Khloe Kardashian won't return as American X Factor judge


Reality television star Khloe Kardashian will not return as a judge on the American X Factor.

Fox said that while Mario Lopez is returning this autumn as host of Simon Cowell's music competition series, Kardashian will not be joining him.

Cowell's series, which has never quite met ratings expectations, is in the midst of turnover with its judging panel, too. Cowell and Demi Lovato will be returning, but Britney Spears and record producer Antonio "L.A." Reid left and have not been replaced yet.

The show starts its third season in the Autumn.
