X Factor 2012: Kelly Rowland wouldn’t come back because Tulisa did!
Insiders say that the Destinys Child star was weighing up her options and considering sitting on the judging panel for a second year, however when she heard that it would mean sitting beside the N-Dubz star for another half a year, she decided that all the money just wasn’t worth it!
An ITV source told Heat magazine that Tulisa’s confirmation was the straw that broke Kelly’s back, saying:
‘Kelly had mixed feelings about coming back to The X Factor in the first place, partly because she wants to be in the US and concentrate on her career there.’
‘But when she heard that Tulisa had been confirmed as a judge, it made up her mind that it was right for her to exit the show. It’s no secret that Kelly never really got on with Tulisa.’
Things got frosty between the two ladies, when Tulisa called Misha B a bully on last year’s series of the ITV show. They pretended to make up after the incident, however many backstage sources say things were never the same between the only two females on the panel.
‘Kelly completely fell out with Tulisa,’ the source added, ‘Since then there’s been absolutely no contact with the two. She’s been telling friends that she feels sorry for whoever has to sit next to Tulisa.’
The source also claimed that Simon Cowell wasn’t offering Kelly enough money for a second series and that she wasn’t being granted permission to fly back and forward to America, while she worked on her US music career.
One of the stars tipped to be replacing Kelly, when the X Factor auditions start later this month, is former show judge Dannii Minogue and the source said bosses are so keen to have her back onboard, that they are willing to work around her commitments on Australia’s Got Talent.
‘Producers are desperate to get Dannii back,’ they concluded.
Would you be glad to see Dannii back, or who would you like to replace Kelly? Leave your comments below…
