Paula Abdul: 'X Factor' Exit Confirmed

Paula Abdul has confirmed that she is leaving The X Factor.

“Yes, it’s true; I won’t be returning to The X Factor next season. I’ve learned through my longevity in this industry that business decisions often times override personal considerations,” Paula said in a statement.

Simon and I, along with Fox and Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, and I have absolute understanding of the situation.”

Simon is, and will remain a dear friend of mine and I’ve treasured my experience working this past season with my extended family at Fox and Fremantle. I want nothing more than for The X Factor to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful,” Paula concluded.

Also leaving the show are host Steve Jones and judge Nicole Scherzinger.

WHO DO YOU THINK should replace those who have left the show?

    There’s really nothing they can do to save this show in the US. We’ve already got Idol, The Voice, America’s Got Talent. I think people just don’t have the stomach for another one.

    LOL! I take it that the bring Cheryl Back people are fellow Brits. Get over yourselves. CHERYL is NOT known in the USA. If they are axing Paula Abdul, why would they bring a total unknown back to try and improve ratings to the show?

    blah Says:

    why does she leaves these shows? They are everything that is left to her from her faded carer… She failed to restart her singing carer back in 2007/2008 she should be smart enough to demand less money and somehow stay at these shows (x factor, american idol…)

    @MTUK1: Ummm, I am from a small town in Kentucky and I adore Cheryl Cole!! I was pissed to find out she was fired last season, and would love for her to be brought back. And those Americans that don’t know her can get to know her. I’m really disgusted that LA Reid is still going to be part of it. I hated him more than Paula and Nicole put together.
