Nicki Minaj is now an ex factor when it comes to Simon Cowell’s “X Factor.”

Previous reports suggested that the Harajuku Barbie had flown out to Los Angeles to speak with Cowell about a potential judging gig on his hit show, but new reports state that was merely speculation.

Any information about a spot on the show, however, is news to Minaj’s ears.

“There’s nothing going on with [‘X Factor’],” a TMZ source now reports.

So far the only confirmed judge is former Island Def Jam chairman L.A. Reid.

Jessica Simpson and Paula Abdul were among the rumored candidates for the judge’s positions … but so far, no word on where they stand with the show.
