Is “X Factor” 2012 Having Second Thoughts About Britney?

Whether it is cover up or truth, their might be a reason why Britney Spears reportedly walked off the stage of her first showing on the X Factor last week. Sources close to her say that Britney has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and that she is not able to take the meds for the disorder since it interferes with the meds she takes for her mental health.

The source also revealed that Britney was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder when she was in her teens and used to take medication that was prescribed to her to control it. Going on to say that since the meds helped her keep the condition under control, it just could be what happened on the stage since she isn’t getting the needed med now that interferes with her mental health problems medication. Her current physician team strictly prohibits the use of Ritalin or Adderall for the pop star, the two drugs of preference to treat ADHD.Britney-xfactor

The sources close to the situation say that Simon was fully informed of Britney’s medical history before her contract was signed to appear as a seasonal judge on the show, so the fact that she has to take breaks during the audition process does not come as a surprise, citing that Britney has the attention span of a ten year old at times. Britney’s condition and behavior are not concerning Simon as says he is fully supportive of her doing whatever she needs to during the filming segments of the program.

If all this information is on the up and up, the 2012 season on the X Factor could be the best show on television this summer when the live shows begin since it isn’t even September yet.  When TMZ reported that Britney walked off the set on the first day of filming of the audition, reactions were running high about the star as thoughts were zooming threw people’s minds like “here we go again.”

Speculations were that Britney was upset over a contestant who auditioned to her song, Hold it Against Me, and did not do a very good job with it. People who were in the audience when it happened told that Britney was upset and walked off the stage with her keepers running after her. They went on to tell that the remaining four contestants auditioned in front of only three judges while Britney’s seat remained empty. Better get used to it, it’s going to be a long season.

Who knows, maybe Simon thought that her crazy behavior would get him some ratings.  Maybe watching Britney’s irrational behavior will get more viewers than the show itself.


Of course Britney denies that she was upset about the song and simply took a needed break as she tweeted, “LOL was just taking a little break people. I am having the BEST time.”  She even added a photo to her tweet of the first view of the X Factor judges table along with L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato, and Simon Cowell. No doubt the public will all get to see the drama as the cable tv show is bound to air it on one of their episodes in the fall just to drum up viewers and ratings.
