Kelly Rowland feels 'stitched up'

Kelly Rowland reportedly feels "stitched up" by The X Factor television bosses.

The former Destiny's Child star announced on Monday that she was not going to be returning as a judge on the British talent show.

But The Mirror newspaper claims that Kelly isn't happy with how the situation has been handled in light of recent rumours that Dannii Minogue may be returning to the programme.

"It was my decision, I just decided not to sign," Kelly, 31, told a friend.

"She has emails going back months showing discussions so it is stupid of them to say they didn't want her or she was being greedy.

"Simon Cowell has gone on record saying he wanted Kelly back. She loved doing the show so feels a bit let down. She feels stitched up now and it just looks like they are panicking because they don't have a judge."

It is reported that the show bosses wanted Kelly to work more hours for the same money as she received last year while the other judges; Gary Barlow, Tulisa and Louis Walsh received pay rises.

Kelly apparently now wants to sign on for a US TV show, star in a movie and record a new album.
