Carolynne felt compelled to tweet glamour model Maria after she claimed she recognised chimney sweep Kye from years ago.
Maria tweeted during the programme this weekend: “Is this boy called Kye? i swear he used to message me on facebook about 6 years ago haha #Graft."
Another girl went on to make a similar claim - at which point Carolynne decided to step in and stick up for her friend, who's also competing in the 'over 28s' category of the show.
Carolynne wrote: “You wish #giveitarest.”
The pair then reportedly exchanged a number of vicious messages, with Maria even taking a stab at Carolynne's recent marriage break up.
She wrote: “Obviously a reason she is single at her age.”
She added: “What is your problem... ? i dont understand why you keep tweeting me? your a very strnge person??”
Maria continued in another tweet: "When u actually support someone on xfactor then they tweet shit like that to u... shame thought she seemed a nice girl.. not the way to act when u want to be a serious artist is it!"Seems like someones gone big time already and she aint even anywhere near the best in the comp #MUG."
Carolynne hit back: "@MariaFowler classy young woman! Xxx" and tagged Kye in the post.
The singers are said to have become close during their time on X Factor, though they both insist they're just friends.
And last night, a friend of Kye's denied he'd ever messaged Maria.
Furthermore, Kye showed his support for Carolynne this morning: “@CarolynnePoole: Is just a mate of mine!. Pure and simples. She's a top top girl & a great singer!"
