Has 'X Factor's' Astro Already Signed With LA Reid, Not Jay Z?

Ever since talented 15-year-old rapper Astro was eliminated from X Factor, rumors have swirled that Jay Z has already signed him to a record contrast, but here’s what Astro and LA Reid told us at the X Factor finale!

Rapping, songwriting Astro couldn’t have been more memorable as an X Factor contestant and again in a short solo in last night’s, Dec. 22nd, finale. But the big question is: has Jay Z already swooped in and signed him to a record deal?

Seriously, Astro laughed when HollywoodLife.com asked him about the rumor last night. “Yeah, I don’t speak on that! I don’t say anything on the legal side. I don’t know what you’re talking about,” he responded in an exclusive conversation with us. Then he chuckled again.

Astro was acting so suspiciously, we could swear he had a Jay Z deal, but then we talked to LA Reid.

“Astro’s future is solid. He is already recording,”LA Reid revealed.

When he was asked about the Jay Z rumors, he insisted they weren’t true. “No, no, no no! Nobody is going to sign with anyone except Simon and me! All the contestants are in great hands,” he declared.

Well, that’s fantastic news for us fans of Astro, Josh, Chris Rene, Rachel, Drew and more! We want them all to have their dreams come true and have big careers!
