Will she? Won't she?
Speculation on whether or not Britney Spears will join The X Factor for its second season continues, and although Simon Cowell and L.A. Reid addressed the topic (vaguely) during a conference last month, we were still left wondering the same questions.
So what's the hold up?
Money, of course.
A source confirms to E! News that both camps have "been negotiating for some time," and it seems to be mainly on dollar amounts. Our source says Britney was offered $10 million to do the show, but she's holding out for $16 million.
That's her number and she's stickin' to it.
Do you think X Factor execs will give Spears what she wants?
