Britney Spears is getting fired from ‘The X Factor’

Some of you might remember this, but Britney Spears‘ boyfriend, Jason Trawick, decided that he would dump her as soon as The X Factor wrapped up, because I’m sure severing an unstable person from their base of support will end wonderfully. Except it turns out that now Britney is also reportedly getting the axe after this season ends, so get ready for another Brit meltdown. Via Us Weekly

“Britney will get the boot,” an insider tells Hot Stuff of the pop star, who joined the show in May, along with fellow newcomer Demi Lovato. “Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn’t working.” One reason? Spears’ $15 million contract, which sources say the low-energy mentor hasn’t earned. “They paid all that for her to say ‘amazing’ and offer half-claps,” a second insider tells Us. Adds a third source of show co-creator Simon Cowell, who is leading the charge to axe the performer: “He wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney.”

Well, if they want crazy Britney, I’m sure firing her right after her boyfriend dumps her should do the trick. Seriously, how could they possibly think this is a good idea? We love her, but Britney’s not the most stable person, and they’re jerking her around harder than a bored, lonely monkey.
