I can't count on my fingers how many times Rihanna and Chris Brown have been rumored to be dating, or back together, or in contact of any kind. This however may be one of the craziest rumors of them all? Simon Cowell is literally considering hiring on both Rihanna AND Chris Brown as judges for next seasons "X-Factor"? This would sure fire up some hype for the show, but will it turn into ratings or cause too much negative attention? What do you think? Let me know -- Maynard

"The Sun reports that Cowell loves RiRi’s vivacious personality in addition to being a fan of her music, and he thinks she can save the struggling ratings on the Fox series, be it here or across the pond. With L.A. Reid and possibly Britney Spears leaving after this season, he may need a big name to prop the show up.
“Simon is a huge admirer of Rihanna and knows she’s star quality,” a source told the tab. “As well as bringing an aura to the panel thanks to her current standing in music, she is also feisty and will make great TV. Simon loves these sort of characters.”
But it doesn’t stop there. A source added that Cowell is also considering Brown for a part on the panel. (Considering his recent excursions with ex Karrueche Tran, that may not end well for anyone involved.) “The U.S. ‘X Factor’ has improved on the first season’s ratings but it’s got some way to go to reach Simon’s expectations,” the source dished. “Adding Chris to the panel will certainly create a talking point.”"
