X Factor 2011: Kelly Rowland and Tulisa clash over Misha B bullying accusations

X Factor judges Tulisa and Kelly Rowland clashed on the Xtra Factor last night following claims from the N-Dubz star and Louis Walsh that Kelly's act Misha B had been bullying other contestants. Speaking on the ITV2 spin-off show, Kelly said it wasn't fair to talk about something that may have happened off of the stage.

The former Destiny's Child singer said: "The real Misha is very humble and excited to be here.

"But I think it is important to realise, there is always one person’s side, the other person’s side and the truth.

"I think that bringing that forward, I personally don’t agree with it and if Tulisa felt like expressing herself that’s fine but I don’t think that it’s fair to bring it forward because we don’t know all of what happened."


Gary took Kelly's side, adding: "I think this back biting has started and I don’t think we should get involved."

Defending herself, Tulisa hit back: "I feel like if you are going to portray a certain person on stage, it should be the same person that’s backstage.

"I feel like when it comes to energy, it’s a different character but when it comes to who you are, if she’s being someone else backstage and said a bitchy comment to one of my acts then I’m going to express it.

But Kelly retorted: "I think that deserves to stay backstage, I think there is a time and a place for everything and we were here tonight to judge them for what they did onstage and not for what is going on backstage."

Were Tulisa and Louis right to confront Misha on the claims?
