Britney Annoyed At Derogatory Kevin AMA Skit

She played it cool on stage, but Britney Spears was “pissed” at ABC over a derogatory sketch aimed at her estranged husband, Kevin Federline, during last night’s “American Music Awards,” a Britney rep tells TMZ.

E!’s Marc Malkin first reported Brit was upset, and now a rep for Brit tells TMZ, “She had no idea” that the skit would immediately precede her appearance. We’re told Britney was “incredibly upset” and “inconsolable.”

The sketch featured AMA host Jimmy Kimmel sealing a Federline look-a-like in a wooden crate and shipping him out to sea. Kimmel called K-Fed,”the world’s first ever no-hit wonder.” Less than five minutes later, Kimmel introduced Spears as a surprise presenter.

When contacted, a rep confirms to TMZ the idea for the skit was Kimmel’s and he went forward with it because, “I knew they wouldn’t mind because I know they both have great senses of humor.”

Official: There Is No Sex Tape

TMZ has learned that Britney Spears and Kevin Federline will come together one more time to tell the public that they never made a sex tape.

Reps from the divorcing couple tell us that both Britney and Kevin want to put an end to rumors that K-Fed is out peddling a sex tape for some quick cash. They have agreed to jointly issue a statement, hoping to put an end to the flurry of stories that such a tape exists.

[UPDATE 1:30PM ET] — Attorney Mark Vincent Kaplan later released a statement that said in part, “There is not a sex video of Kevin and Britney in existence. It goes without saying that the stories of Kevin attempting to sell such a video are patently false and anyone who reports that they have information of such attempts is either lying or reporting the lie of someone else.”

Rumour: Britney Working With Xenomania

The marriage she claimed was “made in heaven” is now heading for the divorce court, but Britney Spears is not letting this problem affect her comeback.

She has called on the best UK pop writers and producers to ensure she is back on top form as soon as possible.

Remember Toxic written by Cathy Dennis? Well, three tracks have already been submitted by her pen and the team behind Girls Aloud are also writing tracks for Ms Spears, but with a difference… Britney herself will be co-writing all of the tracks on her comeback album.

She reveals: “I’m a mother now and I want to take control over all aspects of my life and my career. This is the start of a new me.”

1,611 New Britneys In Britain

Britney, Tiger, Gandalf and Madonna will soon join the more usual Peters and Janes in Britain’s playgrounds, while Harry Potter may also drop in, according to a new survey of babies’ names.

“It seems that many of us are happy to take hero worship to a whole new level, naming our children after the stars we admire,” said Sarah Malone of www.findmypast.com, the website that compiled the survey. “However, it would appear that the famous British sense of humor is alive and well, with six parents naming their son Gandalf, along with one Harry Potter and two Supermans,” she added.

From the world of music, Australian star Kylie Minogue has inspired the biggest gaggle of little girls, with 7,261. In contrast, Madonna only manages 288 namesakes, easily beaten by 1,611 Britneys.

Britney Working With Dr Luke

Britney Spears’s post-breakup tour has taken her to Las Vegas – and she finally hit the town this weekend, winning big at the blackjack table and partying with Dancing with the Stars’ Mario Lopez, sources tell PEOPLE.

After stops in New York and her Louisiana hometown of Kentwood, Spears, accompanied by her former manager Larry Rudolph, arrived in Nevada this week and kept a low profile before finally hitting the town on Friday.

Donning a disguise of a pink wig and big, dark sunglasses, Britney was spotted in the Palms Casino Resort Friday night chatting it up with owner George Maloof – this, after she and George went on a shopping trip to Caesars Palace’s Forum Shops.

Also on Friday, Spears went into the Palms’ recording studio with producer Lukasz Gottwald (Dr Luke) to mix tracks on her new album.

“She looks and sounds great,” a source tells PEOPLE. “Her voice never sounded better. She’s having fun. She’s ready to kick a–.”

Britney also did pretty well at the tables, gambling at The Mint, the Palms’ high-limit lounge. There, Britney – wearing a short, black dress – caught a lucky streak, raking in $10,000 in winnings from blackjack.

She also was introduced to Mario Lopez at The Mint. The two, along with a small group, then headed up to Moon Nightclub and partied the night away.
