Britney Spears Quits X-Factor?

"X Factor" judges

(KTVI) – There might be an empty seat that the X-Factor table as TMZ reports Britney Spears has quit.   The gossip site says Spears quit the show to avoid being fired by Simon Cowell.

Spears has been a judge on both seasons one and two.  TMZ reports Spears is working on an eighth album and plans to go on tour.

If the Britney report is true, that would leave two empty seats at the judges table after L.A. Reid announced his departure from the show in December.
