Britney Spears May Not Be Back on "X Factor" Next Season, Unless She Accepts a Pay Cut

11/2/2012

RadarOnline.com reports that BRITNEY SPEARS may not be back on "X Factor" next season, unless she accepts a PAY CUT.  She's currently on a one-year deal, which pays her $15 million.  Fox has renewed the show for a third season.

The site quotes an "insider" who basically says that Britney didn't bring the ratings boost that the producers expected, and therefore, her huge contract makes less sense, and she could be expendable.

So would Britney agree to taking less money?  Probably not.  The insider adds, "When Britney signed [on] she expected to make MORE if an extension for a third season was agreed.  That won't be the case now. It's highly unlikely Britney will accept a pay decrease."
