Kelly Rowland 2011

X Factor judges Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa have all apparently been frustrated by "meddling" Kelly Rowland trying to mentor ALL of the singers on the show! According to Now magazine, it's left the contestants confused about who really is meant to be helping them.

But now the other judges have told the US star to "butt out" from giving advice to their acts.

"All the panel have been frustrated by Kelly," a source blabs to the magazine. "She's been advising acts on music and style choices. She's even been coaching them on how to behave in front of the camera."

The source continued: "They think she should just concentrate on her girls. But Kelly wants everyone to shine, the problem is the contestants are getting confused.

"They are torn between loyalty to their own mentors and respect for Kelly's experience in Destiny's Child."

However with Kelly away for the week, it seems that the other judges have jumped at the chance to do a bit of mentoring of HER acts, with Tulisa giving Sophie Habibis advice on this weekend's performance.

“Sophie has made no secret of the fact that she thinks Tulisa is brilliant and that she’d love her to be her mentor," a source said this week.

It’s sure to make it interesting backstage when Kelly returns today!
