The unimaginable has happened! Simon Cowell has been rejected!
Rita Ora has declined Simon's ultra exclusive invitation to join the X Factor UK judging panel next season and it'll cost her about $1.6 million.
Instead of sitting high and comfy between Louis Walsh and Sharon Osbourne, Rita is wayyyy more interested in working on her own career.
Besides her role in the super anticipated 50 Shades Of Grey, Rita's new album is coming out this summer, so it's no surprise she would rather not be distracted from her plans for U.S. domination.
Regardless of the reasoning, the thought of anyone saying "no" to Simon is HIGHlarious — especially when we imagine it with Rita's sass! HA!
Oh well! Guess Simon will just have to find another songbird to replace Nicole Scherzinger.
