X Factor judge L.A. Reid has decided to QUIT the competition show, crediting his original job as the main reason behind his decision.
Being with Simon Cowell since Season 1, he insists working relationships have nothing to do with this. In fact, it sounds like he’s even gonna miss him.
Reid broke the news by saying:
“I have decided that I will not return to The X Factor next year. I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected. It saddens me a little bit, but only a little bit. I love Simon. We have a great relationship. We have fun together, we talk, we laugh, we do bad things, we’re friends.”
As chairman and CEO of Epic Records, he has to prioritize a certain way, and it seems like he’s ready to get back to it 24/7!
