Khloe Kardashian

E! Is Stumbling Block

For Hosting 'X Factor'

EXCLUSIVE

0919_khloe_kardashian_xfactor_e_logo_articleKhloe Kardashian may actually be a little too popular for her own good ... because we've learned E! is throwing up roadblocks in the negotiations for Khloe to host "X Factor."

Multiple sources connected to the negotiations tell TMZ ... "X Factor" producers cannot sign Khloe to the show unless E! gives permission  -- exclusivity is part of the Kardashian's contract with the network.

We're told the problem isn't so much that E! doesn't want Khloe to do Simon Cowell's show ... it's that Khloe would have to promote the program by spending a lot of time doing interviews, social media and making appearances, and E! is worried it might dilute Khloe's impact on their reality shows and also create time conflicts.

One source directly connected with the negotiations tells TMZ ... it looks like both sides will reach an agreement and Khloe will be able to host "X Factor," but the source added, "I wouldn't bet my house on it."

We are told, in the event that Khloe's deal falls apart, they would probably pick Mario Lopez as the second choice, but "X Factor" has its sights set on Khloe as a single host.

I would much rather see Mario Lopez be host. He is already a proven host.

WTF? She has no talent why in the world would she host a singing competition. How many albums has she sold? What does she do besides have cameras follow her around all day? Ridiculous

I thought she was already doing it. That's why I told my wife remove X Factor from recording. I'll not watch a Kardashian. Kim put me off all of them. Just me.

Go get your DNA so you can confirm that we already know, Robert is not your dad. Problem is, your mom doesnt know who your dad is because she cheated on him so much.
