Rhu Rho. According to TMZ and other eye witnesses, Britney Spears walked off the set of the XFactor. It was her first day on the job. The auditions are being held today in Austin TX
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 needed a break.”
The show is currently on a break — so we don’t know if or when she will return to her seat.
Honestly, It’s well known that Britney has mental health issues. If she has a meltdown, Simon Cowell and his need for spectacle are to blame.
UPDATE: Mark Malkin tweets that Britney is back: “second taping has begin. britney spears is back. and she just got booed for gushing over someone who didn’t sing very well.”
@la_reid just playfully told the crowd they can’t boo
