Britney is this close to signing with X Factor now that both parties agreed to paying B $15 million, reports Eonline.com.
“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. “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.”
Jason, who’s said to become Brit’s conservator, will be there for Britney every step of the way. Literally. He’ll be a producer on the show.
“Jason is expected to be there every day Britney is on set. He is her rock and will help guide her through the process. He is the person she trusts the most,” said a second source.
Even though X Factor and Fox reps won’t confirm or deny Britney’s role, one show insider says:
“this is an exciting time for [Britney]. It’ll be a fun project and she is welcoming the chance to mentor up-and-coming artists. She loves the idea of helping emerging talent get the recognition they deserve and is really looking forward to being on the show.”
“She gets on very well with Simon. He has worked hard at persuading her to start this new chapter in her career. She is an icon, and the perfect example of what having the X Factor means.”
Brit’s also excited to be a part of something special her fans can enjoy.
“She’s really looking forward to the project and being able to connect with her fans.”
“The decision of who will join Simon, Britney and L.A. is yet to be made. Simon really wanted Britney confirmed first. Once she signs, he can make the final preparations.”
