Kelly Rowland’s representatives have ensured X Factor bosses that the American singer will return to the UK by the end of the week.

The Destiny’s Child member reportedly fled the country after a difficult weekend spent arguing with fellow X Factor judge  Tulisa Contostavlos.

However, it has since been revealed that she is simply in America for business, something which has been planned for months.

In a statement on behalf of Kelly, a representative said: “She is in LA for business and is only there for three days. She will be coming back on Thursday to see the girls.”

“She is not missing anything and will be in constant contact with the contestants by Skype and talking to them every day, and she is being sent MP3s of the songs.”

“This has been in her diary for a long time.”

Regardless of the fact that Kelly will return this week, it has to be said that tensions have been boiling over on the judging panel recently.

With the show becoming more and more competitive each week, the four judges have been squabbling constantly and it isn’t showing signs of slowing down.

Not only have Kelly and Tulisa failed to make-up following the weekend’s arguments, but the N-Dubz singer has been left furious that Misha B – one of Kelly’s acts – has been bragging about texting the judges boyfriend, Fazer.

Elsewhere, Frankie Cocozza  – who is another act the judges can’t seem to agree on – has admitted that he is ‘one of the weakest singers on the show’.

After avoiding the bottom two on Sunday, the 18-year-old tweeted: “I know I’m the weakest singer in the competition, nice of people to keep reminding me.. I’m not gunna give up trying to improve. Mugs.”

Overall, it has been another much talked about week for X Factor 2011 and this weekend is set to be excellent viewing once again.
