Nicole Scherzinger Settles For 5 Per Cent Of Britney's Salary
Simon Cowell replaced the 'Try With Me' singer with Britney in the United States (who is reportedly on $15 million per year), leading the former Pussycat Dolls star to seek work in the UK. It is understood she has agreed to sit alongside Gary Barlow, Tulisa Contostavlos and Louis Walsh on the singing show, though has settled for just 750k, after initially being offered 500k. A source told The Mirror, "Nicole's management have negotiated a good deal. It's a great salary considering most of the auditions have already been done by special guests". A separate insider told The Sun, "Nicole has played the long game on this. She was offered a 500,000 [pound] deal a week ago but kept her counsel and managed to get this bumped up by another 250,000 [pound]. She is thrilled with the offer and is expected to sign in the next day and be in place as the fourth permanent judge by Monday". Though the salary is still a substantial amount of money, it still only represents 5 per cent of the lump sum Britney Spears is taking home across the Atlantic.
Filming on the UK series of the show has already begun, with producers using stand-in celebrity judges in each city. Singer Anastacia was a recent hit with the Glasgow audience.
