X Factor 2011: Arguing Tulisa and Kelly separated by show bosses!

Tulisa and Kelly

Uh oh! All is still not well between X Factor judges Tulisa and Kelly, to the point that show bosses have had to separate the pair's dressing rooms for the live shows. According those "sources", fellow judge Gary Barlow has become a tad peeved by the pair's bickering.

The judges will take to the stage for the first time tomorrow night as the final 16 perform US v UK songs, and it seems there's also a battle between the US and UK judges.

A source revealed of Kelly and Tulisa: "They haven't really spoken since bootcamp in August and don't seem to want to be near each other at the studios.

"Gary can't stand the feuding between the girls. He's even said he'd rather work than listen to them bitching - they're already driving him crazy."


The insider continued: "He's a pro and thinks it’s all about the music, while Kelly and Tulisa think it's all about them."

It doesn't sound too good behind the scenes!

Gary himself said recently: "I like rivalry between the judges, but I don't want it ever to result in the talent suffering because of it. That for me is the only line I am not going to cross."

But the source revealed that despite his best efforts, Gary was starting to get involved in the feud.

"He's closer to Kelly than to Tulisa, and there's an obvious on-screen chemistry between them, so he's been as sympathetic to Kelly, even if he's not aware he's taking sides," the source told Closer.

"Producers are talking about putting Kelly in the dressing room in the top floor the studios and Tulisa in a room downstairs. That's how bad it is."

That bad, eh?
