Britney's Rep Denies Vegas Liposuction Rumours

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Now that her divorce is finally official, Britney Spears, 25, has hit a rough patch with another man in her life: manager Larry Rudolph.

“There is tension. He’s been trying to get her help, and she doesn’t feel she needs it,” a source tells Us Weekly of the star, who is said to be miffed at him for pushing her into rehab.

In fact, Rudolph ordered a pal not to take her calls the night she shaved her head. Says a source, “It was tough love.”

Another source says Spears is conflicted because “she only wants people around her whom she trusts as she works toward her comeback.”

That’s an all-natural comeback, by the way: A Spears rep denies rumors she had liposuction during a trip to Las Vegas on April 9.

That’s right, just one day after Kevin Federline, 29, left Las Vegas, Spears popped up in Sin City for her own desert retreat.

Brit, who stayed at the Wynn with a girlfriend and several bodyguards, hit the resort pool on Monday where, for the most part, she stayed out of sight in a cabana.

But the pop princess can’t stay undercover for long. Craving sushi, Britney dined at Nobu, inside the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino, wearing an auburn bob wig, a straw cowboy hat and large sunglasses – because that won’t draw attention.

Nobu is apparently a hot-spot for divorcing celebs: K-Fed ate there three nights earlier and hit the Hard Rock pool on Saturday where onlookers say he hung out with friends and his attorney. Federline was spotted reading and signing documents poolside, according to a source. Perhaps it was Britney’s turn with the paperwork.

Justin Timberlake: "I Called Britney"

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Justin Timberlake was so concerned about Britney Spears, who entered rehab in February, that he reached out to her, he has revealed.

“I called her because I worried about her,” Timberlake, 26, said recently at a press day for his new movie Shrek The Third.

But Spears, who checked out of Malibu’s Promises treatment center in March after nearly a month, is on the right track, Timberlake said.

“She’s a great woman. I’m rooting for her,” he said. “[It] seems like she’s getting everything under control now.”

Timberlake, who in January split with Cameron Diaz (his costar in Shrek, who also attended the press day), said being single has its ups and downs.

“The advantages are that you don’t get in as many arguments, and the disadvantage is that you’re talking to yourself,” he said.

But he isn’t exactly lonely. Timberlake spent time with Jessica Biel, 25, at a barbecue party at his L.A. house last week, PEOPLE reports in its new issue.

Things between the pair got “hot and heavy,” says a source in the singer’s circle.

This isn’t the first time Timberlake and Biel have been spotted together: In January they went snowboarding with a group of friends in Park City, Utah, and hung out backstage at one of Timberlake’s concerts in San Diego.

And at Prince’s Golden Globes party that month, Timberlake and Diaz had a spat after Diaz saw Timberlake chatting with Biel.

As for Biel, when it comes to Timberlake, a source tells PEOPLE the actress is “crazy about him.”

Rumour: Britney Says She Hates Her Manager

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Does Britney Spears “hate” her manager, Larry Rudolph? And is Rudolph even her manager?

Here’s a better question: Who is in charge of Britney Spears, anyway?

A day of frustrating phone calls yesterday leads me to believe that actually no one is calling the shots for the beleaguered pop tart.

Spears, for example, has been telling friends that she “hates” Rudolph and never intended to sign with him again after leaving his orbit in October 2004. That’s when Spears severed her relations with Rudolph after nearly a decade.

But then, when Spears went off the deep end last year following her separation from the infamously impaired Kevin Federline, Rudolph stepped in and got Spears’ name back on the dotted line.

“She signed a five year contract with him,” says a source. “She says she didn’t know what she was doing at the time, and can’t stand him. But what can she do? Bring in a lawyer and say she signed under duress? That she was drunk or stoned?”

If Spears did want to call a lawyer then the next question is, who would that be? Her music business legal rep, Gary Stiffelman, didn’t return calls yesterday. I speak for a moment to her high-powered Hollywood divorce attorney Laura Wasser, wife of Dennis Wasser, who only said, “I can’t discuss anything.”

Rudolph also didn’t return calls yesterday. His ReignDeer Management company has a telephone voice answering system that doesn’t work. More curious: His page features another artist, not Britney, whom I guess he’s representing now.

Spears also has no proper publicist in place. Leslie Sloane-Zelnick, who got her through years of scandals, is off the case. Spears’ record company publicist, Gina Orr, doesn’t respond to emails or calls.

If Britney is unhappy with Rudolph, it’s likely that she can’t do much about it, especially with that contract. But after her divorce, all her rehab expenses and her constant nights on the town at pricey L.A. restaurants like Koi or The Bridge — she’s been spotted picking up the bill at both places recently — Spears had better get back to work. And just an album won’t cut it. She’s got to figure out a way to tour. It’s the only way left to make money in what was once known as the music business.

Britney Slashes Asking Price Of Her Malibu Mansion

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

Pop beauty, Britney Spears is having trouble selling her Malibu mansion reports PEOPLE

Spears, 25, put the seven-bedroom, 1.53-acre estate on the market on Jan. 18 for $13.5 million. On March 28, the price dropped to $11.9 million, and it is still available at that price.

Spears bought the 9,000-sq.-ft home in October 2004, shortly after marrying Kevin Federline for $6.9 million.

According to gossips, Kevin Federline will receive half of the house cost in his divorce settlement.

Over the weekend, Britney Spears reportedly told estranged husband Kevin Federline he was the “biggest mistake she ever made”.

Despite her cruel comment, Britney also allegedly gave Kevin one last chance to save their marriage, as they finalized their divorce settlement last month.

A source told Star magazine: “Britney said, ‘Do you really want to do this?’ and Kevin said yes. Britney replied, ‘You’re the biggest mistake I’ve ever made, but thank you for my babies.’ “

It is also claimed Kevin, 29, led Britney, 25, to believe they would get back together after she left rehab to ensure she finished her treatment at Malibu’s Promises center.

Meanwhile, Britney is said to have found love with musician Howie Day, who she met at Promises.

A source told Life and Style Weekly magazine: “Britney has fallen hard for him.

“Britney just lights up and seems back to her old self when she talks to Howie or tells people about him. She thinks he’s very talented – and says he’s the best kisser ever!”

The Toxic singer is so smitten she is planning to take Howie to her cousin Erin’s wedding in June.

However, Britney’s mother Lynne is less than pleased with her daughter’s new love and thinks he will be a bad influence.

The source added: “Lynne wants Britney to be with someone outside the music industry. Howie is always on the road and exposed to influences that are discouraged in rehab.”

Sean Garrett Says His Tracks With Britney Will Be "Instant Party Classics"

Written by admin. Posted in Uncategorized

With all the hubbub over her public divorce, revolving door rehab stints, and head-shaving wackiness, it seems like forever since anyone talked about Britney Spears as a pop singer. But producer Sean Garrett, who’s helping Le Brit put together her new album, thinks her upcoming new record will help her change all that.

”She will be coming back really strong, I promise,” Garrett told EW at the Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards. ”It is possible for her to be big again and popular again. Hits always solve everything. A hit makes people forget just about anything.”

If there’s one thing the Grammy Award-nominated songwriter/producer knows, it’s how to make a 21st-century hit record. Garrett’s résumé includes writing chart toppers for Chris Brown, Beyoncé, Destiny’s Child, and Ciara, and Jay-Z has dubbed him ”the pen” for his master songwriting prowess. He was a natural choice for Spears, whose last album of all-original material, 2003’s In the Zone, sold a disappointing (in Britney terms) 3 million copies.

The two began work on the new record before the meltdown, and Garrett promises that her brief hiatus won’t get in the way of their finishing what they started.

”We had a couple of bombs, instant party classics that we worked up then, and we are still feeling strong about them,” Garrett said. ”I was already involved with her when things started spinning out of control. I think that pumps you up more than brings you down. It is more of a challenge for me as a producer. We’re in the business, too. I know how difficult [it] can get, and sometimes things aren’t really how they look. There is a lot going on in her life and she is real people. Real people got problems and real people have meltdowns and cry. She has a heart and she is a passionate and emotional girl and sometimes s— gets too tough.”

As if resurrecting Spears’ career weren’t enough, Garrett is also currrently helping with Usher’s new record, as well as the solo album for Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, and the new record from R&B sensation Chris Brown. ”The topics he sings about are a little more mature and his voice is getting a little deeper,” he reveals about Brown. ”He is catering a little more to the ladies this time, but there are also still some high-energy songs and club records. It will show a little maturity. We got this record, which I’m thinking will be the first single, called ‘Wall to Wall.’ That’s hot.”

You might think that Garrett would be too preoccupied with keeping Spears on track to take on so many high-profile projects, but the producer seems confident she has her demons under control.

”She is making the efforts to handle her business and I don’t worry about her,” he said. ”I will always love and support Britney. She is a great woman, and she has always done good with her kids when I was around. I’d trust her with mine. She is a good mom and she is a great performer. It would be a bummer if that was silenced. It’s game time and she will be back. Just wait.”
