Mrs. Carter: Kelly Rowland may be taking on another role to go along with singer and “X Factor” judge: Wife.
Right in the middle of what is the current round of live shows on the American version of the talent competition, sources claim to Us Weekly that she and her boyfriend / manager Tim Witherspoon are engaged. Here is what one source had to say on the subject:
“She has been showing [the ring] off to friends and family and is very happy. She wants to…enjoy [it] and celebrate for a bit longer.”
This is not the first time that Rowland has been engaged, as she was previously tied to NFL star Roy Williams. However, that relationship never made it to the altar; if this one does, it will be the former Destiny’s Child member’s first marriage.
This news will cap off what has been quite the busy fall for Rowland, who has been the target of mostly-positive reviews for her role on the Fox series. (As a matter of fact, she is one of the few great parts of the series.) Prior to her appearance here, Kelly was a part of the British version of the show the same year that Nicole Scherzinger was a judge on the American show. Eventually, the two have managed to more or less switch places. Kelly is a part of a panel now with Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell, and Paulina Rubio. Right now, the show’s future is more or less in doubt thanks to low ratings, and it may not be until the start of the year before we learn if it is coming back. If it does return, we anticipate seeing Rowland asked back for more. The other judges? Well, let’s just say that save for Simon, it would not be a surprise to see a pretty heavy turnover.
