Troubled R&B singer Brandy has confirmed reports she is leaving TV show America's Got Talent and is being replaced by Sharon Osbourne.

The "Have You Ever" singer, 28, joined actor/singer David Hasselhoff and English journalist Piers Morgan on judging panel of the first season of the NBC show.

However, following her recent legal troubles, Brandy has decided to step down, leaving Osbourne to replace her.

Brandy's spokeswoman Courtney Barnes says, "Brandy has enjoyed her association with the program. However, she felt she couldn't give the new season the attention and commitment it deserved."

Brandy faces a possible misdemeanor vehicular manslaughter charge and two wrongful death lawsuits following her involvement with a fatal car collision on Dec. 30 in Los Angeles.
