Is Britney Spears getting fired from "The X Factor?" Us Weekly seems to think so.
Unidentified sources tell the celebrity tabloid that the singer is getting the ole boot after just one season. BritBrit joined Season 2 of the singing competition, earning a giant paycheck of around $15 million. Spears and Demi Lovatoreplaced judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger.
The show's creator Simon Cowell has always publicly defended the beleaguered singer, but now it looks as if the tides are turning. "They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps," the unnamed source laments. "Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working."
Apparently Cowell wanted "crazy Britney" to be a drawing point for the show, but was given "boring Britney" instead.
Cheryl Cole's highly publicized firing and L.A. Reid's recent decision to leave the show have been followed aggressively in the media.
But Spears' potential canning would make quite a pop culture splash. In November, the singer said she will "definitely" be coming back for Season 3. However, according to Huffpost Entertainment, no announcements have been made about next year's judging lineup.
