X Factor's Tulisa planning move to LA next year!

Tulisa Contostavlos

X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos is reportedly considering a move to LA if she doesn't return as a judge on the show this year.

According to Star magazine, Tulisa doesn't wish to break ties with the UK just yet, but is enjoying life on the other side of the Atlantic.

The N-Dubz star has been photographed sunning herself in LA and Miami over the past two months, where she’s been to finish work on her album - and get over her ex!

"Tulisa has absolutely loved her time in America. The whole trip has really helped her get over her split from Fazer and it's proved to be invaluable for contacts," a source tells the magazine.

The insider continues: "She’s even thinking of long-term term career goals since she's been out there."

"She's determined to be taking seriously as an artist. In LA, people know her as the Brit X Factor judge and she wants to capitalise on that."

Tulisa, who left band N-Dubz last year and joined The X Factor panel at only 23, is expected to release her first solo album in the next few months, taking advantage of her current position on the show.

"She has no intentions of cutting ties with the UK, as she’s still at the peak of her success here," the source adds.

But knowing Simon Cowell's ruthless attitude to judges on his reality shows, the insider suggested that if she's not back this year it could be the end of the UK for Tulisa.

"The opportunities in Hollywood are too good to miss," the source said.
