2012 Miss Universe 1st runner-up Janine Tugonon and "The Script's" lead vocalist, Danny O'Donoghue
MANILA – Here's a bit of disconcerting news for 2012 Miss Universe 1st runner-up Janine Tugonon, who recently disclosed she broke up with her Filipino boyfriend after meeting "The Script's" lead vocalist, Danny O'Donoghue.
The frontman of the Irish band was recently told off for flirting with the contestants of the reality talent show “The Voice UK,” where O'Donoghue sits as one of the coaches.
According to a report of MTV UK, O’Donoghue made the audience of “The Voice” wait for 30 minutes while he was busy "flirting" with Irish singer Conor and the 18-year-old's sisters backstage.
In an article published last Friday, MTV UK cited a source of tabloid The Mirror, who said: "Some pretty girls caught Danny's eye backstage and he couldn't resist trying to impress them.
"He got so caught up with schmoozing, telling jokes and flirting that he conveniently 'forgot' all the about the competition and his duties."
"Producers were absolutely furious and told him his attention span wasn't up to scratch.
"It's expensive to hire a TV studio and he kept everyone waiting, including the other celeb mentors. He bleated that he'd 'lost track of time'," the source added.
The report said O’Donoghue also offended his fellow coach Jessie J when he tried to convince former “X Factor” star Lemuel Knight to join his team.
"I've been in the business 15, 16 years, The Script is just the tip of the iceberg. If you go into their teams, statistically you'd have a much worse chance of trying to get out of theirs than you would mine. I don't have any singer like you on my team," The Script vocalist reportedly said.
To which Jessie J reponded with: "That's not nice to put the singers down that you have taken through, who can sing like that."
On Tuesday, O’Donoghue and Tugonon became a hot Philippine topic after she admitted that she and Jaypee Santos, her boyfriend for over a year, have split.
The reason for the breakup is the beauty queen’s attraction to The Script's lead vocalist, who is reportedly in constant communication with Tugonon.
According to Tugonon, she met O'Donoghue during the band's meet and greet at the Araneta Coliseum, where they recently staged a concert.
