“Unfortunately, there is no X Factor USA without Simon Cowell,” Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company added in the statement. “But we understand and support his decision to focus on the international formats and on the next phase of his personal life. We wish him the very best, and it’s our sincere hope that we work together again soon.”
