Kelly Rowland has seven assistants
Former Destiny's Child star Kelly Rowland is getting a reputation as a diva because she is accompanied by seven assistants as she films 'The X Factor'.
Kelly Rowland is accompanied by seven assistants as she films 'The X Factor'.
The former Destiny's Child singer is joined on the judging panel of the ITV1 show by Gary Barlow, Louis Walsh and Tulisa Contostavlos but Kelly has amazed producers with her huge entourage, which is more than her fellow panelists' total staff.
During the auditions, American Kelly has two stylists, a hairdresser, a make-up artist, a personal assistant, a UK manager and a US manager, which is much more than her predecessors Simon Cowell, Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue ever had.
A source told the Daily Star newspaper: "When it comes to entourages, Kelly is the biggest diva we've ever had on the show. Even Cheryl Cole and Dannii Minogue, let alone Simon Cowell, had fewer people on their team.
"But Kelly is American and it's quite normal in the States for stars to have huge entourages around them."
However, Kelly's fellow judges aren't jealous and just find it funny.
The source added: "The other judges think it's hilarious, especially Gary and Louis, who aren't overly obsessed with looks and don't have yes-men running around them with iPads and earpieces!"
