Jones, who is currently hosting the U.S. version of Simon Cowell’s hit show The X Factor, shot a pre-recorded chat for CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight earlier this week (beg26Sep11).
However, the segment turned nasty when the former newspaper editor started quizzing Jones on his Lothario reputation, prompting the presenter to walk away mid-interview. The chat is due to air on Friday (30Sep11).
Jones, who previously dated Heroes star Hayden Panettiere, writes on his Twitter.com page, “For the record I’m not ashamed to admit I stormed off Piers Morgan tonight. His line of questing (sic) was highly offensive. You judge this Friday.”
However, fans were confused by the update after Morgan gave his own side of the story – insisting he was the one who called time on the interview.
Morgan writes, “Had him thrown off my set yesterday for lewd conduct.”
