While Rowland's Away...tulisa Plays!
The X Factor war between the two female judges continues this week. Tulisa has recently been accused of "meddling" with Kelly Rowland’s act, Sophie. After the live shows on Sunday, which saw an awkwardly frosty atmosphere on the panel, the pressure became too much for Kelly...
She abruptly announced to her acts that she would be leaving for LA that night, and would return on Thursday. Her acts were inevitably surprised and feeling abandoned with the knowledge that they would be without a mentor for the majority of the week.
Tulisa felt sorry for the ladies and took them out to a club in Mayfair, London, to give them some girlie time. Sophie and Tulisa were seen in deep conversation over the night, even holding hands whilst Tulisa tipped the barmaid on how to up her game.
A source said: "Sophie has made no secret of the fact that she thinks Tulisa is brilliant and that she'd love her to be her mentor. She, like all Kelly's acts, was surprised to learn that she was going to be left high and dry this week. With Kelly over in LA, and the eight-hour time difference, she's decided Tulisa would be easier to talk to."
Kelly was apparently fuming when she heard the news of Tulisa’s involvement. However, Tulisa feels she deserved a taste of her own medicine after Kelly reportedly stormed into girl band Rhythmix’s room last week and started giving them advice, patronising the N-Dubz star.
