Britney Spears and Jason Trawick have broken up. Jason was Britney’s agent first, but eventually they dated and he became her co-conservator along with her Daddy Spears. They waited until Jason was taken off the conservatorship to announce the split, which is supposedly friendly. Sources told TMZ they “grew apart.”
Here’s another case of one gossip site spinning one side of the story and Blind Gossip telling it how it really is! TMZ just posted this little item about Britney Spears quitting X Factor:
Britney Spears just released a statement confirming the story TMZ first reported … that she’s leaving “X Factor” and will go back to making music … but Spears notes it was a “very difficult decision.”
“I had an incredible time doing the show and I love the other judges and I am so proud of my teens but it’s time for me to get back in the studio,” Spears said.
She continues, “Watching them all do their thing up on that stage every week made me miss performing so much! I can’t wait to get back out there and do what I love most.”
Spears would’ve made $15 million to return to the show next season … but it’s not like she’ll be hurting for cash. She’s currently working on her 8th album and is in serious talks to headline a show in Vegas.
But Blind Gossip has this blind item out there from yesterday (it’s not solved yet, but it’s pretty obviously Britney Spears).
(This is a cray video the guy made trying to go the Lanza house in Sandy Hook.)
Remember the story from yesterday from Radar Online about how Britney supposedly stole Kevin Federline’s brother’s credit card and how the brother might be the real dad of Britney’s son, Sean? FAKE! A dude known for filing fake lawsuits against celebrities is responsible and that’s not even the worst thing he’s done!
Jonathan Lee Riches, who was has been on federal probation since April for conspiracy and wire fraud, filed the fake complaint against Britney. He’s also responsible for the “Justin Beiberstole my credit card to get a penis” lawsuit and various other phony lawsuits against celebrities. Riches has been arrested on a federal probation violation charge for leaving the area when he traveled to Connecticut where he posed as the uncle of Sandy Hook Elementary School gunman Adam Lanza. From the Smoking Gun:
While incarcerated, he filed hundreds of fatuous lawsuits that named a cavalcade of athletes, politicians, musicians, Hollywood stars, and other public figures as defendants.
Since his release from prison in late-April, Riches has continued filing lawsuits, though he has used names other than his own, like “Gino Romano.” For example, posing as the father of actress Selena Gomez, Riches filed an October 2012 federal complaint accusing Justin Bieber of stealing his credit card and using it to pay for a “penis enlargement.”
This is from the National Enquirer so, you know, take with a million grains of salt. The best part is that Christopher Federline says Britney made fun of his penis size (X):
Kevin Federline‘s brother Christopher says in bombshell court papers that he slept with Britney Spears during her marriage to his brother — and fathered her now-7-year-old son Sean Preston – and we’ve got all the news right here for you on RadarOnline.com.
Christopher Federline, as first reported by the National Enquirer, filed for a temporary restraining order against Britney December 18 in U.S. District Court in Tampa, Florida, claiming The X Factor judge has stolen from, blackmailed and harassed him.
“She is out-of-control and a maniac,” he said in the court docs.
In the papers, Christopher says Britneyrecently “went to Kevin’s house to pick upSean Preston and Jayden James, and [his] wallet was on Kevin’s coffee table when Britney opened it up and stole [his] Capital One credit card.”
Brit’s on an allowance so maybe she was desperate for some cash.
Christopher claimed in court docs that when he followed up on the alleged theft — which accounted to more than $4,500 in charges — “Britney … laughed at me [and] told me my brother Kevin ruined her life. Britney made fun of me and told me I have a small penis.
This is the part of the story that makes it seem sort of real. Like why else would you say this, especially in court docs, making it all official and shit.
“She also blackmailed me and told me if I tell the police that she stole my credit card, that she will tell the world I’m the true father of Sean Preston, not Kevin.
“I do confess I slept with Britney, and I am the true father, but the public does not need to know,” he admitted.
Umm, dude, you’re filing court docs. The public is gonna know.
A source told the Enquirer that when Christopher contacted Britney about the credit card, she “just laughed at him,” and “threatened to tell Kevin she and Chris had sex while she was married to Kevin … and tell everyone that.”
The Federline years are an even lower point in Britney’s life if this is true.
An insider says that “Chris says the fling was a mistake. He says he always felt bad about it and kept it to himself because he didn’t want Alisha, his wife at the time, to find out.”
I really feel like Britney Spear has pulled it together lately. She looks good, she’s acting normal. I hope this isn’t true because I don’t want her to go off the rails again (not that she would, but you never know with Brit Brit). From EvilBeetGossip:
Ugh, poor Britney. It’s always something, isn’t it? Last month the story was that she and Jason had planned to get married before the end of the year, but they couldn’t stop fighting long enough to plan everything out. And now it looks like Jason is definitely leaving Britney, and all that’s left to do is tell her.
At first, I was like doh! She’s going to know if it’s all over the gossip mags. But then I remembered the article I did where it said Britney’s computer usage is controlled and they hide stuff from her. Sad.
He’s apparently already told Britney’s family so that she’ll “have a support system when he breaks the bad news.” He’s also being enough of a sweetheart to wait until this season of X-Factor is over so that she doesn’t have to do live television while brokenhearted. Isn’t that thoughtful?
Up until this point, I’m feeling like aww, he cares about her and wants the best for her.
Another thing: he still wants to be her manager.And he’s already one of her conservators, remember, so this plan may not be good for Britney’s heart, but it makes perfect sense for Britney’s bank account. Which is, obviously, the most important thing.
Insert screeching brake noise. I don’t think this is a good idea. If you’re going to break it off, then just break it off. Don’t be her manager just because you can and you’ll make a ton of dough for doing nothing…although, Britney has seemed better lately so maybe he’s on to something…but then I say, no. That’s just not healthy for Britney.
I’m not so sure I believe this, but that’s basically just because I want nothing but good things for Britney. This dude breaking up with her while he still keeps a firm grasp on her money? Not so good for her.
I went in fully expecting to make fun of this (I mean, it starts with BritBrit talking like a Brit), but damn it, it’s too damn catchy. I usually love will.i.am songs and Britney songs, too, so I can’t help it – i love this damn song! Britney Bitch! How very dare you! will.i.am’s wearing a cod piece at 4:15. And I think I need that hat for the 1D concert!
I’m probably not going to be on much this morning – I’ve got a meeting and some other stuff to do and then I have to pack tonight and omg, I leave for NYC tomorrow. *ded*
No sure which dog Sam hid, but this one is the cutest!
If what Britney Spears lawyers are saying is true, no wonder Britney Spears’ family are doing everything they can to keep Sam Lufti away from her. The lawyers are claiming Sam would hide Britney’s dog, watch her cry, and then magically find it so he could be the hero. TMZ says:
Sam Lutfi was so heartless … he would hide Britney Spears‘ precious pooch from her and watch her cry and then save the day by “finding it” … so claims lawyers for Britney’s family.
In their opening statements, lawyers for Lynne Spears and the conservatorship told the jury … Sam tried to look like a savior to Britney and would stoop so low as to emotionally torture her.
Now that Sam Lufti’s case against Britney Spears is in full swing, all the dirt is coming out. Sam Lufti’s lawyer has made a bunch of statements in his opening arguments about how Britney was on amphetamines. Some of the highlights and more highlights:
Britney Spears was super-paranoid that her hair contained traces of the hardcore drugs she was using — and that’s why she SHAVED IT ALL OFF during her infamous 2007 meltdown … at least according to Sam Lutfi.
Sam’s lawyer, Joseph Schleimer, has been telling the court … Britney was a serious drug-abuser … who had a penchant for crystal meth.
Schleimer suggested Britney was concerned that a judge would test her hair for drugs — and when it turned up positive, she would lose custody of her kids.
So, Britney … being Britney … believed that if she chopped off her hair, she could beat the drug test … at least that’s what Lutfi’s lawyer is implying.
This tells me Britney watched Judge Judy. Judge Judy is always threatening to test people’s hair for drugs. I thought this was sort of obvious why she shaved her head so this isn’t exactly a bombshell to me at least.
Britney Spears took a huge amount of amphetamines the night she was strapped to a stretcher and placed on a 5150 hold — so claims Sam Lutfi‘s lawyer in the opening statements of his defamation case.
Lutfi’s lawyer, Joseph Schleimer, told the jury, on January 28, 2008, Britney had an amphetamine script filled. Schleimer says she took 6 to 8 pills early in the day, and several more later and went off the rails.
And there’s this … during Britney’s disastrous appearance on the MTV Awards in 2007, Lutfi felt she was such a mess she shouldn’t do it, because she was overweight and didn’t rehearse, but Britney wouldn’t hear it.
I had forgotten about this performance, but I remember thinking Britney had to be on something during this because she just looked super out of it and unstable on her feet. Britney seems way better now, but it’s sad all this is coming out now and rehashing that sucky time. I just want to remember Oops I Did It Again Britney before she got all nutty.
Britney Spears has been ruled not mentally competent to testify in a suit against her yet she’s competent to judge X-Factor each week. I can’t decide if she’s crazy because they are babying her or if they baby her because she’s crazy. Source:
Skeletons are poised to come out of the closet this week as Britney Spears’ former manager Sam Lutfi’s 2009 defamation suit against the singer and her family goes to trial this week.
Now the case is set to go to trial and Lourdes Torres, a former nanny for Britney’s children, is going to testify that the singer has been emotionally manipulated throughout her court-mandated conservatorship, reports RadarOnline.
Torres was a nanny for Britney’s two sons in the months after the conservatorship was instated in 2008, and will testify to witnessing emotional manipulation, and will claim that she quit her job because she was “so disturbed” by what she saw happening to the singer, a source explained to the website, adding:
“[Torres] isn’t after money, she just wants the truth to come out and it will be shocking.”
The trial is expected to last close to three weeks, with Lutfi, Britney’s fiance, Jason Trawick and both her parents scheduled to testify. Britney isn’t scheduled to testify,and according to Fox News , the judge handling her conservatorship has ruled she can’t be forced to do so, as it could potentially cause her “irreparable harm and immediate danger.”
Spears and her handlers have no intention of having her testify and have done everything they could for the past three years to prevent the singer from having any contact with Lutfi. The singer’s team was granted a restraining order against Lutfi in January 2009, alleging that he drugged Britney in an attempt to control her. Spears’ father wrote in the complaint that “Mr. Lutfi has drugged Britney. … He has cut Britney’s home phone line and removed her cell phone chargers. He yells at her. He claims to control everything — Britney’s business manager, her attorneys and the security guards at the gate.”
Despite the fact that a judge has ruled that Britney isn’t mentally competent enough to testify, a source told RadarOnline that Lutfi’s lawyers are still pushing the issue. Though it’s unlikely, if the singer were to testify, it would be “explosive for so many reasons,” California-based civil litigation attorney Anahita Sedaghatfar told Fox News. “Britney’s epic meltdown, in which the world witnessed her shaving her head and attacking the paparazzi with an umbrella, is once again going to be revisited. If Britney is indeed called, things could get very ugly fast.”
