Demi Lovato has reached a milestone in her ongoing recovery from anorexia, bulimia and drug addiction: She’s a leading contender for one of the vacant seats on The X Factor judging panel.
“Lovato is the front-runner for the fourth seat on the X Factor judge’s panel, but she hasn’t gotten an offer yet…”
It’s been a whirlwind few years for Demi. After a headline-making emotional breakdown that sent her to rehab in October 2010, the teen pop star recently allowed MTV’s cameras to document the aftermath of her battle against food, self-mutilation and cocaine.
With former Factor pundits Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger sent to the unemployment line, celebrity informants say “Circus” songstress Britney Spears is also vying for the opportunity to fill one of the two recently vacated judges chairs.
Brit’s reportedly made several “serious inquiries” about hashing out a deal to join the second season of the struggling series — which has failed to draw the mega-ratings of its singing show challengers, including American Idol and The Voice.
The X Factor returns for a second season on Fox in September.
