Cry Me a River, Paula!

Paula Abdul had a weepy breakdown yesterday -- and it was caught on tape!

Cameras spotted the nose-outta-joint "American Idol" judge, bawling her eyes out as she left her Hollywood Hills home! Her driver handed the sobbing mess a tissue before Miss A got into the limo.

We're not sure why Paula was crying ... perhaps she got a look at her outfit.
