Do we love Britney Spears more than Jennifer Lopez? Simon the Cow apparently does, that’s why Britney is getting more money, more money, and more money than American Idol’s judge Jlo. Britney will join Simon as a judge on X Factor, and she will also be raking in about 15 million for doing it.
Jennifer brings in approx 13 million from American Idol, but the cherry on top is…… Brittney’s man Jason will be getting a kick back from the show as well, an undisclosed amount of course, while Jenny’s boy toy Casper gets zilch…..lovin it!!!!
Britney Spears and “X Factor” have struck a deal that will line the singer’s pocket to the tune of $15 million for next season … TMZ has learned.
We’re told Britney’s team and “X Factor” big wigs are working out “the fine points” of the deal, but the major terms are locked.
Once the final contract is drafted and signed … it will go to Jamie Spears, Britney’s daddy and conservator, as well as lawyers for the conservatorship. If they sign off, it must then go to the judge who oversees the conservatorship for approval.
Sources connected with the deal tell us … it’s a “virtual certainty” everyone will sign off. By the way, we’re told Jason Trawick is “very involved” in the negotiations.
Simon Cowell, the “X Factor” Executive Producer, told us on TMZ Live Tuesday, “I would love to have her on the show. I think she would be a fascinating person to sit next to.” Simon said they may make an announcement within a week.
Britney would fill one of two vacant seats on the judging panel. She’s also way more expensive than the castoffs — Nicole Scherzinger reportedly pulled in $1.5 million, while Paula Abdul raked in $2.5 mil.
“X Factor” refused to confirm or deny our story.
Mediajuicejoint: Move over bacon now it’s something meatier, thats what Nicki Minaj was really saying to Jennifer Lopez. Nicki was giving Jlo a clue, that’s she’s gunning for her spot.
Don’t be surprised to see Nicki’s face and all that asz as a judge on American Idol……. God knows we need at least one black person up there to represent, pun intended Dog, or maybe she will fill the other vacant spot on X Factor.
Nicki can sit beside our 15 million dollar girl Britney Spears and X Factor can have two pop stars up there, then maybe I’ll tune in ………but please leave SB (Scab Breezy) asz home. We don’t need any more suitcase malfunctions.
