(NEW YORK, January 11 2013) – Britney was paid 15 million to join as a judge this past Fall for X-Factor, but is our pop princess returning?
As fans expected, Britney Spears will not be returning to X-Factor for the new season. Instead she is focusing on her eight studio album and possibly touring later this year.
explained “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,” said Spears. “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.”
Along with Britney leaving, it has also been confirmed that L.A Reid will not return for the upcoming season of X-Factor as well.
