A blast from Britney's past auditioned for The X-Factor judges in San Francisco and presented an emotionally charged situation for Brit Brit that left her "visibly shaken," according to some in the audience. Details follow.
Don Philip recorded "I Will Still Love You" with Britney, a duet that appeared on her debut album Baby One More Time. Philip was in town to audition for The X-Factor, hoping his past relationship with the pop superstar would revive his music career.
PopCrush takes it from here:
The audition took an emotional turn when Philip started to cry and told the judges that he’s gay. ”At the time I didn’t think I was worthy,” he said to Spears. “I didn’t think you thought it was okay that I am gay.” But our girl showed nothing but support, explaining that she thought it was “fine” that he was gay.
We imagine Philip made Brit a little uncomfortable during this exchange, though, considering a source said she was visibly shaken during his audition.
“She handled it unbelievably well and really stepped up to the situation,” said the source. “It was probably the most personal and emotional situation for her that’s happened so far on ‘X Factor,’ and she took it totally in stride in front of a live audience of thousands.”
