There have been plenty of rumours about the future of Britney Spears on The X Factor USA, with many saying that she has quit, while others said she was being booted off of the show. Now it has been confirmed that Britney is in fact quitting the show and has not been fired.
A statement released by a spokesperson for Britney Spears read, “I've made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it's time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can't wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”
Now that it has been confirmed that Britney Spears is leaving The X Factor USA, it means that Simon Cowell is going to have even more work to do before the new season begins filming. Not only will he now have to find a replacement for Britney Spears but he will also need to replace LA Reid, who has also confirmed his exit from The X Factor USA.
Meanwhile, the UK version of The X Factor has also had a number of rumours about who will be leaving and who will be joining the judging panel but nothing has yet been confirmed.
