Apparently Britney Spears has been walking off the stage at random times during X Factor filming for no apparent reason.
Press releases tell us that she has ADHD which was diagnosed in her teens. Various reports say she still takes medication for it.
Simon Cowell, the show’s creator and producer, is fully aware of Britney’s medical history, so he’s neither shocked or surprised. Insiders say Britney basically has the attention span of a 10-year-old at times.
While this is a celebrity case, it nonetheless depicts adult life with ADHD. The severity can cause problems. Most employers are not as forgiving as Mr. Cowell, and it’s likely Britney would not be treated as well if she were not a pop diva.
