The 'Down For Whatever' star gives her side of the story about The X Factor saga.

Kelly Rowland has confirmed that Tulisa Contostavlos has apologised over remarks she made about Mischa B on The X Factor.

The N-Dubz star upset Kelly two weeks ago when she criticised the wannabe starlet's behaviour towards her fellow contestants during the live show.

The former Destiny's Child star then missed last weekend's edition of The X Factor due to illness, sparking rumours that the pair had fallen out.

However, Kelly has revealed that the two judges are on good terms – although she is still upset by the timing of Tulisa's remarks.

"I just don't like what she said about…I just think that was still an inappropriate time to say that, and I still feel like that," she told Capital's Rich Clarke.

When asked if Tulisa had apologised, Kelly said she had, adding: "We agreed to disagree and that's perfectly fine – we'll have several moments like that I'm sure.

"We're judges, we won't always agree."

Meanwhile, Kelly is preparing to release her new album 'Here I Am' later this month. The UK release will feature an additional five tracks.
