Demi Lovato Leaving 'X Factor' After This Season

Demi Lovato is exiting her role as a judge on The X Factor, People reports.

The 21-year-old entertainer reportedly wants to focus on her music career.

“She plans to spend next year completely focused on her music,” a source told the mag. “She had a great run and a good time.”

Demi is gearing up for her Neon Lights headlining tour, which kicks off on February 9th in Vancouver, Canada. She will be joined by Cher Lloyd, Little Mix, and Fifth Harmony.

    I’ll wait to hear Demi actually say or tweet she is leaving before I express an opinion.

    This season was boring, but I was hoping she would come back. She is the best part of the show.

    Gosh what a tremendous loss. How will she pay for her drug habit now?

    She was the best part of the show. She’s the one who brought me to X-Factor instead of Idol. Her interactions with Simon are hilarious and now also with Kelly. Without her, even if XF is renewed, I won’t be watching.

    @Jason: It’ll be easy since she has none. She’s clean and has been for 2 + years so stop being such a jackass. What has she ever done to you do deserve this snark?

    @EvaneSam: You don’t know WHAT she’s hooked on, so don’t pretend you do. You didn’t know she was addicted before, did you? Don’t sit there and call me names when you’re just as ignorant as anyone else. You just go away and let the grown ups talk for a while, okay? You’re dismissed.

    I really just think it’s insensitive to joke about something like that. Only someone who hasn’t any personal experience would
