As X Factor USA once again tries to retool it’s format and find a decent sized audience, it looks like yet another cast member gets the axe.
Though Mario Lopez has been asked to return for the show’s third season, Khloe Kardashian was not so lucky. A source tells the New York Post the Kartrashian sister has been let go from the struggling series.
This comes as both Britney Spears and record mogul L.A Reid have vacated their spots as judges on the show. The show saw a ratings dive of 20% from the beginning of the season, and hasn’t had near the same level of success it’s UK counterpart has had. Rumors have Simon Cowell attempting to bring back Cheryl Cole, who was originally supposed to judge the series first season, and even appeared in a couple of the initial episodes. Instead, the judges panel consisted of Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul, L.A. Reid and Cowell.
Both Abdul and Scherzinger were fired after the first season.
