Tapings for the next season of "X-Factor" started yesterday, and there's already been some drama. Well, sort of.

Reports from the set were that at one point, Britney Spears— who's being paid $15 million to be on the show— got up and left.

Initially it was thought that she'd "stormed" off after a contestant did a poor rendition of her song "Hold It Against Me." But Britney quickly shot that rumor down.

"#Britneywalksoff??? LOL was just taking a little break people. I am having the BEST time!!!' she tweeted.

Still, it would seem a tad unprofessional for her to be missing in action while contestants auditioned. Yet according to TMZ, she's been allowed that sort of freedom.

"Simon is a smart and shrewd businessman who knew Britney could make his show and he was willing to give her just about anything to come on board -- and he did," said a source.
