R&B diva Kelly Rowland may not be returning to The X Factor as a judge and could be replaced by Katy Perry.
After months of speculations about the new line-up for the popular talent show, it has now been alleged that the 'Movtiation' singer is out and Katy could be in.
The 'Part Of Me' singer did a stint of judging when she stepped in to replace Danni Minogue at the audtion stages in 2010.
A source speaking to the Daily Mail claimed that Kelly is "95 per cent" unlikely to return to the X Factor, saying: "Kelly was great in the auditions, but when she joined the live shows it just seemed that she didn’t really relax and enjoy herself."
Money has been cited as a major factor in the singer’s possible exit from the show. Kelly was reported to be receiving $500,000 for her appearance, but wanted to treble her salary.
However, producers Thames TV and Syco blasted her demands and said they would not be ‘bounced’ into offering her a ‘truckload of money’.
One source said: "We never negotiate a deal based on what another member of the show is getting as that would be ludicrous," adding: "We left things to the last minute last time and there’s no reason why we couldn’t do it again."
