Simon Cowell is reportedly having doubts over the future of Kelly Rowland as an X Factor judge after being less than impressed by her efforts on the show last year.
'Lay It On Me' star Rowland was drafted onto a new look panel in 2011, which also included Gary Barlow and Tulisa, as the X Factor fell behind Strictly Come Dancing in the ratings for the first time in years.
Now sources close to Cowell have revealed his feelings on the former Destiny's Child star, and they're not exactly positive.
"She’s been told that Simon was disappointed with her performance and felt she didn’t connect with her acts," a source told Star magazine. "He didn’t like the way she was with Tulisa. She’s feeling really stressed about her career now and it’s showing in her weight."
Meanwhile, friends of Kelly's have raised concerns about her weight at the moment, shocked by her appearance at a recent event. "A lot of people didn’t realise it was Kelly at first – she’s very thin and her shoulders looked very bony," they said.
