Kelly Rowland has a throat infection
The Destiny’s Child star, 30, who’s been in LA this week, has a throat infection and says she cannot fly.
Favourite to replace Kelly is X Factor USA judge Nicole Scherzinger, but Cheryl Cole is also in the UK and viewers would love to see her back.
Louis missed an X Factor live show after Stephen Gately‘s death in 2009, but that was an exceptional circumstance.
‘Quite honestly, it’s expected that the judges would have to be on their death bed to miss a show,’ a source tells the Daily Mail.
The fact that Kelly has a throat infection hardly seems that desperate.’
But a spokesman for Kelly says: She’s really sick.
Her doctor is not permitting her to fly.
‘She has a viral throat infection. She is really, really sick.
She has not gone AWOL. She will be back. She’s been in contact with the girls. She’s been on intravenous drips. Her doctor will not permit her to fly. She tried to get on a flight today but her doctor wasn’t letting her.’
