Simon Cowell Courts Paula Abdul

1/11/2010 6:19 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Paula AbdulPaula Abdul has had discussions with Simon Cowell about being a judge on the U.S. version of "The X Factor"... sources tell TMZ.

The irony is stunning -- Simon, the lynchpin of "American Idol," abandoning ship and teaming up with the woman who was unceremoniously dumped from "A.I."

Our sources would not say how far along the discussions have gone between Simon and Paula ... but there were talks as recently as late last week.

It would be wonderful if Paula were back on AI, but regardeless please, please, get rid of that awful Ellen who knows nothing about music, but uses the show to put her lesbian lifestyle in our faces.

All these losers who don't like her are stupid. She isn't a "has been" or a "nobody" at all. Right now she is a judge on x factor and definitely a somebody. She is a very kind hearted person and to say that she stinks is childish and rude,(ernie)to be calling her all these names. Paula is a nice person who doesn't deserve thi*****e.
