Britney Spears Facing Issues on X Factor?
Has Simon Cowell made a mistake in hiring Britney Spears as one of the X Factor judges? An insider says that Cowell is already anxious about Britney’s unpredictable behavior.
During an Austin audition on May 24, Brit abruptly got up and left the judging room. “When a contestant botched her hit ‘Hold It Against Me,’ she just left,” says a witness. “She missed the next four auditions. People weren’t sure if she was coming back.”
Britney later tweeted: “”LOL was just taking a little break people.” Apparently, this was not the only incident of the pop star getting up and leaving without any explanation.
However, another source claims that Simon Cowell is very understanding of Britney’s behavior. “Britney was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in her teens and used to take medication for it,” says a source.
“Simon was made fully aware of Britney’s medical history before the contract was signed,” added the source. “It’s not alarming to Simon at all and he is fully supportive of Britney doing whatever she needs to do during filming.”
The source also revealed that because of the medications that Britney is on for her mental health issues, she’s restricted from taking Adderall and Ritalin (which helped her cope with her ADHD). Her caffeine intake is also monitored, and she is required to have daily vigorous exercise activities in order to keep her focused. “Britney basically has the attention span of a 10-year-old at times,” explained the insider.
It seems that Simon is quite supportive of Britney: “In fact, Simon would have been surprised if she hadn’t taken breaks during judging last week, this means she is involved and engaged in the process,” the source concluded.
We wonder how she’ll do on the live tapings of X Factor. Will Britney be able to cut it?
