Report: L.A. Reid To Exit 'X Factor', Will Not Return For Season 3 (Watch)

Published: Friday 14th Dec 2012 by TGJ


Well, it was good while it lasted.

Simon Cowell may have recently celebrated news of his hit show ‘X Factor US’ being picked up for a 3rd season, but now it appears that music mentor/fellow judge L.A. Reid won’t be joining him.

According to reports, Reid is looking to make an exit from the show.  And, while the fate of pop princesses Britney Spears and Demi Lovato are unknown, it is certain that Reid wants out.  The Epic mogul is said to have shared:

“Of course I will miss the show, in my opinion Simon attracts the best talent, but I’m looking forward to getting back to my core business and the responsibility of running Epic Records. “I have the utmost respect for Simon Cowell, he is the very best. I’m honored to have sat on the panel with such incredible talent.”
