It has been confirmed that Khloe Kardashian will not return as a host for The X Factor USA next season.
Rumors that Kardashian had been fired from the reality talent competition spread earlier this year, but the reality star remained tight-lipped.
Today, the show’s creator Simon Cowell released a statement about how “thrilled” he is that Mario Lopez will be returning as a host for the third season.
Network executives made comment on Kardashian’s noticeable absence from Cowell’s statement, saying,”Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to co-host The X Factor. We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors.”
It is unclear who will replace Kardashian as a co-host.
