‘X Factor’ judge Britney Spears has been through her ups and downs over the years and it turns out that she has also been battling with Psoriasis.
“Britney has had the skin condition for a long time, but it only flares up when she’s under extreme pressure,” a source revealed. “Now she can’t seem to stop scratching and picking at the sores. She has a psoriasis skin cream, but she says it burns, so she stopped using it.”
“Britney had a chance to watch herself judging ‘The X Factor’ and she’s really self conscious about it all,” another source said. “She’s terribly nervous and thinks people are laughing at her and making fun of the way she talks. She’s trying her best not to be so nervous, but she can’t help it.”
Despite her struggles, she has her fiancé Jason Trawick and fellow judge Simon Cowell at her side. “Simon’s a big help and has bent over backwards for Britney and made every single accommodation Britney has requested,” the source added. “He knows she’s the show and a bigger draw them himself so whatever she wants, she gets. She has even asked that the cameras don’t show closeups of her hands anymore because she bites her nails constantly.”
