There's a battle brewing over Brit Brit!
Britney Spears has one album to go before the end of her recording contract with Jive Records, and various record execs are already anticipating a bidding war for the chart- topping pop star!
Epic Records chairman and fellow X-Factor judge LA Reid is intent on signing the Grammy winner, as is former Jive head Barry Weiss, who helped grow the "Toxic" singer's career and counts Justin Bieber, Kanye West, and Mariah Carey as artists.
Desperate for his label to have a charting artist, LA Reid is reportedly trying to woo the pop princess through their growing friendship on the singing competition. Weiss, meanwhile, is counting on his long history with Spears to prevail.
"I have a 15-year history with Britney and would love to be reunited with her," Weiss told THR.
The 30-year-old has yet to make any decisions, but the ultimate call will be made with the help of co-conservator fiance Jason Trawick, father Jamie Spears, and manager Larry Rudolph.
Who are you going to choose Queen B?!
