Simon Cowell - Britney Spears' Former Duet Partner's Gay Confession Cut From X Factor Debut

Producers of Simon Cowell's U.S. talent show The X Factor edited an emotional gay confession from a wannabe who once duetted with judge Britney Spears out of the second season premiere on Wednesday night (12Sep12) - because they didn't think it was relevant.
Much has been made of Don Philip's revelation, which was recorded during the San Francisco, California auditions in June (12), but executives chose not to feature it when the second season of the show debuted.
Instead, viewers saw Philip breaking down onstage in front of Spears, who recognised him immediately after he confessed the last 10 years - since he worked with the singer - had been difficult.
What fans of the show didn't see was Philip 'coming out' as a gay man to his former duet partner and her fellow judges.
A spokesperson for the show says, "The judges and producers felt it wasn't relevant to this audition that he was gay."
And in a statement issued to U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, the producers have revealed they were concerned about Philip's mental state after he displayed "deep psychotic feelings" after he was rejected from the show by Spears and the judges.
The wannabe, who told X Factor cameras he feared he had upset his former duet partner as he left the stage following his botched audition, has since attacked the pop star via Facebook.com and leaked a never-before-heard Britney song, titled Pleasure You, which features him on backing vocals.
