TMZ reports that Spears and Co. are “very close” to signing, but a few tiny kinks have to be worked out first. Spears is said to be super into the deal, but that she can’t sign the paperwork herself since she’s still under a conservatorship. Co-conservators Jamie Spears and fiancee Jason Trawick will put pen to paper and seal in her contract for her. The deal is expected to be finalized this weekend and will require permission from Spears’ conservatorship judge, but sources say the deal has already been preapproved.
Spears and ‘X Factor’ producers agreed that her presence at the Fox Upfronts is “essential” to promote the show. Spears will likely make her debut for the show’s promos on Monday, where the fall lineup for the network will be unveiled.
Sources close to Brit-Brit said that she’s more than excited for the job, which she may hold alongside Demi Lovato. “She’s ready for this. She can’t wait to sit down next to Simon at the judges’ table and give this everything she’s got. She is excited about showing the world that she can do this, and do this well. This is the perfect next stage in her career. Both Britney and Simon are very excited to work together.”
We’re very excited to watch!
