L.A. Reid To Leave The X Factor In Order To Focus On His Record Label
L.A. Reid – who along with Simon Cowell is one of the original judges on The X Factor – has decided not to return to the competition next year.
The music mogul has explained that he made the decision to leave the show because he wants to focus on his role as chairman of Epic Records.
He told Access Hollywood:
‘I have decided that I will not return to The X Factor next year. It saddens me a little bit, but only a little bit. I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected.’
However, L.A. isn’t planning to say goodbye to Simon, who he considers a close friend.
I love Simon. We have a great relationship. We have fun together, we talk, we laugh and do bad things, we’re friends.
This was a nice break but now it’s time to get back to work.
Along with L.A’s departure, it was recently claimed Britney Spears’ future on the panel is also in doubt as producers are under pressure to cut costs.
