Poor Britney Spears has been unemployed for so long, it’s about time she gets some good news! It looks like she’ll be named as a new judge on “X Factor” any day now.
Sources confirm the singer is in final-stage negotiations with Fox and X Factor producers to join the series this fall. Spears has reportedly haggled a $15 million payout for the gig (slightly more than Jennifer Lopez snagged for American Idol).
If the deal closes, Spears could be an ideal choice to boost music competition’s ratings: She has both credible music industry experience and a chaotic personality that’s lent itself to fun headlines over the years. That’s the type of celebrity mixture that Factor chief Simon Cowell can work with.
Britney Spears has been offered $15 million to be an X-Factor judge. The courts/conservatorship must agree

Word is, Britney Spears is thisclose to joining #TheXFactor as a judge. The show still needs another judge… Mariah or Pink would be great!
