TMZ is reporting that X Factor USA manufactured group Lylas is scrambling to change their name, because they were threatened by Bruno Mars’ sisters of the same group name.
Bruno’s 4 female siblings make up the girl band, The Lylas … an R&B singing group that also happens to have a major modeling deal in the Philippines. Translation — they’re super hot.
Problem is … there’s another group of singing chicks calling themselves The Lylas … and they’re currently kicking ass on “X Factor.” In fact, Simon recently chose them to compete on his team.
When Bruno’s sisters found out about the other band of Lylas … they were pissed … and trashed the “X Factor” Lylas all over the web, claiming the new Lylas hijacked their name.
Sources connected to “X Factor” tell us … the contestants were shocked by the accusations … and insist they weren’t trying to hijack the name. They simply didn’t realize someone else had already laid claim to it.
Now, we’re told … the “X Factor” girls are getting ready to wave the white flag — with one source telling us they’re already brainstorming ideas for a new name.
