The sad, ongoing saga of Britney Spears



Tbdbritneyspears112107 As we near the end of the month, The Juice* is reminded that the mortgage is due, so that means we have to spill the beans about the latest drama in Britney Spears-land to stay employed.

So while the AP says Sony BMG and MTV Online were both fined $117,000 apiece by a Paris court for violating counterfeiting laws by showing a Louis Vuitton-upholstered Humvee dashboard in a video for Do Something, ol’ girl’s plan to hire a P.I. to spy on Kevin Federline was getting bashed by K-Fed’s lawyer, according to Us Weekly.

“I don’t think it will, in anyway, be a good expenditure of funds. But I can’t stop that from happening,” Mark Vincent Kaplan told the mag. Not when Brit-Brit is blowing coin on a driver, now that she’s been told she can’t cart Sean and Jayden around town since being declared about as fit to drive as Ray Charles (who’s dead, by the way).

Maybe she should be taking cues from K-Fed, who is “pretty good about keeping the kids at home with him unless there is really a compelling reason why they need to be going somewhere,” Kaplan said. They won’t be going anywhere for Thanksgiving: Federline plans to stuff their faces at home. That’s strikes us as sad, picturing poor Britney at home alone in her giant mansion, straddling a pile of money and eating a bucket of cold KFC ...

But Us throws in a parting shot, saying that Spears’ virginal image at the start of her career was all for show, and that she actually was deflowered at 14 by her then-boyfriend, Reg Jones, and had a very sexual relationship with Justin Timberlake, according to lawyer Eric Ervin. Then again, now that she’s a twice-divorced, twice-rehabbed mother of two, what difference does it make?
