Pop star Britney Spears has reportedly been offered $10 million to judge the US version of The X Factor, but sources say she is holding out for more.
The Hold It Against Me singer's fiance and manager Jason Trawick is said to have "been negotiating for some time", with executives for the talent search show, Femalefirst reported.
Spears, 30, has been offered the huge sum to appear on the second series of the show, which returns later this year. The first run of The X Factor was judged by show boss Simon Cowell, L A Reid, Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul, although the latter two were subsequently axed after it failed to achieve the ratings Cowell had hoped.
Cowell is said to have initially approached Britney, and recently said he was "fascinated" by her and think she would be ideal for the show.
Janet Jackson was also rumoured to have been offered the judging role, but turned it down because of touring commitments.
