X Factor judges Tulisa and Kelly Rowland are now said to have settled their differences and are on speaking terms once more after a heart to heart phone call.

The pair fell out two weeks ago after Tulisa publicly accused one of Kelly’s acts, Misha B, of being ‘mean’ to the other hopefuls. Kelly was outraged and the tension grew behind the scenes, causing people to believe that she had fled to America in order to escape.

The Destiny’s Child singer also pulled a sickie last week, or should we say suffered from a ‘throat infection’, which made us wonder if she was ever coming back. But this week, the ladies have finally cleared the air.

A source told The Mirror:

Kelly said she understood what happened in the heat of the moment with Tulisa’s comments on Misha and her attacking contestants. She said she felt the whole thing got out of hand and they needed to move on. She has been in America, out of the X factor melting pot and realised that things had been out of proportion.

Well we could have told you that.

Kelly is back in the UK and will be on our screens as usual this Saturday. Now there’s no drama I guess we will actually have to start watching the performances again. Yawn.
