Kardashians deny Khloé X Factor firing

The Kardashian family denies that Khloé was fired from her post as co-host alongside Mario Lopez on US television singing competition X Factor after one season.

The New York Post reported that the 28-year-old reality star was booted by producers after presenting the TV singing competition alongside veteran host Mario Lopez for only one season.

Representatives for the Kardashians made it clear to Variety that no official decision has been made on who will be returning to anchor the programme next season.

If Khloé is in fact terminated from the X Factor, apparently this will support the series’ reputation “as a revolving door for big name talent.”

The starlet did not have any prior television hosting experience and had her share of stumbles during the gig.

Khloé won headlines during her X Factor debut when she dressed in a sheer blouse that exposed the star’s breasts under the harsh lighting of the Los Angeles sound stage.

She later made viewers squirm when she sat on Simon’s lap, asking him if he felt “excited” about the evening’s performances.

Khloé is not the first on-air talent to exit the programme after the last season.

X Factor judges Britney Spears and L.A. Reid announced last year they would not be returning.

The new judging panel has yet to be announced.
