X Factor judge Tulisa Contostavlos reportedly blames The Risk leaving the show on her arguments with Kelly Rowland over Misha B. According to Star magazine, Tulisa thinks the rows have dented the popularity of her acts.
The Risk polled the fewest votes two weeks ago to become the first to leave in a double elimination, despite at one point being the favourites to win.
"She's really beating herself up about it," a source blabs. "She says she feels like she's failed her acts and that it has all gone horribly wrong.
"Tulisa was genuinely shocked about The Risk, as she was convinced they were her best shot to win."
And with just one group left in her category, Tulisa fears the worst.
"Now she's worried that Little Mix will end up going the same way. And seeing her acts go in quick succession has really made her question her abilities as a judge.
"Tulisa reckons her row with Kelly has dented her chances of winning," the source adds. "She regrets getting involved in the drama.
"She's realised how her comments about Misha would have been perceived by the audience and she's convinced it had affected the popularity of her own acts."
But the supposed insider revealed that Little Mix have given Tulisa their full backing.
"The girls told Tulisa how much they appreciate her, which cheered her up. She's touched that they still believe in her," the source said.
