    Former Destiny's Child singer Kelly Rowland is leaving British X Factor due to scheduling issues and global commitments. Since Rowland is based in the US, all that traveling back to forth had to be tough for her and she's splitting. We don't blame her.

    NME.com reports that the lovely and talented Rowland said she had been unable to find a "workable solution" to her time conflicts after deliberating with the show for a number of weeks.

    She said, "I love the UK and being part of the show last year. Mentoring the girls was such an incredible experience I will never forget. I would like to thank Simon [Cowell] for the great opportunity and asking me to be a judge last season."

    Should Kelly Rowland join the American edition of X Factor instead? Who should replace her on the UK edition?
