Britney Spears To Make $15 Million As Season 2 Judge On 'The X Factor'
Britney Spears is reportedly closing in on signing a deal that will put her on the judges panel of The X Factor along with Simon Cowell and Antonio "L.A." Reid.
Rumors that Britney was joining the show began early last month, when it was reported that her fiance and agent Jason Trawick was closing in on a deal with the producers of the show. Britney ultimately turned down their offer of $10 million and rumors died down.
But things heated up again over the weekend, and now with a $15 million payday agreed upon, only the smaller details remain to be worked out.
Britney will receive $13 million to judge, plus another $2 million to perform on the show. The deal is in place, but nothing is signed yet as Britney's father Jamie is still her acting conservator - something Trawick is looking to take over.
A source tells E! News, "Both camps were back and forth on the money but now they have finally come to agreement on the fee."
Furthur reports also suggest Trawick will also be joining the show - as a producer.
"Jason is expected to be there every day Britney is on set," a source says. "He is her rock and will help guide her through the process. He is the person she trusts the most."
According to Cowell, the show is going after a "very famous actress" to fill the fourth spot on the judges' panel.
