Even as reports to the contrary continue to surface, Simon Cowell’s representative is denying that Cowell has chosen Paula Abdul as a judge on "The X Factor," according to The Hollywood Reporter.

"Nothing is set, and Paula is one of many people Simon is talking to. He’s said the same thing many times, including on the radio last week. There’s nothing new," the representative said, according to the story.

As previously reported, Cowell told Deadline.com that he’s serious about getting Abdul as a judge on the new show. Some reports have taken the news a step further, saying it’s a done deal and Abdul has the job.
