X Factor: Kelly Rowland Abandons Acts For Paris
Amelia Lily & Janet are apparently less than impress with their mentor...
The Destiny's Childstar will apparently contact them over the phone and hopes it will be enough to see them through to the semi-finals next weekend.
A source told the newspaper: "Kelly’s shooting her new video in Paris and there was no other time she could do it. She has a tight schedule with her own label to adhere to and had little say in the matter."
“Obviously she’s gutted she can’t spend more time with her artists but it couldn’t be helped. But it’s fair to say the girls – Janet and Amelia Lily in particular – are less than impressed."
They continued: "They feel like they’ve been left to go it alone and want more hands-on attention, especially when they seeTulisa being incredibly present with her group, Little Mix. To them, it feels as though Kelly is prioritising her solo career over theirs.”
It is thought that Rowland will be back in time for the final dress rehearsal, and has been "instrumental" when it comes to her acts' song choices.
The Mirror also reports that Kelly and fellow panelist Tulisa Contostavlos are still not talking, following their on-air spat, with an insider revealing: "When the cameras aren’t rolling, barely a word is exchanged between them."
They added: "There is no love lost. They have not had an off-air meaningful conversation in a month.”
