Britney Spears Signs A Pact With The Devil (aka Simon Cowell)

Simon's kinda gal

Serial celeb-groomer Simon Cowell has now plied his latest victim – Britney Spears – with enough money and sweet nothings to secure her for The X Factor USA.

The contract has been signed (presumably in blood) and the Womanizer singer is now confirmed to appear alongside Cowell and L.A. Reid when the series begins later this year.

According to reports by E! Online, we’re talking $15million (£9.3m) for a few month’s work.

A super-secret inside source has said: “The contract is signed. There’s been a lot of back and forth over the past few weeks as they negotiated the small details, but she’s on. It’s all completed and Britney is beyond excited.

“She’s ready for this. She can’t wait to sit down next to Simon at the judges’ table and give this everything she’s got.

There is no official confirmation from either Britters or X Factor USA as yet, but this source seems dead excited: “[Britney] is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well. This is the perfect next stage in her career.

“Both Britney and Simon are very excited to work togetherâ€?, the source added.

Having booted off two of his previous judges, there is still one gaping hole left on the panel. Katy Perry, Demi Lovato and Chaka Khan have all been put forward but we suppose it depends on who made it to Simon’s hotel suite first…
