Singer Kelly Rowland was suffering with a viral infection
The Destiny’s Child star, who stayed in LA because she’d contracted a throat infection and wasn’t allowed to fly, visited a Beverly Hills beautician wearing a green hooded tracksuit yesterday.
Kelly‘s expected to return to the UK in time for Saturday’s live show to support her 2 remaining girls in the competition.
She sent home Sophie Habibis on Sunday after she and Misha B, 19, ended up in the bottom 2 for receiving the fewest public votes.
But the axed contestant isn’t angry with Kelly, 30, for her decision, which was made via a phone link-up to the London studio.
‘It’s not her fault,’ says Sophie, 19.
‘With Kelly, my biggest concern was her health and things like this you have to deal with.’
