Now that L.A. has announced he will not return for another season of ‘ The X Factor,’ he’s suggesting Rihanna replace him on the show. Keep reading for all the exclusive details!

L.A. Reid has found his replacement for The X Factor — he wants none other than Rihanna to take his spot at the judge’s table, HollywoodLife.com is exclusively reporting.

We caught up with L.A. in Los Angeles at the X Factor finale on December 20 and asked who he would want to replace him on the show.

“I think Rihanna should fill my spot, so that I have a reason to watch,” L.A. said as he laughed.

That’s not a bad idea, but the question is — will Rihanna make time to be a judge on the show?

Rihanna had an incredible 2012 in terms of her career!

She was on the cover of numerous fashion magazines — both domestically and overseas, she participated in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, completed her 777 Tour, where she toured seven countries in seven days and she released her Unapologetic album in November.

Who knows — maybe she could incorporate X Factor into her hectic schedule, but only time will tell.

As of right now, RiRi is chillaxing in her native Barbados at an uber chic beach front penthouse with family and friends.

As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, the 24-year-old singer was spotted at the One Sandy Lane resort on Tuesday Dec. 19, in a tiny green and gold bikini as she sipped on what appeared to be a bottle of beer.

Rihanna took a quick flight to Barbados, where she was raised before coming to the United States to launch her music career, following her performance of “Diamonds” on the Dec. 18 finale of The Voice.

Rihanna always returns to Barbados for Christmas and was reported to be joined by Chris Brown before their split this week. Our sources tell HollywoodLife.com that Chris is still welcome to join her.

Sound off, HollywoodLifers. Will Rihanna join X Factor?
