Tom Jones tells her to 'get a grip' over her tantrums

Tom Jones has taken ‘out of control’ Jessie J under his wing following a series of backstage strops.

The crooner, 71, has told her to ‘get a grip’ because she’s reportedly rubbing people up the wrong way.

Insiders say she’s been isolating herself from the other coaches, hiding away in her dressing room until just before the live broadcast and shunning a Saturday afternoon meeting to go through the running order, asking for the list to be left in her dressing room instead.

Jessie, 24, was also said to be ‘upset’ after hearing Will.i.am, 37, joke to Danny O’Donoghue, 31, that she’s ‘icy and unnatural’.

Jessie threw a big strop,’ says our source.

‘She’s been hiding out in her dressing room with her PA, manager and hairdresser.’

A show rep denied reports of Jessie‘s bad behaviour.

That’s despite the fact that she was called in for a ‘frank’ discussion after turning BBC Controller Danny Cohen away from her dressing room recently.

Now Tom‘s keeping an eye on her. ‘He realises that Jessie‘s just stressed, so he pulled her aside to say: “You have to get a grip,”‘ says our source.

‘He told her not to let the pressure destroy her.’
