Reports are suggesting that Britney Spears is thisclose to signing a $15 million payday to be a judge on X Factor!
“Both camps were back and forth on the money but now they have finally come to agreement on the fee,” says one insider with intimate knowledge of the pending deal 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.”
Could this really be happening? To me, it’d be a dream come true! And not only would the position be beneficial to Britney’s career, but it’ll coincide with her role as a mother. Besides a few traveling dates for auditions, Britney will be rooted in Los Angeles during the duration of the series. Spears will be able to spend the most amount of time with her kids while keeping herself in the limelight.
There are also a number of celebrity moms who have succeeded in such positions. Take a look at those other moms below and see how much they earned!
Christina Aguilera for ‘The Voice 1 of 6Christina earns $225,000 an episode for 'The Voice.'
Jennifer Lopez for ‘American Idol’ 2 of 6Jennifer gets a reported $12 million for her role on 'Idol.'
Nicole Richie for ‘Fashion Star’ 3 of 6While 'Fashion Star' is in its inaugural season, it seems to be a hit for NBC.
Jessica Simpson for ‘Fashion Star’ 4 of 6Jessica filmed her role before she was pregnant, but if a second season is picked up, the job will be a good fit for a mom.
Janice Dickinson for ‘America’s Next Top Model’ 5 of 6Janice was once "the Simon Cowell" of ANTM, but a spat with host Tyra Banks got her booted from the show.
Heidi Klum for ‘Project Runway’ 6 of 6Heidi Klum is the host/judge on 'Project Runway.' Pulling double duty AND getting to stay in the location of her children all year round! Sounds good to us.
