Britney might've jumped the gun when she told reporters on Monday she'd "definitely" be back for next season of The X Factor.
A Fox insider tells the Examiner: "The only judge who's guaranteed to return right now is Simon. The network doesn't decide which of the other judges are coming back until the end of the year, when the ratings for the show's entire season can be evaluated."
Brit's $15 million salary took a toll on the show's entire budget. Execs behind-the-scenes are against her returning for next season because of the low ratings and must make cuts.
This isn't the first time Britney's rushed a deal. Cowell admitted Britney agreed to judge on the show weeks before her managers closed the deal.
See ya on tour, Brit?
