Britney Spears suffers from a variety of mental health disorders — bulimia, histrionic personality disorder, chronic halitosis, and spontaneous British accent-ism, just to name a few — but it’s her ADHD that’s causing her to up and walk off the X Factor set in the middle of shooting. The Daily Mail says:
A source [said]: ‘Britney was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder in her teens and used to take medication for it, but she can’t take it now because it interferes with the other medications she takes for her mental health issues.
Britney’s current team of doctors strictly prohibit her from taking Adderall or Ritalin, which are commonly given to people with ADHD.
Britney basically has the attention span of a 10-year-old at times. It’s not alarming to Simon at all and he is fully supportive of Britney doing whatever she needs to do during filming.’
They should just give her something to distract her, like a feather on a string or a ball of tin foil to bat around when she gets bored. It works great for my grandma’s cat. And my grandma.
