
According to the headline-grabbing book, by investigative journalist Tom Bower, former X Factor judge Sharon "exploded" with anger at the music mogul's secret affair with Dannii Minogue.
But Sharon told the Daily Mirror: "We all knew Simon and Dannii were seeing each other, it wasn't a secret. I don't know why he tried to hide it from everyone though - he'd already split from Terri (Seymour)."
The mum-of-three, who quit The X Factor in 2008 after reportedly clashing with Dannii, added: "Dannii wanted to be the mistress of Simon Cowell - and the mistress of X Factor."
Sharon also said she hadn't wanted anything to do with the new biography.
"How dare he bring me into it now? I don't want to be dragged into his little world of debauchery, thank you very much," she said.
"I get on absolutely fine with Simon - and he will be fine - but I am p***** off to be brought into it all again."
