Paula Abdul Also Not Returning to X Factor!

Talk about cleaning house!

Sources tell E! News that Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones aren’t the only ones not coming  back to X Factor next season.

Believe it or not, Fox has informed Simon  Cowell‘s longtime friend Paula  Abdul she won’t be needed for the series’ next installment.

“She found out today,” says a show source. “At this point, the only ones  staying are Simon and L.A. Reid.”

Another source confirms to E! News that both Paula and Nicole were not  renewed, “Simon wants to take the show in a different direction,” says the  insider.

Might Paula ultimately be brought in? Is this just a negotiating ploy? Our  sources both say no, that they are moving on and, a source says, “the plan is to part ways amicably.”

Nigel Lythgoe was also shocked by the news, tweeting, “Shocked to see Simon has fired Paula Abdul,  Nicole and Steve from the X-Factor.”

And then there were two.
