Britney Spears will not be hitting X Factor one more time.

Us Weekly reports the singer and her $15 million (all figures US) contract will not be returning as a judge on the reality competition after she failed to bring either ratings or personality to the struggling series.

“Britney will get the boot,” an insider squealed to US. “Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working.”

According to another source, Spears’ halfhearted mentorship led series head honcho Simon Cowell and his producers to give her the axe.

“He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney,” the source said.

Spears’ dismissal would be the latest in a long line of departing judges – including Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger, Cheryl Cole and, most recently, L.A. Reid — for the series, which wrapped up its second season earlier this month.

But, if there is a silver lining to Spears new found free time, it can be found in the possible salvation of her troubled relationship with fiance Jason Trawick.  Us reports the couple have been having issues.

“They are pulling away from each other,” a friend of the couple explained. “Unless things change, they will split for good.”

Psssttt ! Envoie-ça à ton ami!
