Kelly Rowland goes AWOL

Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland has caught a flight back to the US after an on-screen argument with fellow X Factor judge judge Tulisa Contostavlos, 23.

A source at ITV told The Sun: "We don't know where she is."

The latest developments come after a tense weekend for the X Factor panel. On Saturday, Kelly's 19-year-old protege Misha Bryan was accused of "bullying" - although it was Louis Walsh, and not Tulisa, who used the word.

On Sunday night's show, Kelly refused to speak to the N-Dubz star.

X factor insiders have accused Kelly of leaving her acts "in the lurch". She is supposed to be mentoring Misha B, Sophie Habibis and Janet Devlin. An insider said: "If I was one of them I'd be thinking, 'Great ... thanks'. As the contest heats up, she's left them in the lurch all week. It's very arrogant."
