    Paula Abdul did not get fired from American Idol. The producers made Paula Abdul an initial offer to be a judge on the show that Paula Abdul didn't like, then they rejected a counter-offer from the judge and made yet another offer to her but rather than responding, Paula Abdul made a statement on Twitter saying that she was leaving the show. Before Paula Abdul announced that she was leaving the show the singer/choreographer's new manager named David Sonenberg warned the month before that she might not return to the show and unnamed sources close to her told the NY Times newspaper that she had said that she felt under appreciated by the show's producers. After Paula Abdul left American Idol she became a judge on X-Factor US years later but then she got fired from absurd partying along with firing Nicole Scherzinger and Steve Jones from not connecting with the audience which in my opinion think it was because they wanted more viewers.
