Britney Spears has reached an out of court settlement in her sexual harassment lawsuit, RadarOnline.com has confirmed.

The X Factor judge was accused of flashing her genitalia at Fernando Flores, as well as abusing her kids, Sean and Jayden James, by the former security guard in court papers filed more than two years ago.

But now Britney has cut a deal, which is said to be a modest settlement, to make the case disappear.

In the legal documents, Flores alleged Britney was a “naked menace” to work for and would intentionally drop her cigarette lighter when Fernando was with her, bend over to pick it up and expose her “uncovered genitals.”

Britney, 30, has always denied the claims but decided to settle, with an amount that’s believed to fall short in covering Flores’ legal costs.

However, because the Till the World Ends singer is still under conservatorship due to an unnamed medical condition, the deal won’t be approved until the probate court gets a chance to sign off on the papers, which should be a formality.

Meanwhile, fans will be able to see Britney in action tomorrow as an all new season of The X Factor kicks off.

In an interview on Tuesday’s The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Britney claims to have modeled her “nasty” judge approach on The X Factor honcho Simon Cowell!

“I used constructive criticism. I learned from the best,” she told the host.

“I prefer to be honest. I think that's the best way to go. I wouldn't want to be told something and then waste seven years of my life. I feel like it's the thing to do.”

“I'm not disagreeing with you. I've been doing it for years,” replied Cowell, who joined Britney for the interview.

And Simon, 52, spoke of an incident on a recent conference call. He said of Britney: “I've never heard someone say no to contestants so quickly in my entire life.”
