'X Factor' Lies

Simon & Britney's Houses


10/11/2012 7:45 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

"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.

If they lie about one thing they lie about everything. The entire show is FAKE.....even the girl who won last year and did nothing but a pepsi ad was fake! SIMON is FAKE. Whats not fake is that they spent 60+ million on this show and its pulling in less viewers than Survivor....thats the truth! CANCEL IT

Britney's house is not in Calabasas. It is in Westlake Village at Sherwood Country Club which is in a totally different county than Calabasas.

Demi's loft space has been used in a number of reality series. Two lesser-known ones were ABC's THE ONE: MAKING A MUSIC STAR (which I sadly worked on) and SYFY'S WHO WANTS TO BE A SUPERHERO? It's in a seedy section of downtown Los Angeles, not far from Skid Row, but it's perfectly suited for that kid of production. My guess is they will not show the outside of the real place!

I really like the show but not impressed with Britney Spears. Her comments are not any thing,she always has a frown on her face and her appearance is unacceptable. Send her packing after this season.

No matter were the Houses were fakes its matter that The Voice talent this year were uter crap, comparing the X-factor 2012.
Production quality, audio mixing, videography, video editing, composition of sequences its just marvelous comparing to the amateurish American Idol or the shallow Voice.

Miami house was the great visual object which was ideal for the groups category.

Why in the hell would they want to use their real homes? So they can have someone shoot up their home because they didn't make the cut? Come on now be logical. Sh*t, I wouldn't want my real house (real address) to be used either.
