Paula Abdul gets X-ed


How could you ever vote off this punim??

Looks like Simon Cowell has lost some love for his former “American Idol” co-host Paula Abdul. After personally recruiting her for the first season of “The X Factor,” Cowell let Abdul know her services would no longer be needed on the U.S. spin-off of the British reality show.

And he sent the message through the show’s lawyer, natch!

Seems like some people these days just don’t know the meaning of loyalty. Either that, or Cowell is just a power-hungry meanie, since he fired Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones as well.
