It turns out that Kelly Rowland's trip to LA this week has nothing to do with The X Factor or her rows with Tulisa, with a spokesperson insisting that the three day leave was "planned" in advance. Despite the reasons behind the trip however, it's still sure to annoy her acts.
While Gary Barlow has already been to the X Factor house this week to work with his boys, Kelly won't even be back in the country until Thursday!
A spokesperson said: "She is in LA for business and is only there for three days. She will be coming back on Thursday to see the girls."
The spokesperson added: "She is not missing anything and will be in constant contact with the contestants by Skype and talking to them every day, and she is being sent MP3s of the songs.
"This has been in her diary for a long time."
