It looks like L.A. Reid will not be the only one who will be leaving “The X Factor” this season.

Despite Simon Cowell‘s comments that Britney Spears makes a good “mean” judge on the singing competition show, sources suggest that she “will get the boot” just like former female judges Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and Cheryl Cole did.

As seen in the latest issue of Us Weekly, an insider stated about the pop star to Hot Stuff:

“Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working.”

Apparently, they don’t think her $15 million contract is worth the performance that she gave throughout the season.

Another source told the mag:

“They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps.”

A third source claimed:

“[Cowell] wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”

A friend of Simon‘s reportedly added of the two:

“They are pulling away from each other. Unless things change, they will split for good.”

Do you think Britney will really get fired from the show anytime soon?
