X Factor to TMZ

'Play Nice'

5/26/2012 12:30 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


Simon Cowell and Britney Spears want TMZ to know ... despite our stories about Britney having a tough time judging "X Factor"  ... they couldn't be happier. Let's be real -- Britney says she's talking to Harvey in the video, but she's really talkin' to you.

As TMZ first reported, Britney walked off during shooting on Thursday ... leaving four contestants to sing to an empty chair. Yesterday Britney took one short break during taping, but was otherwise much more outgoing than on Day 1.

We starting poking around late yesterday because we heard rumblings that Britney might be having second thoughts, but she and Simon want to make it clear -- Britney is going nowhere.

We gotta ask ...

I think X Factor is going to be a flop no matter what happens! Simon should have stayed on Idol!

Seems strange for her to take a break for 4 auditions while nobody else did. Don't they have scheduled breaks for smokes or the bathroom?. Britney smokes. She probably has it in the contract that she can smoke whenever she wants. Probably another way for Simon to drum up publicity.

You guys have never been nice to her, It wouldn't kill you to let up on her. I won't lie, it's bordered on s***my sometimes and thats why alot of the time you can't be taken seriously.
