Louis Walsh spills on Britney Spears being ❝pumped up on meds.❞

In a new interview with The Independent, Louis Walsh talked about Britney Spears and her time on X Factor USA. During filming in 2012, he says Britney was so heavily medicated that she was unable to sit upright and therefore had to be removed every few auditions. At the time, she was dating Jason Trawick. During negotiations, Simon Cowell reportedly suggested Trawick become a co-conservator so that he can be with her on set and avoid "insurance complications." If she was so heavily medicated, negotiations should never have occurred in the first place and just goes to show she was being exploited for a massive pay cheque.
