Britney Spears

Walks Off '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 "needed a break." Yes, because sitting in a chair and listening to people sing is EXCRUCIATING work. Oh, the humanity!

This is exactly why they got Britney. They got rid of Paula and needed an unstable train wreck to replace her. Britney was right there to take up the kooky mantle.

LOL.
They need to handcuff her to the desk. She's going to be a disaster on this show. She couldn't even last an hour before she walks off set? Really? For 15 million dollars to sit there and judge a goofy karaoke show I'd be stilling there at that judging table eating my meals, crapping myself.. I wouldn't move for that kind of money. What a dumb skank.
At least she doesn't have HIV and try to hide it like Lindsay Lohan. She's just insane.

Britney's just now realizing that it's more difficult than she anticipated to go without shoving a spoon up her nose at 15-minute intervals.

Grow up Britney. She is such an embarrassment to her Son's. Maybe she could think of them for once. Are they in school yet? Yikes.

Britney Spears is mentally ill she is going to need alot of breaks. I personally am just waiting for Demi to punch someone out for forgetting to put the lemon slice in her water.
