Tabloid reports and the DS forums have speculated that Minogue and Louis Walsh may have formed a faction on the show this year to stand up against Simon Cowell and Cheryl Cole.
However, speaking at The Mirror's Pride of Britain Awards, the judge played down accusations of bullying and divides between the show's stars.
"I don't think anyone is ganging up on anyone else, despite what you may hear," she said. "But me and Louis have become friends and he is a close friend of mine.
"We never had that before and at the beginning it was very rocky, so I think we're enjoying that and it looks like we're divided, but we're not divided at all."
However, the Australian did confess that she was hoping to get one over Cowell and Cole with her Boys this year.
"We're scared of [Simon]. He's got One Direction," she said. "We are in there to beat him and we don't want Cheryl to get the hat-trick."
