Britney Spears could make $15 million to become judge on 'X Factor'
While some of you have been debating whether or not Melissa Gilbert hit her head on the floor on Dancing With the Stars, it sounds like Simon Cowell is quietly putting together a deal to bring Britney Spears to the judges' panel on The X Factor next season. It would come with the low, low price tag of $15 million, too.
Deadline.com says "the two sides are now headed for the final stretch after a big breakthrough over the weekend when major deal points were agreed upon." One of those major deal points awas apparently paying Brit-Brit $3 million more per year than Jennifer Lopez. We wonder how she's gonna feel about that.
E! News adds that fiance Jason Trawick is negotiating the whole thing, hoping to get himself a producer credit. "Jason is expected to be there every day Britney is on set. He is her rock and will help guide her through the process. He is the person she trusts the most,"a source tells E!
Simon loves Britney and has been looking for replacement judges since Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger got the boot after a solid but lackluster first season for the show, ratings wise. Can you imagine a $15 million deal for a glorified soccer mom? That's what happens when a guy who drives a $1 million Bugatti Veyron makes the deals. She still has a way better chance than Justin Bieber, who is also rumored to be on the short list. That's when it all stops being funny.
