MUSIC mogul L.A. Reid is waving goodbye to the X Factor.
The Epic Records chairman — who along with Simon Cowell is one of the original judges on the US show — won’t return to the competition next year because he wants to focus on his day job.
“I have decided that I will not return to The X Factor next year,” he said. “It saddens me a little bit, but only a little bit. I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected.
“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.”
