There’s another “X Factor” judges shake-up in the works.

L.A. Reid is set to leave the show after season 2 concludes next week.


“I have decided that I will not return to ‘The X Factor’ next year,” he tells “Access Hollywood.”

He continues, “I have to go back — I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected.”
