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.

It's time for this girl to grow up, she's being paid tons of money to sit there and take a little bad singing. Lord knows we had to do it from her all these years.

Who cares??? She's a hag anyway, she can't sing worth a damn herself without some kind of electronic help anyway so who is she to judge anyone else? Honestly Simon i love ya man but you're going down hill with these jokes of judges you keep getting!!!

Simon knew exactly what he was doing hiring these trainwrecks. Anything for ratings.

How many times have you people seen TMZ sensationalise something to get hits? They knew this story would get people hopping and it worked. They take breaks, this is what happened but everyone is so quick to jump on the hate train. You'll look like the fools when TMZ back tracks to tell you...ooops they took a break but people thought she just walked out. SMH

"Eye witness says Britney seemed visibly shaken and upset. She just got up and walked off. When she returned she seemed distant, and would not say anything."

oh boy

Britney probably shouldn't have signed on for the stupid Cowell show. Simon doesn't care what happens to her.

She is a sweet person with a fragile mental state who doesn't have a mean bone in her. You haters certainly don't help by bad mouthing her all the time - like any of you look half as good or have half the money she has.. NOT!

I liked her better when she was bald and strapped to an hospital gurney.
