Simon Cowell Woos Britney Spears To Be An X Factor Judge!

It wasn’t too long ago that Britney Spears was judged mentally incapable of handling her own finances, however, she certainly seems to have pulled her life together in the last year.

Now, the word is that Spears is close to becoming a judge on Simon Cowell’s X Factor U.S.

I hear that Spears’ fiancé and agent, Jason Trawick is currently negotiating a contract believed to be worth a whopping $10 million, and that’s more than J-Lo earns on American Idol! Oo-er…

According to sources, if talks go to plan then a deal could be finalized as soon as next week.

In January, Cowell dramatically fired judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger, which means if Spears joins L.A. Reid as a judge, there will still be one more spot to be filled, with LeAnn Rimes as the frontrunner after Janet Jackson turned down a big money offer to appear.

‘That’ Cowell sure knows how to pick ‘em… If she accepts the offer, then it’ll be interesting to see how Spears copes with live television on a weekly basis… Surely, that is one potential worry crossing the minds of network bosses, especially with such large megabucks on the table…

So Britney, if you do take the job, NO trademark meltdowns allowed!
