Looks like Britney Spears’ won’t be coming back for season 2 of X Factor!
According to US Weekly, the singer “will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working.”
So what went wrong? Well, for one thing, they don’t feel she’s earning her $15 million contract. “They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”
Adds a third source of show co-creator Simon Cowell, who is leading the charge to axe the performer: “He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”
Spears’ firing would be the latest in a long line of departures over the show’s short lifespan. In the space of just two seasons, the series has lost or let go of Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Cole and — most recently — L.A. Reid, who announced his decision to leave earlier this month.
Spears is likely next on the chopping block, but Cowell, 53, hasn’t always had it out for her. During a conference call in October, he told reporters that she had been “a lot better than everybody thought…She’s very engaged…She has been, I think, a very, very good judge.”
Alas, their professional relationship seems to have soured some, as has the singer’s personal relationship with fiance Jason Trawick. Sources tell Us that the mom to Preston, 7, and Jayden, 6, has been increasingly butting heads with her beau.
“They are pulling away from each other,” a pal explains to Us. “Unless things change, they will split for good.”
$15 million for one season’s work? That’s ridiculous. I knew from the beginning Britney was a horrible idea, and I’m not even being paid for my opinion. How could they not see this coming?
