James – who won the X Factor in 2012 – has been embroiled in a couple of PR disasters over the past few months, including allegations of homophobia and some rather un-wise song lyrics.

One track penned by the singer reportedly included the line, “I am going to blow your family up like I am a terrorist”.

Speaking to his fans earlier, he thanked the label and said he was moving on, writing:

“Just to clear things up - I am no longer with Syco. I would like to thank all at the label for making a great record with me.”

“I now have to move on and do something different - the future is bright! #LOVE”

Simon Cowell has previously spoken out about the singer and his issues, saying a couple of months ago, “"I think James, unfortunately, has had so many issues with what he has done publicly – which is a real issue with me.”

Syco have yet to confirm the news.
