Britney Spears is said to be leaving the US X Factor after judging on the show for one season.
Rumours have circulated that the singer will be saying goodbye to her $15 million contract with the show, with reasons ranging from Simon Cowell being unimpressed with her lacklustre performance in the competition to the artist deciding to focus on her music.
Fox President Kevin Reilly refused to give a definite answer about the singer's position when questioned, stating that he didn't know whether Britney would return. "For next year, I don't know," said the boss.
Fellow judge LA Reid has also announced his departure, stating that he will be leaving the show to focus on his record label.
