The 'insider' told Us Weekly: "Britney will get the boot. Producers wanted her for the long haul, but it isn't working."
A second source then got in on the action, claiming that Britters MAHOOSIVE paycheck (an eye-watering $15 million) could also be a reason for letting her go.
"They paid all that for her to say 'amazing' and offer half-claps," said the source.
No, we're not entirely sure what a 'half-clap' is either, but that's not really the point.
Yet ANOTHER source (gahd, is it bash Britney day or something?) said that Simon is unhappy with her performance as a judge, and claims: "he wanted crazy Britney, but he got boring Britney".
If Britney does get the boot, it would mean a massive change up for The X Factor USA juging panel - after LA Reid announced his departure from the show last month.
What do you make of all this?
