James Arthur has reportedly been sacked by Syco Records after he rapped about terrorism.

The controversial singer - who won 'The X Factor' UK in 2012 - is said to have been dropped by Simon Cowell's label following a foul-mouthed track, and insiders claimed he is ''his own worst enemy'' after a number of scandals and online rants.

A source told The Sun newspaper: ''It seems James is self-destructing. He has done himself no favours with his outbursts. It's as if he's almost willing Syco to drop him.

''Simon and Syco have been extremely loyal to James throughout his problems but there's only so much they are prepared to put up with.

''It feels like the end of the road for him at Syco. James has been his own worst enemy.''

In the new track entitled 'Follow the Leader', he rapped: ''Look at what you do to me, I'm crying over stupid s**t, you're such a f**king homophobe, wish I'd never let you in, to think that I was thinking maybe I should let you live, I'm gonna blow up your family like I'm a terrorist.''

The 'Impossible' hitmaker has responded to the criticism aimed at the track - which features on his new mixtape 'All The World's A Stage' - and insisted it is written from the point of view of a ''demented fan'', in a similar vein to Eminem's hit 'Stan'.

He wrote on Twitter: ''The song ''follow the leader'' from the mixtape is not promoting terrorism, it's a story, a reciting of a Stan Esc letter from a demented fan. (sic)''
