It sounds as though new X Factor judge Kelly Rowland has brought everything apart from the kitchen sink to the UK for the show, bringing a lot SEVEN assistants to help her out. The American diva's antics however haven't annoyed her fellow judges, with Louis Walsh, Gary Barlow and Tulisa finding it funny!
Kelly's seven person entourage is understood to be more than the all of the other panelists' staff put together - and far more than even Simon Cowell or Cheryl Cole ever had on the show!
During the auditions, which continue today in London Kelly had on hand two stylists, a hairdresser, a make-up artist, a personal assistant, a UK manager and a US manager.
A show source told the Daily Star: “When it comes to entourages, Kelly is the biggest diva we’ve ever had on the show.
“Even Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue, let alone Simon Cowell, had fewer people on their team.
“But Kelly is American and it’s quite normal in the States for stars to have huge entourages around them.”
The other judges don't seem concerned about Kelly's team however, with the source adding: “The other judges think it’s hilarious, especially Gary and Louis, who aren’t overly obsessed with looks and don’t have yes-men running around them with iPads and earpieces!”
The X Factor 2011 auditions continue today in London.
