Is Heidi Klum upset Tyra Banks is the new “America’s Got Talent” host? A new report speculates there might be “catfights” and “major sparks” between the “bossy beauties.” Gossip Cop, however, knows the truth.

As Gossip Cop has reported, in February Nick Cannon quit “AGT” shortly before filming for the upcoming season was about to begin. With plenty of TV experience behind her, Banks was hired as the new host. Now a so-called “tattler” is claiming to the National Enquirer that Klum “isn’t thrilled” Banks is the show’s new emcee.

“Heidi was very close to Nick Cannon and isn’t happy he has been replaced,” contends the tabloid’s supposed source, “but what makes it worse is that he was replaced by Tyra.” The publication’s tipster goes on to note Klum and Banks have known each other since their early modeling days, and maintains “Tyra was always the most high maintenance.” The alleged “tattler” snipes, “Heidi thought she had seen the last of Miss Banks when she retired, but now she is back.”

This article, however, is very misleading. The gossip magazine makes it sound like Cannon was given the boot and Banks is stealing his spotlight. That’s not the case. Cannon chose to leave the NBC competition, and actually left producers scrambling to find a new host.

What’s more, though, is that Klum has shown nothing but utter excitement over working with Banks again. In fact, after the gig was announced, she tweeted an old photo of herself with Banks, writing, “I’m so excited to welcome our new @nbcagt host @tyrabanks to our #AGT family!” Klum went on to share a new snapshot (see above), exclaiming, “Reunited … and it feels so good . @tyrabanks.”

Klum also gushed about her old/new colleague in an “Entertainment Tonight” interview, saying about Banks, “She’s our new host, which is fabulous, because girls rule. Now we’re three girls against two boys, which is fabulous. It’s a lot of fun.”

She went on to acknowledge, “It’s definitely different to see her come onto the stage. We’re used to seeing Nick coming onto the stage, but I have to say, she fit right in there.” And the feeling is mutual. Banks also shared the above photo on Instagram with a celebratory message, saying, “Back at it again w/ BEAUTIFUL Angel @heidiklum.”

It’s quite obvious there’s no feud whatsoever between the two women, and the National Enquirer has nothing to back up its mean-spirited assertions. Says a Gossip Cop source, “It’s smooth-sailing so far” as the reality show films. The same can’t be said for the gossip magazine’s rocky reporting.
