Simon Cowell Cleans House At “X Factor,” Fires Steve Jones, Nicole Scherzinger, And Paula Abdul?

In what is being deemed as a “bloodbath,” host Steve Jones and judges Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger will not be returning to “The X Factor USA.” Simon Cowell reportedly gave all three the boot after making the decision to clean house, according to the Hollywood Reporter. However, there has been no official confirmation as to what actually took place, with some media outlets reporting that it was an “amicable split.” Only Cowell and L.A. Reid are said to be returning for the second season of the show. American Idol executive producer Nigel Lythgoe weighed in on the news, tweeting: “Shocked to see Simon has fired Paula Abdul, Nicole and Steve from the X-Factor.”
