Brit Brit’s Team: No Alcohol Allowed On The Set of X-Factor

Reports reveal that the team of super dancer, singer, actress and all around entertainer, Britney Lynn Spears has banned alcohol from the set of the hit show, the X-Factor.

With the entertainment power of Britney Spears she can do whatever she wants. Besides, no alcohol is a good thing!

Clearly her team cares about her welfare enough to restrict her proximity to alcohol.

As we all know, Brit Brit is the newest celebrity judge to join X-Factor, where she is allegedly raking in 15 million dollars to sit in a chair and dish out commentary on the performances of contestants, for just one season of X-Factor.

Brit Brit is being paid six times that of former X-Factor judge and alum, Paula Abdul, who was being paid a mere 2.5 million dollars.

However, in comparison to the 75 million that X-Factor creator Simon Cowell is being paid, it “ain’t” pocket change, but it certainly is not three quarters of 100 million dollars.

For your information, Christina Auguilera, of The Voice, is being paid 10 million dollars. Meanwhile, Mariah Carey, the newest edition to American Idol, is being paid 20 million dollars.

Perhaps it is random, but it boggles the mind to learn that Mimi is being paid more than Brit Brit.

Back to Brit Brit, who notoriously struggled with alleged mental health troubles years ago, but not alcoholism! Remember when she shaved her head [ghastly]!

Allegedly, Brit Brit’s rider [a set of demands and requests that must be fulfilled before a celebrity performs] bans all alcohol, whether in her dressing room, hotel, or on a set she is performing on.

In fact, her team is said to be so protective of Brit that they arrive in advance to insure that not one drop of alcohol is in sight. Good for her, as it is not always easy to find good help!

If you or someone that you know or love is struggling with alcoholism or drug addiction, please call or text us now. We can help you.
