Was Khloé Kardashian Odom fired from "The X Factor"? Rumors have been swirling about the newbie co-host ever since the New York Post reported her dismissal Monday.

The tabloid quoted a show insider as saying, "They are asking Mario (Lopez) to come back, but not Khloé."

However, an "X Factor" spokesperson told The Clicker, "The producers have not yet made the talent decisions for this year."

And Khloé's reality star sibling, Kim Kardashian, flat-out denied the report.

"A lot of people say a lot of incorrect things on the daily," she told TMZ's cameras Monday night.

With or without Khloé, the struggling reality competition will see a huge shake-up in its third season. First-time judge Britney Spears officially announced her departure last month, while two-season judge L.A. Reid confirmed his own exit in December.

The critical response to Khloé's hosting skill has been mixed, with even Fox reality chief Mike Darnell offering a lukewarm review at last month's TCA Winter Press Tour.

"I think the hosts were OK," he told reporters. "I think Mario knows how to be a host. I think Khloé was new. And I thought for someone new she did OK. She never hosted before."

The question is: Will she host again?
