Britney Spears

Walks Off 'X Factor'

0524-britney-spears-x-factor
Britney Spears walked off the set of "X Factor" moments ago ... and according to several people in the audience, she was upset after a contestant butchered her song, "Hold It Against Me."

Britney did not come back immediately ... and four contestants auditioned in front of the remaining judges ... and an empty seat.

Someone connected with the show tells us Britney was not upset over the song -- and that she "Just took a short break."

The show is currently on a break -- so we don't know if or when she will return to her seat.

She was just taking a break, there was no drama. I was at the show; the judges take breaks every few auditions (makeup, cleaning stage, checking sound, etc.) and towards the end during one of the last breaks Britney didn't come back. She was probably just not feeling well; she was awfully quiet.

Maybe she forgot that she left her kids in the hot car? Or maybe she went out to shave her head again? Or maybe she went and attacked an SUV with an umbrella again. I remember when Brittany was hot. Now she is just another pass their prime star trying desperately to hold on to their fleeting fame. She was back then what Justin Bieber is now. Someone who really had no talent but was hyped immensely by the music industry.

Britney will succeed... though she's only on the show because Cowell wants a piece !

It is the medication that she took for her mental issues. The antipsychotic drugs make you very restless and unable to concentrate and cause emotional instability. They permanantly damage your brain that way. She is maybe just overwhelmed by memories at this point and maybe can't process them as they come into her head.

Maybe she would rather be singing but she can't without a backup tape any more because her mind got fried by the drugs. She looks like she may still be on them also.
