Britney Spears’ tenure as an “X Factor” judge is “off to a rocky start,” claims Us Weekly.

According to a so-called “source” for the tabloid, “Doing ‘X Factor’ may lead her back into meltdown territory,” because Spears “gets extremely nervous and anxious” during the show’s tapings.

And though Spears and her fellow judges just began filming the upcoming season last week, the “stress” is allegedly already taking its toll on the pop star.

“This is a lot of change at once for Britney,” alleges the supposed source. “She’s coming undone.”

So, what’s really going on here?

Ever since it was announced that Spears would be joining the music competition series, outlets have been desperate to to make it seem like she’s one wrong move away from a full-on mental breakdown.

A rep for Spears tells Gossip Cop that Us Weekly was told its allegations were completely false, but still decided to run with the inaccurate story anyway.

It’s “a pathetic attempt at creating a story,” says the rep.
