Reps for the show and Fox TV had no comment.

In March, Simon Cowell, who is the show’s executive producer and head judge, said he was “flattered” that Spears was interested in joining the show, but revealed little about the negotiations.

“I’ve learned a big lesson,” he said at the time. “Keep your mouth shut. Don’t give it all away.”

Cowell and L.A. Reid will also sit at the judges’ table. Spears will help fill the open spots created when Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul left the show.
