Fired X-Factor judge Natalia Kills says she wishes Joe Irvine "all the best" despite her astonishing tirade that saw her and husband Willy Moon booted off the show.
Kills and Moon landed at Los Angeles Airport this afternoon, having been removed from the reality TV show following public outcry over their controversial comments on Sunday night's live screening.
Dressed in black and holding hands, they were followed by cameras through the terminal, with Kills speaking to the paparazzi at various stages.
"I would like to wish Joe Irvine and my boys' category all the best on the show," she said in footage screened by MTV.
They did not speak as they waited to fly out of Auckland last night, but were not so hesitant this time around.
"I feel like everyone needs to put the idea of it being a manufactured conspiracy theory behind them, there's really nothing to it.
"I love my husband with all of my heart, we'll stick together no matter what. There are many sides to this story and I am not about to get an entire industry in trouble that has been going on for years and years entertaining the masses, so thank you absolutely everyone for your support, thank you to all of my fans, thank you to my husband," she said.
When asked what they would do when they arrive at their destination, she replied "we're going home to make love and peace."
A social media storm ensued after Kills told Irvine on live television that he made her sick.
"It's disgusting, you make me sick, it's absolutely disgusting, you have no identity, I can't stand it, I'm ashamed to be here."
Moon supported his wife, adding Irvine's performance was "cheap and absurd" and he looked like "a serial killer".
