LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Khloe Kardashian has been fired by The X Factor, claims the NY Post. Khloe has reportedly been fired from hosting the upcoming The X Factor 2013 season. But her co-host, Mario Lopez, has reportedly been asked back.
Khloe Kardashian and The X Factor have yet to comment about a new report issued today in the NY Post. But the newspaper claims “They are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back, but not Khloe”. Khloe, however, is the latest in a series of hosts and judges not invited back from the show season to season.
The X Factor did not deliver the type of ratings the show had expected for its first season. So the show underwent a dramatic change for the judges and host before season two. Now the show, still uncomfortable with its team, is making changes against.
Judge LA Reid reportedly does not want to return to the show. And Britney Spears, who got paid on of the biggest salaries of the broadcast season last year, has departed from the show as well.
But the Post claims that a familiar face might return. “Meanwhile, Brit singer Cheryl Cole, who was unceremoniously dumped as a judge last year, is in talks to return to the show — possibly as part of a judging panel that would be comprised of Cowell and three younger women.” Cole filed a lawsuit last year for $2.3 million after being fired before season one.
