(LOS ANGELES) — Earlier this week, a Fox executive said he’d be interested in having Britney Spears return to The X Factor next season. But according to TMZ.com, Spears has already made up her mind — she’s not coming back.
The website reports that Spears is quitting the show and is turning her attention back to her music career, including her work on a new album as well as a possible tour.
A source says, “Britney loves Simon [Cowell], she likes Demi Lovato but her thing is music.”
Then again, Us Weekly recently reported that Spears was going to be fired from The X Factor.
She joined the singing competition as a judge and mentor for its second season, reportedly earning $15 million.
