L.A. Reid was the only survivor on X-Factor after Simon Cowell gave judges Paula Abdul, Nicole Scherzinger and host  Steve Jones the boot earlier this year.

But in the midst of the show’s second successful season, X-Factor Judge L.A. Reid told Access Hollywood that he won’t be back for the third.

Access Hollywood Reports:

L.A. Reid is leaving “The X Factor,” Access Hollywood can reveal.

“I have decided that I will not return to ‘The X Factor’ next year,” he told Access’ Shaun Robinson in an exclusive interview. “I have to go back and I have a company to run that I’ve kind of neglected and it saddens me a little bit, but only a little bit.”

“It was a nice break, it was a nice departure from what I’ve done for the past 20 years, but now I gotta go back to work,” he said.
