Tulisa Contostavlos, FEISTY Tulisa Contostavlos has accused rival judge Kelly Rowland of starting their X Factor feud.
She said: “All this stuff about me not speaking to Kelly is not true. She wasn’t speaking to ME.”
Speaking backstage on Sunday, Tulisa told The Sun: “Look, I just spoke my mind and I don’t take it back.
“But me and Kelly have made peace now. We’re cool.”
Tulisa even suggested the pair might record a duet.
They sparked one of the ITV show’s most bitter feuds two weeks ago after Tulisa slammed Kelly’s act Misha B live on air for hassling other contestants.
The Sun told how Kelly, 30, stormed off home to the US and blanked Tulisa for an entire week after she missed a weekend’s worth of shows claiming she was ill.
Tulisa, 23, spoke out as she confirmed her band N-Dubz had officially been shelved for up to TWO YEARS as she launches a solo career.
She admitted Kelly rubbed her up the wrong way when she meddled with her acts, adding: “Yeah she was giving me tips on things, like showing me clothes she thought might work for Little Mix.
“But it’s not like I’m gonna ignore something that’s a good idea. I just didn’t like it at the time. I didn’t go mad. We just disagreed.”
And she revealed: “We had a long chat on Saturday night — a proper chat about the show and personal stuff too. It’s quite stressful being on the show and there’s so much going on I don’t think we ever had time to just talk about everything.
“We actually have a lot in common, which might surprise some people.
“We might even do a collaboration when I do my solo stuff. There you go, bet you didn’t think I’d say that?”
Tulisa claimed she was FED UP with arguments and that the judges were just “passionate” — not hateful of each other.
She added: “I don’t see it like we’re all arguing all the time. We’re all opinionated people who have experience in the business so of course we say what we feel.
“Yeah there’s some tension but it’s not done deliberately. I’m so passionate about this and sometimes people might think I’m being stroppy or whatever but that’s just me.”
Tulisa was shocked that her act The Risk got the boot after becoming the lowest scoring act in Sunday night’s double elimination.
She admitted: “I can’t believe they’ve gone. Maybe it’s because we changed a member. People might have thought they weren’t a real band if we were changing people around.”
Turning to her own pop career, Tulisa said: “My plan is to release my first single in February and then put out two or three before my album comes out.
“N-Dubz are having a break. We might not do anything for up to two years.
“We’re putting out a greatest hits record on November 28 which I hope the fans — new and old — will love. We put our heart and soul into our music so it’s kind of a celebration of the best stuff we’ve done.”
