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.

Oh she wasn't mad. It was the perfect opportunity for her to use that dumb as* as an excuse to go backstage and have some pepto bismol or smoke a cigarette.

You don't expect her to snort lines right on camera do you?

It's obvious she still has mental issues, I never thought she would do well with the stress of a job again

There's a difference between taking a break and leaving contestants to perform to an empty chair. Very rude on her part.

Pahlease. Paula Abdul had contestants constantly butcher her songs and she kept her as* in the seat. Britney can pretend she's just taking a break but wouldn't they all be getting up and leaving if it was?
