Britney Spears and Simon Cowell are in talks to have the pop star join the judging team on “The X Factor,” but there’s just one tiny detail to hash out first: money. Cowell is offering $10 million for the season, according to E! News, but Spears and her fiance-agent Jason Trawick are looking for $16 million.
A source confirmed to The Hollywood Reporter that the parties are indeed negotiating a contract that could be finalized as soon as next week, but Cowell has thus far remained mum in the press, saying only that “there’s going to be a lot of twists and turns over the next few weeks and a lot of things we’re going to announce” in a February conference call.
Should Britney Spears sign on as a judge on “The X Factor,” the show still needs one more judge and two hosts. Are you hoping that Spears signs on as a judge?
