As much as we hate to repeat ourselves: Britney Spears is leaving The X Factor. The singer released this statement:

“I’ve made the very difficult decision not to return for another season. I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio. Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”

A Fox rep confirmed the news. For more details and analysis, see our story on the matter from yesterday.
