Simon Cowell recently gave most of his X Factor staff the ax in order to make room for bigger talent. According to new reports, Britney Spears could soon be taking a seat in one of the judges chairs.
According to the Hollywood Reporter Spears is close to signing a deal to be a judge on The X Factor.
Deadline reports that Spears agent, her fiance Jason Trawick, is handling the negotiations and has managed to get Spears a $10 million years. The source didn’t say how long the contract would be for.
Nothing’s for sure yet but a “well-placed source” said that the deal could be finalized next week.
Earlier this year Cowell and L.A. Reid fired Steve Jones and judges Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul. Cowell has said that the two open judges seats will be filled by female singers. Katy Perry, LeAnn Rimes and Janet Jackson, have all been rumored to be filling one of the empty chairs but so far no one has signed a contract. It was also rumored that Beyonce was being offered $500 million to join the show but Cowell said that the rumors weren’t true.
