Kelly Rowland 'Wants X Factor Pay Rise'?
Reports claim Kelly is holding out for more money...
This week Gary Barlow confirmed that he would be back to take his place on the panel and rumours suggested that his X Factor earnings had been boosted to nearly £2 million.
Now reports suggest the former Destiny's Child star is holding out for more money.
An insider told The Sun: "[Kelly] was a popular judge last year - the producers and Simon have said as much.MTV
The source added: "If they want to make her a serious offer then they will have to do just that... make her a serious offer."
The first auditions for the 2012 series are just three weeks away and, while Gary, Tulisa and Louis Walsh are all expected to return, the fourth judge is yet to be confirmed.
