Report: Cowell Wants to Fire Spears

Guess Britney wasn’t enough of a slave for Simon. Simon Cowell reportedly wants to fire Britney Spears from The X-Factor, sources told Us Weekly on Thursday. “Britney will get the boot,” one source said, indicating the singer had not offered enough energy to the show to warrant her $15 million contract. Another source said it even more harshly: Cowell “wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”
