'X Factor' Lies

Simon & Britney's Houses

WERE FAKES

EXCLUSIVE

1011_xfactor_VideoLaunch2
"X Factor" producers tried to pull the wool over your eyes last night -- because TMZ has learned Simon Cowell and Britney Spears' mansions on the show weren't their homes at all ... in fact, one actually belongs to MLB star Alex Rodriguez.

In case you missed last night's episode, groups of contestants were invited to perform at four different homes around the country -- each allegedly belonging to one of the show's four judges.

But it was ALL A LIE -- "Simon's" Miami pad actually belongs to A-Rod. The baseball star listed the home in August for $38,000,000, but it's still on the market. Simon's real house is in Beverly Hills.

1011_simons_house_PCNIt's unclear who really owns the Malibu home Britney appeared in last night, but one thing's for certain -- Britney does NOT own that Malibu home. Her real home is in Calabasas, many miles away.

1011_britneys_house_PCNAs for the other two homes -- we can't say for SURE if they're bogus, but we're betting none of the judges wanted their real homes on public display.

Sorry to burst your celeb real estate bubble.

Celebrities Suck    

I almost forgot to mention...

great example regarding the mariah carey and nicki minaj incident now that is a scam. Why? because they scripted the fight for the brainwashed people that fell for it so that it can attract viewers because they know how those that are brainwashed enjoy watching KOZ. And guess their ratings will go sky high thanks to those that are brainwashed and believe their lies. #fact

I wouldn't want my private home on display either. But you don't need to lie about it.

Love the Santa and snowman in front of Britney's house. I'm betting that photo was taken sometime in June.

Ummm, pretty sure they didn't say they were the actual homes of the stars, they said they were the homes for the contestants of the stars, and labeled them "Britney's home" etc to designate which contestants went where.

No story here.

Of course they aren't. The studio isn't going to risk the security of their real homes. I can't imagine anyone thinking that they were really their homes.

Brittany looks like she was ran over by a Ford F-150 and then set on fire. Hideous.

From the 10 minuites I have watched of this show, everything seems to be fake. The comments portion looks so staged. And Cowell looks like he wants to take a lot of the spotlight.


This show is doomed.

Totally irrelevant. Doesn't everyone know by now that a television is a cut-and-paste "show" machine? In other news, the full moon on Survivor wasn't really full that night.

This is no surprise. And anyone with a brain should know high profile celebrities like Britney and Simon aren't gonna want the viewing public to know where they really live, let alone have all those "dirty people" trudging through their homes.

Derrr, security reasons? So TMZ goes ahead and blasts where ARod's house is for all the angry baseball fans.

Damn Britney's house is huge. That is just for showing off. No one needs a house that damn big.
