Is Britney Spears being fired from The X Factor?
Show creator Simon Cowell is reportedly giving Spears the boot after just one season as a judge.
"Britney will get the boot," Us Weekly is reporting. "Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working."
After paying Spears $15 million to appear on the show, Cowell was reportedly disappointed with her "low energy" performance. "They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps," an insider tells the magazine.
"He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney," says a source.
If the rumors are true, Britney will join a long list of departures from the show in just two seasons. Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Cole, and L.A. Reid have all left the show or been let go.
