BRITNEY Spears will soon be laughing all the way to the bank after agreeing a multi-million dollar deal to join the X Factor judging panel.
The singer will apparently get $15 million to appear alongside Simon Cowell and LA Reid on the TV talent show.
“Both camps were back and forth on the money but now they have finally come to agreement on the fee,” a source told E! News.
“That was the big sticking point and now, thankfully, it’s been sorted. All they need to do now is work out the smaller points. The fact the money is now set, means that there is nothing stopping this from becoming a reality.”
Sources say Britney’s fiance, Jason Trawick, will become a producer on the show.
“Jason is expected to be there every day Britney is on set. He is her rock and will help guide her through the process. He is the person she trusts the most,” a source said.
“This is an exciting time for [Britney]. It’ll be a fun project and she is welcoming the chance to mentor up-and-coming artists. She loves the idea of helping emerging talent get the recognition they deserve and is really looking forward to being on the show.
“She gets on very well with Simon. He has worked hard at persuading her to start this new chapter in her career. She is an icon, and the perfect example of what having the X Factor means.
“She’s really looking forward to the project and being able to connect with her fans.”
“The decision of who will join Simon, Britney and L.A. is yet to be made. Simon really wanted Britney confirmed first. Once she signs, he can make the final preparations.”
