R&B singer Brandy has been replaced by Sharon Osbourne as a judge on the upcoming season of "America's Got Talent," claims TMZ.com.
A insider source at NBC tells TMZ that Brandy "is officially out" and the savvy music manager and queen bee of all rocker wives is in.
TMZ speculates that the December freeway crash that claimed a woman's life and the fact that legal complaints have been filed, and the district attorney is still in limbo over potential charges, if any are to be filed at all, are perhaps at the root of the decision.
NBC has previously announced that host Jerry Springer would fill in for a recovering heart patient, Regis Philbin as the show's host.
