Tulisa: Kelly And I Don’t Speak
The X Factor judges are at war…
The feisty N-Dubz star opened up to The Mirror about the tension behind-the-scenes on the ITV show. "[Other] than what you see on air, Kelly hasn't spoken to me backstage. At the end of the day it is a competition and I'm getting on with it,” Tulisa said.
"She can talk to me and we can sort it out, but if she doesn't want to sort it out we don't have to talk. I'll just get on with it. I don't feel I have to make the first move or apologise because I have done nothing wrong."
The reason for the bad blood seems to be Tulisa accusing Misha Bryan of bullying members of Little Mix. But the I Need You singer said she had no regrets about criticising the 19-year-old for her actions.
"The truth is, on that day, that was the second incident I had had with [Little Mix] where they had come into my dressing room crying that morning over something Misha had said to them," Tulisa explained. "If I've got my acts, four young girls, coming to me in tears, I was wound up that day and I thought I am going to go out there and defend my acts."
She added: "I was a little bit surprised by Kelly's reaction but, do you know what, I'm not upset by it."
Gary Barlow has admitted there is a divide on the judging panel. “Maybe it’s a case of Kelly and me against Louis and Tulisa," he said, adding that he believed Tulisa was in the wrong when she confronted Misha on last week's show.
“I do like Kelly. I don’t know why Tulisa did it. But she is the kind of person who only does stuff she believes in. She’d probably defend it if you talk to her. Tulisa’s not one to back down."
This week’s show had a Halloween theme.
