Kelly Rowland is "unlikely to be asked back" to The X Factor UK, it has been claimed this week.
According to Star magazine, the US singer disappointed show bosses with her performance on the programme last year.
And friends of the Destiny's Child songstress have claimed that the stress over her future on the series has led her to suffer weight loss.
"She's been told that Simon was disappointed with her performance and felt she didn't connect with her acts," a source told the publication. "And he didn't like the way she was with Tulisa.
"She's feeling really stressed about her career now and it's showing in her weight."
One onlooker at a recent event in the US that Kelly attended added: "A lot of people didn't realise it was Kelly at first - she's very thin and her shoulders looked very bony."
