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.

"her" song? As in the song her management paid someone to write and then trained her to lip synch it?

Wow aren't people allowed to have a few minutes break after 8 hours? She tweeted she was taking a break and of course everyone jumps to conclusions. TMZ you are a piece of sh*t. Always trash talking Britney anyway. Stop making up bullsh*t.

I consider these TV competitions to be low-grade karaoke, but even then, I'm sure the singer's version was probably better than Britney's. If not, the singing on the shows is even worse than I thought.

A contestant butchered 'Hold it Against Me' and then gave her advice... she came back to the table. I'm not even a fan, but this is stupid.

Kinda sad how everyone is talking trash about britney, saying shes a "trainwreck" and **** like that when shes more than stable and all that she wanted is to take a break. She didnt insult anyone, she didnt shave her head again, she didnt do anything BAD. You're all just doing what X Factor wants you to do, to talk about Britney and the show. Besides, she left for a few minutes. TMZ spreading lies, as usual.

Well she's so emotionally and psychologically messed up that she's on pills all the time that keep her sedated right? Maybe she went off to get herself sedated again?

Britney was upset for the individual and went backstage to give her advice. She didn't just leave and that was it. Anything to make up a rumor.
