A source close to Zara told the Sun: “Sam suspected quite early on that something was going on between Zara and Brahim, and there was a big confrontation. She was spending increasing amounts of time with him backstage, and hanging around after hours.
“Sam found out and kicked off. He’s devastated about how things have turned out.”According to the publication, Fouradi has since left his job at Syco and is now understood to be living in Holland.

According to an events site, Brahim Fouradi was part of pop duo ‘Fouradi’ for seven years. Two years ago he started to work as an A&R manager for Sony Music Benelux. After being head of music at X-Factor NL he was asked by the UK to be A&R manager of Kelly Rowland’s category in the US version of The X-Factor. Because of this, he got an offer from Simon Cowell to start as the International A&R Manager of Syco.
On Made In Chelsea, Sam said that Zara had repeatedly slept with someone else whilst her other X Factor bandmates all went home to their partners. He said she was still liking his photos on Instagram and had “no remorse” for what she had done. Brahim Fouradi’s Instagram account appears to have been deleted since the scandal.
Whilst the show was airing, Zara posted to her Instagram story a quote which read: “Love wins, love always wins”.
