“Janet had anti-bacterial spray, and was pulling one tissue out of a bag after another,” said the spy. Janet obsessively wiped down everything, including the phone, the TV monitor and her chair. Janet’s obsessive-compulsive behavior shocked onlookers, including Victoria Beckham, who was seated near her in the first class section of a British Airways flight from London to LA on Friday.
