Khloe Kardashian has gotten the ax from the "X."

The reality starlet will not resume hosting duties for the upcoming third season of FOX's "The X Factor," a spokesperson for the competition show confirmed yesterday. She worked on the show for one season.

"Khloe Kardashian will not be returning to host 'The X Factor,'" the spokesperson said, adding: "We really enjoyed working with her and wish her all the best in her future endeavors."

No official reason was given.

Meanwhile, Kardashian's co-host, Mario Lopez, is back for Season 3.

"We're coming back stronger and better than ever and I'm excited to check out all the new talent," Lopez said in a statement yesterday.

Judge-wise, show creator Simon Cowell and Demi Lovato are in, but Britney Spears and L.A. Reid are out.
