“X Factor” Host Storms Off “Piers Morgan Tonight”

For the record, "X Factor" host Steve Jones is not one to kill and tell.

At least that's one thing talk show host Piers Morgan learned about the Welsh former model before he stormed off the set of his CNN show "Piers Morgan Tonight." Apparently, Jones was less than willing to discuss his alleged playboy status and his rumored attachments to the likes of "Heroes" star Hayden Panettiere, "Baywatch" bombshell Pamela Anderson, and "X-Men" star Halle Berry.

When pressed for juicy details, Jones walked out. Later, he took to Twitter to defend his actions.

"For the record I'm not ashamed to admit I stormed off @piersmorgan tonight," wrote Jones. "His line of questing was highly offensive. You judge #thisfriday."

Morgan, however, tweeted an entirely different version of events. When asked by a fan who Steve Jones was, Morgan wrote: "No idea...Had him thrown off my set yesterday for lewd conduct."

So did Jones bail or was he tossed? Looks like we'll have to wait and see.
