Kelly Rowland Leaves U.K. Version of ‘X Factor’ After Fight With Fellow Judge

Kelly Rowland had a fall out with fellow U.K. ‘X Factor’ judge Tulisa Contostavlos, sparking rumors that K Ro fled the country in anger after the fight. In the U.K., they refer to a fight as a “row,” so it would appear that K Ro had a “row” with Tulisa, after Tulisa accused one of Rowland’s charges of causing trouble backstage. Draaaaammmmmmaaaaaa!

However, the tiff is not the reason that the former Destiny’s Child star flew home to L.A. after a tense episode instead of staying in the country to work with her trio of contestants — Misha B, Janet Devlin and Sophie Habibis — for the next live show, according to The Daily Mail.

Rowland is not jumping ship, either. Her handlers have shot down the story that she split due to the clash. She simply had a pre-planned business trip and will head back across the pond on Thursday. Rowland’s rep said that “Kelly is not missing anything and will be in constant contact with the contestants by Skype and talking to them every day, and she is being sent MP3s of the songs.” So she is honoring her commitments to the show thanks to technology. This trip, according to her handlers, “has been in her diary for a long time.”

Since ‘X Factor’ is loaded with drama, even little things a judge like returning home for a quick business trip amidst a heated episode are magnified and presented as something more!
