Are Simon Cowell and Britney Spears ex-friends now that she's left The X Factor?

New promos for season three of the hit FOX reality competition feature judge Simon making what seem to be pretty nasty slams against Brit's singing ability — and not just once, but twice!

In one clip, Simon tells a whiny male candidate singing Britney's Hit Me Baby One More Time that, "There was a moment there where I shut my eyes and I thought we had Britney Spears on stage."

New judge Kelly Rowland looked in, shocked, while Demi Lovato just laughed.

And in another promo from the Long Island auditions, Simon describes one woman's seriously nasal rendition of Toxic as sounding "a little bit too much like the original."

Britney left The X Factor over one season after her reported $15 million salary didn't translate to ratings.

Is her boss still bitter? Or is it just Simon's weird sense of humor? Watch the videos and let us know in the comments!
