Kelly Rowland engaged to Tim Witherspoon: Do "X Factor" judges succeed at marriage?

Kelly Rowland, "X Factor" judge and former Destiny's Child singer, has gotten engaged. She plans to marry her boyfriend and manager, Tim Witherspoon.

According to Us Weekly, Rowland has a new ring and is sharing the good news with friends and family. "She has been showing [the ring] off to friends and family and is very happy," a source explained.

But love and marriage can be rather a tough thing for those who judge "The X Factor." A quicklook at the rest of the judges to come through the show in its short run makes that very clear:

  • Simon Cowell -- The former confirmed bachelor is engaged to Lauren Silverman after he got the married woman pregnant.
  • Paula Abdul - Two previous marriages (one to Emilio Estevez) and a long-term relationship down, Abdul is still looking to be someone's girl.
  • Cheryl Cole - She may have taken husband Ashley Cole's name, but the marriage lasted less than three years.
  • Nicole Scherzinger - The former Pussycat Dolls singer has had a bunch of long-term relationships, none of which are happening now.
  • Demi Lovato - She's still kind of young for real heartache, but Lovato did date Joe Jonas for awhile.
  • Britney Spears - Forget about the too-young thing. Spears has been married twice -- to Jason Alexander for less than three days and to Kevin Federline for less than three years.
  • Paulina Rubio - Her marriage lasted almost five years and produced a son, but Rubio and ex Nicolas Vallejo Najero reportedly don't talk anymore.
  • L.A. Reid - Actually, it looks like Reid has done well in the relationship department. Let's hope Rowland follows this lead!

"The X Factor" airs Wednesdays and Thursdays at 8 p.m. on FOX.
