More gossip and quotes from “sources” regarding Britney Spears’ X Factor exit from The New York Daily News:
Britney Spears shocked Simon Cowell and the producers of “X Factor” Wednesday night, when someone in her camp “leaked” that the pop-tart had quit the Fox talent show, sources told The Daily News
But the move may simply be a bid to head off her own firing.
“Obviously it saves her the humiliation of being fired,” an “X Factor” a show insider told TMZ.
“Everyone knows Simon (Cowell) was not happy with her bland performance on the show. It’s been said before: he wanted crazy Britney, she gave him Britney on sleeping pills.”
Cowell made the final decision to dump Spears from the show several weeks ago, a second production source said.
“Over the holidays Simon and the production team discussed the judge’s lineup for next year and Britney was not part of their plans,” the production source said.
It sounds reasonable to me that Britney’s camp leaked her exit plans in an attempt to control the story. Although, I think Simon Cowell would have allowed Britney to save face and quit first. But there’s no way the X Factor production is going to shell out 15 million dollars for a celebrity that brings little more than gif-able faces to the judges’ table.
It’s despicable if true that Simon hired the singer hoping for “crazy Britney.” Gosh, Simon, maybe you could have had someone on your production team hide her meds! Ugh.
I can’t imagine what more Simon can do to save X Factor, if I’m being honest.
