Britney Spears

'X-Factor' Deal NOT SIGNED

EXCLUSIVE

Britney Spears has NOT signed on to do "X Factor," contrary to numerous reports.

Sources connected with Britney tell us, they are "very close" to signing, working out the last few details, but the deal has not been inked.

TMZ broke the story ... Britney will be making $15 million as a judge next season.

We're told the deal should be signed in the next day or two. The goal is for FOX to make the announcement Monday at the Upfronts in NYC -- that's where the Fall lineup is unveiled.

For her part, we're told Britney is really into it and the deal will definitely be signed, but not by her.  Since she's under a conservatorship, Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick -- the co-conservators -- will be the ones to sign their John Hancocks.

The contract must be approved by the judge handling the conservatorship, but sources connected with Britney tell us ... it has already been pre-approved.

If JLO gets 12 million on IDOL,brittney deserves way more then 15 million.,Plus why didnt someone offer Micheal Jackson these contracts...Damm he killed himself for 20 million and he could have sat and enjoyed.

They need to remove Simon Cowell first
Britney or Queen of England wouldn't attract any viewers as long as that pinhead cacky self-righteous hasbeen is in the panel.

So TMZ just posted a post where they say Britney hasn't signed her X Factor deal yet in the same story tells us they "BROKE" the story that she will receive 15 million for next season's X Factor. Way to play both sides TMZ, you guys would make good politicians

WHY can't she sign her own name still? Its kind of heartbreaking either way...she's either still bat**** crazy and being used for cash, or she's sane and under extreme control and making so many OTHER people money she'll never get complete control over HER life again. Po' Britney.

I love Brit, but her being a judge is a questionable move. She is too sweet to be a good judge she will not want to hurt anyones feelings.

I still don't understand why a grown woman with two children continues to need conservators. I think she will be a great addition to the show, but I still won't watch it because I can't take Simon's arrogance any longer.

This woman is utterly USELESS in the music industry. She has gotten by with THE HARD WORK OF OTHER PEOPLE. They write, produce and even have to auto-tune and synthesize her VOICE for her and she's sung LIVE what? 5 times?. She's been in the Industry over 10 years and she has written what? 10 songs? The ONLY reason Britney is where she is today is because of catchy songs she had NOTHING to do with making and for being a White Girl with a bubble butt, who teased people with her Sexuality by pretending to be a Virgin. So sick of this TALENTLESS, UNDESERVING HACK getting any type of credit. This woman is the LAZIEST, TALENTLESS BUM in the Industry and she gets $15 million to Judge people with ACTUAL TALENT? "Oh hey ya'll, to have the X-Factor, dress slutty, use your looks while everyone around you does everything else..you know...the HARD stuff while you just sit there and look pretty ya'll". Anyone saying Britney has the X-Factor ON HER OWN is delusional. Only X-Factor she has are the catchy songs she didn't create.

" Since she's under a conservatorship, Jamie Spears and Jason Trawick -- the co-conservators -- will be the ones to sign their John Han****s."

This sentence is just so wrong.

I do not think someone who cannot sign their own contract should be a judge of anyone. We are know Britney is fragile mentally. I think this will be too much exposure of her mental state and could make her do a backslide.
