Is Beyonce the new judge for X- factor USA?
Simon Cowell is said to have offered Beyonce an incredible $100m per year if she signs up as a judge for five seasons of X Factor USA.
The talent show boss is apparently keen to snag the world famous superstar in his bid to revive the talent show when it returns later this year.
There are currently two empty seats on the judging panel after Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger were axed.
MediaTakeOut.com claims to have spoken to a very reliable insider, citing it as the same person who revealed Jennifer Lopez was joining American Idol last year.
Such a sweet deal could make Beyonce one of the highest paid entertainers in the industry - although the $500m figure being touted by the website does seem somewhat inflated, even for a star as big as her.
The insider told MediaTakeOut.com: '[Cowell] wants a big name female star on the panel.
'Mariah [Carey] is good, but she's not that hot today. He wants Beyonce because that would immediately give him the bounce needed to beat American Idol.'
If Beyonce accepted it would make her and husband Jay-Z worth well over $1billion combined.
