That's right, according to a source, Joan may be more on the mend than we might think:
Here's the skinny:
Girl has Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and can’t keep still!
According to an insider close to the sweet country chitlin, Brit was diagnosed with ADHD in her teens and used to take medication for it…
But since the docs created a pharmaceutical cocktail to deal with her other ‘mental issues’ BritBrit is strictly prohibited from munching on meds like Adderall and Ritalin, as they can negatively interfere with the concoction
"Simon was made fully aware of Britney's medical history before the contract was signed, so this certainly isn't a big surprise that she needs to take breaks during the audition process. Look, Britney basically has the attention span of a 10-year-old at times.
Her nutrition is closely monitored and so is her caffeine intake, because that can also enhance Britney's inability to focus. Simon knew what he was dealing with before he ever signed her to join the show and it's not shocking to him. Of course, it's rather disconcerting for people that see her do it for the first time but it's truly nothing to be alarmed at. 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."
Baby girl, YOU DO YOU!
While we were speculating up a storm over these recurring audition absences, it’s wonderful to know Brit's health is taking priority over her current job.
She's gotta take care of herself before you can take care of potential X-Factors!
