Kim Kardashian denies Khloe Kardashian was fired from 'X Factor' USA

An insider claimed: "[Producers] are asking Mario [Lopez] to come back [to host], but not Khloe."

Kim was asked by TMZ at LAX on Monday (February 18) if there was any truth to rumours that Khloe has been axed from The X Factor.

"A lot of people say a lot of incorrect things on the daily," Kim declared, adding: "[There's] probably nothing [true about the rumours]."

A published report released this week also indicated that Cheryl Cole - who was fired from The X Factor in season one - is in talks to return to the series as a judge as part of a settlement of her $2.3m lawsuit against executives.

Highly-placed sources revealed that The X Factor's third season could feature Simon Cowell and three female judges following the departures of LA Reid and Britney Spears from the Fox show.

Season two X Factor judge Demi Lovato has expressed an interest in returning and has also tipped Lady GaGa as a possible replacement for Spears.

The X Factor returns to Fox later in 2013.
