Looks like the rumors have come to a close. After months of speculation, E! News learned exclusively yesterday that Britney Spears has offially joined X Factor.
“The contract is signed,” reveals source close to the star. “There’s been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she’s on. It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited.”
E! went on to also report that Spears will receive the $15 million pay check that she was rumored to get. Not too shabby. It’ll be interesting to see if it makes the difference necessary to aid the ailing, and now expensively retooled competition show. Will you be watching?
