With the X Factor’s premiere less than a week away, it seems like Simon Cowell’s star studded panel almost fell through early on!
Remember back in May when Britney Spears walked off the XF set on the first day of auditions?!
While at the time, it was claimed that Brit Brit was just “taking a break,” we are now finding out what REALLY went down that day!
In a recent interview, Simon confessed:
"No one is going to admit that on the first day your highest paid star after 20 minutes has walked off set. [Britney] had a moment on the first day where she said to me 'I'm not sure I can do this.'"
Supposedly, our Southern blossom wasn’t in the bathroom like everyone was told — she legit LEFT!
Hm… we knew something was up!
Good thing Simon eventually persuaded Mz. Spears to stay, because she ended up LOVING the judging gig!
We can’t wait to tune in on Wednesday for the show’s premiere and to see Brit come into her own!
