Britney Spears Confirms 'X Factor' Departure; Statement

Britney Spears has confirmed that she is not returning to The X Factor for the upcoming third season.

“I’ve made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio,” Britney said in a statement. “Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”

“In light of sourced reports and speculation, it is confirmed that Britney did decide, and is in fact not returning to X Factor. Fox has been informed,” her rep tells JustJared.com.

Britney is reportedly in negotiations to headline a show in Las Vegas, according to TMZ!
