Right on the heels of the news that Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones will not be returning to The X Factor, TMZ is reporting that Paula Abdul has also been fired from the Simon Cowell-produced singing competition.
General speculation is that Simon Cowell and the Fox Network were unhappy with X Factor's ratings, which did not approach those of established blockbuster American Idol.
