It doesn’t matter what he said or she said, the truth always lies in the middle. Louis Walsh claims that Britney Spears was on so much medication while they were filming The X Factor in 2012 that the chart topper surely didn’t seem like herself. In fact, Louis claims that Britney could barely sit up straight in her chairs. Here’s what you need to know.
As many fans can recall, Louis briefly worked with Britney on the US edition of the singing competition show. She was even a full-time judge during Season 2.
Britney Spears Was On A Lot Of Medication During The ‘X Factor’ So Says Louis Walsh
Imitating the way that Britney Spears was supposedly slumping in her chair, Louis told the Irish Independent in a new interview, “I was sitting with Britney for two days, and after every few auditions, she would go…”
“They would literally have to stop the show and take her out because she was on so much medication and other stuff,” he claimed. “I felt sorry for her.”
Louis also went on to say that Britney certainly didn’t look like she was “all there.”
“Here she was, the biggest pop star on the planet, and she was just sitting there physically, but she wasn’t there mentally,” Walsh recalled on Sunday. “She had a lot of problems.”
When asked whether Britney Spears should have been getting mental help rather than be on the show, Louis said, “She was getting millions of dollars to do it, so why the f–k wouldn’t she sit there?”
Back in 2012, Britney admitted that she did not have the best experience on The X Factor.
She said, “I was having panic attack after panic attack. I got over that quickly, though, and realized that I was helping them by being honest. … Personally, I think that’s the toughest part about being a judge on ‘The X Factor.’ Most of them are still developing, and it’s hard to tell such young kids whether they have what it takes or not, so I try to be as protective as I can with their hopes and dreams.”
