L.A. Reid Leaving 'X Factor' After Season 2

L.A. Reid will not be returning to The X Factor for the show’s upcoming third season.

“I have the utmost respect for Simon Cowell,” the 56-year-old judge said (via THR). “He is the very best, and I have had the opportunity to learn so much from him. Working with him on X Factor has been a once-in-a-lifetime experience. I’m honored to have sat on the panel with such incredible talent.”

“Of course I will miss the show; In my opinion Simon attracts the best talent,” L.A. added. “But I’m looking forward to getting back to my core business and the responsibility of running Epic Records.”
