Simon Cowell insists that there haven’t been any problems on the set of the X-Factor. Britney Spears has now taken off twice in the middle of judging but Simon is still taking up for her.

Britney took off on her first day on the job after a contestant butchered one of her songs. And on the next day of auditions, she took off again. Nothing really triggered her to get up and leave; she just stood up at the end of the performance and walked out.

But this could be Simon’s fault. He was so desperate to get her on the show that he agreed to all of her demands, including taking a break whenever she wanted. He said that they are all allowed to take a break every 5 songs or so but Britney’s timing has just been a little bizarre.
