Britney Spears Left X Factor Because She Was "Uncomfortable," According To Simon Cowell!

| Filed under: TV NewsBritney SpearsEllen DeGeneresSimon CowellX Factor

When it comes to why Britney Spears left her judgeship on X Factor, the jury is finally out!

Speaking to funny gal Ellen DeGeneres, X Factor's Simon Cowell revealed the deets of Brit Brit's bye bye:

"I just think she found it very uncomfortable…I kind of booked someone who couldn't talk, which was a bit of problem, when you want someone to judge. She wasn't comfortable being negative, she didn't like it when the contestants spoke back to her, so she was just uncomfortable. I liked her. So we decided to change it this year, and I thought I'll work with three girls, because I like working with girls."

Simon, leave…Britney…alone!

JK, it seems that the parting was an amicable, wise decision for both parties, seeing as how Britney has found some new Work Bitch with a much seksier dress code (or lack thereof)!

Hmm we hope that Simon and Britney as friends are still tighter than his t-shirts! There doesn't seem to be any hard feelings, but who knows if their professional relationship is Toxic now!

Ch-ch-check out the interview, which airs tomorrow (ABOVE)!!!

    Awww, why does he laugh?! She's shy and that's sweet. I am as well.
    I hate negativity - I loved to learn this about her, I didn't know that!
    Poor dear, she just wasn't assertive. So yeah, leave her alone, Simon!!

    good thing her children have nannies to discipline them.

    I think Simon is being nice, between all the meds and not having a high intellect or vocabulary there was no way it would have worked.

    It REALLY bothers me how Ellen always laughs and does these things in a subtle way that's SO shady. She pretends to be this nice girl but she is a raging fake ass bitch. I really hate her.

    And Simon, please. You fat fucking loser. You should be happy Britney even agreed to work on your lame reality show. She is NOT assertive, she is a SOFTY and she was NOT comfortable insulting people like you made her do. If you think that's funny that someone has a heart and is sensitive then burn in hell. She has severe anxiety!

    He throws shade on both Xtina ('cos she didn't accept working with him) and Britney ('cos she left the show as it's just a horrible show for her to fit in and has more important things to do). He's such a sissy, he has to accept his show is a total disaster.

    Re: Mark – Awww I ♥ your comment, hon. I feel like I have a lot in common with her. I suffer from severe anxiety as well. She seems to be such a lovely girl inside and out. I really was offended by this - it's not funny. I never have liked him or that Ellen.
    Britney is too good for them anyways.

    Re: Mark – Ellen is a comedienne. She was laughing at Simons responses and the fact he could not remember anyones name. Ellen has a sense of humour clearly unlike yourself.

    Re: Mark – Sorry but the producers weren't paying her millions of dollars to be a softy. If she couldn't handle being assertive, then she, or more likely her people who make her decisions for her shouldn't have agreed to do the show.

    It's probably just as well, if she has bipolar or whatever, she needs to rest and concentrate on getting well and making her music when she is able.
