It’s not exactly been a great week for Britney Spears.
Amid rumours that Simon Cowell was to fire her from The X-Factor USA because of her ‘boring feedback’ and ‘failure to connect with contestants,’ the troubled star has decided to jump before she’s pushed by confirming that she has left the Fox talent show in a statement released yesterday:
“I’ve made the very difficult decision not to return for another season.
“I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio.
“Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”
Not only that, but in another statement to People magazine, Spears has also announced that she has split up with fiancé Jason Trawick after three years together:
“Jason and I have decided to call off our engagement. I’ll always adore him and we will remain great friends.”
Let’s hope for Britney’s sake that the ‘bad things happen in threes’ rule doesn’t apply to her.
