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.

ummm?!    

It's sad that a 30 year old woman is capable of working/making big money, but she isn't allowed to
even sign her name to a contract.

I wouldn't be surprised if each of her co-conservators stood beside her during the show and whispered to her what to say and how to vote, so she doesn't get stressed out and go postal on the show. :-/

Please sign her! It's like the old joke when the truck driver is going down a steep hill with no brakes. "I'm going to wake old Joe up in the sleeper, he's never seen a bad wreck."

Guess Simon was looking for another doormat like Paula to fill the vacancy. This is beyond a poor choice. She cannot even manage her own affairs and they want her to mentor newbies? You thought Paula and Nicole were bad? You ain't seen nothing yet!

I find it sad and awkward that she can't handle
her own business deals, doesn't even sign her name on the damn contract. Is she that dependent ?

If only her dad and boyfriend can ink the deal, why don't they judge idol then. She isn't well enough to even make her own deals, so please go away!

I don't understand why X-Factor would pay her $15 mil to be a judge. She isn't worth $15 mil or $15 dollars. I she cannot sing and dance and would be the worst mentor for any future performer. Simon Cowell & X-Factor can find a better judge.
