Britney Spears denies storming off X Factor auditions

The X Factor

TMZ reports that on the first day of auditions, the singer allegedly stood up and walked off the set when a contestant delivered a poor performance of her hit song “Hold it Against Me,” according to several people.

The Sun posted a photo of the auditions and Britney’s seat appears empty, while a contestant is on stage.

Spears responded to the rumors on her Twitter page: “#Britneywalksoff??? LOL was just taking a little break people. I am having the BEST time!!!”

In addition, her rep told People magazine, “She was not upset. She just took a short break, which is not uncommon for judges to do in these taped shows.”

Britney Spears was confirmed as a judge on the X-Factor this month after signing a contract for $ 15 million per season.
