X Factor judges Tulisa and Kelly Rowland are no longer speaking, the pair have confirmed. Following the news that Kelly has pulled out of tonight's fourth live show, the girls have both said that their relationship is far from perfect at the moment.
It follows rows over comments made to Kelly's act Misha B last Saturday night, with the N-Dubz star accusing her of being "mean" to other acts.
Talking from LA, where she's under doctor's orders not to fly, Kelly said this week: "I still disagree with Tulisa, but in the heat of the moment the passion gets to us and we are all extremely passionate about what we do as mentors.
"Misha will continue to shine and she will learn from this experience and use it to master herself as an artist as we all learn to do."
Last night Tulisa admitted: "We are not speaking.
"I’m getting on with it. I’m mature enough to take it on the chin. She can talk to me and we can sort it out, but if she doesn’t, we don’t have to talk."
And a defiant Tulisa added: “If we don’t speak anymore it’s because she doesn’t want to speak to me. I don’t feel I have to apologise or make the first move because I’ve done nothing wrong.”
We told this morning how Janet Devlin had never even seen the pair together off screen. Asked about tension between them, the 16-year-old - who is mentored by Kelly - told us: "I’ve never seen them together.”
