Britney Spears was being harassed before leaving a restaurant upset last weekend.

An employee at the restaurant confirms the pop star was upset because a fellow patron refused to stop recording her, squashing sensationalist reports that the singer had a “meltdown.”

Speaking to Page Six, a staff member at JOEY restaurant in the Woodland Hills area of Los Angeles confirmed Spears simply left because she was being harassed by other diners who wouldn’t stop recording and taking photos of her during her meal.

“The disruptor wasn’t Britney — it was the diner who taunted her by taking a video without consent,” explained the employee.
