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?
