Britney Spears will be joining X Factor for $16 Million
You all heard the rumors a few weeks back and it looks like they were true. Britney Spears is close to signing a $16 million deal to become a judge on the X Factor, a source told Us Weekly. “No paperwork has actually been signed yet, but they finally came to terms.” the source says.
X Factor is refusing to confirm the details of the report. All they will say is that “nothing has happened and nothing has changed” but we all know that is not true. When the rumors first came out a few weeks ago, it was reported that Britney might be getting $10 million, so if she really did end up getting $16 million….then go Britney!
Simon probably didn’t mind the extra $6 million, it seemed like he was almost becoming desperate. He had attempted to get several other big name celebrities, like Janet Jackson who respectfully declined their offer. Cowell knew he had to get at least one big name to save his show — after a very disappointing first season. It looks he has finally found that big name; Britney Spears will certainly get more people to watch the show.
Will it be enough to keep up with Idol and The Voice? We’ll find out soon enough.
