Paula Abdul issued a statement about leaving X Factor. She was fired from the show after one season on Monday, Jan. 30.
Her statement read as follows:
"Yes, it's true; I won't be returning to X Factor next season. I've learned through my longevity in this industry that business decisions often times override personal considerations. Simon and I, along with Fox and Fremantle, have been communicating about this for a while now, and I have absolute understanding of the situation. Simon is, and will remain a dear friend of mine and I've treasured my experience working this past season with my extended family at Fox and Fremantle. I want nothing more than for X Factor to exceed ALL of their wildest dreams. This truly has been a blessing and I am most grateful."
Paula is a class act and that statement proves it. She truly took the high road.
