Lance Bass Talks About Britney

Written by admin. Posted in Custody Battle

After all these years, Lance Bass still remains ‘N Sync with longtime friend Britney Spears.
“I saw her last night,” Bass, 28, told PEOPLE on Thursday at a Los Angeles signing of his new memoir, Out of Sync.

“I went over to the house. It was great,” he said. “I went over to see the kids, and you can tell she’s really trying so hard to get herself back in order.”

Bass writes in his autobiography that Spears, 25, was instrumental in his decision to speak out about his sexuality.

“She was one of the first people that I came out to. We grew up together, basically. She was the first opening act that we had,” he said at the signing, “and she was dating Justin [Timberlake, his bandmate]. We’ll always have that family vibe between us.”

So what does he make of Spears’s ongoing troubles? (Despite strong initial sales of her new album Blackout, she remains embroiled in her messy custody battle with ex Kevin Federline.)

Bass partly perceives her problem as a matter of being a single act as opposed to having been in a group.

Teen superstardom was “easy when you have four of your best friends on tour with you at all times,” he says, recalling his own ‘N Sync days. “If your head gets a little big, you have four guys slapping you and going, ‘What the hell are you doing?’ ”

By contrast, Spears “was by herself. It’s different when you’re a solo act, and you don’t have anyone around you telling you no.”

Bass’s advice to Britney now is simple. “Just be yourself,” he says, “and remember where you came from.”

Britney Plans To Sue Sellout Former Assistant

Written by admin. Posted in Legal Matters

Looks like Britney Spears’ courtroom days aren’t anywhere near done – according to Brit’s pal Sam, the pop princess plans to pursue legal action her old assistant Kalie Machado for violating a non-disclosure agreement!

The former employee, who worked for Brit for less than two months, just sold a story to Us Weekly, detailing what she claims are private details of Brit’s mid- and post-divorce state of mind. From what we’ve read so far, the “details” aren’t much but a re-hash of what we’ve already read in other articles, but we hear Team Britney is pissed and Brit’s lawyers want to make an example of this former employee coming forward and telling supposed “stories” about her.

Sounds like Brit’s assistant might want to set some of that Us Weekly money aside – she’s gonna need a good lawyer!

Britney Hit With Lawsuit From Former Manager

Written by admin. Posted in Legal Matters

Between her hit-and-run in August and her custody battle with Kevin Federline, Britney Spears sure is keeping her lawyers busy!

And her attorneys got even more business handed to them on Thursday: A lawsuit filed against Spears by her former manager, Johnny Wright.

TMZ reports that while Spears, 25, and Wright parted ways in 2003, the manager claims she contractually owes him commissions for deals negotiated on her behalf through February 2008. And, according to Wright, Brit stopped paying in December of 2006.

Wright exclusively tells Usmagazine.com: “I have a great deal of affection and empathy for her. As you know, I was a part of her career from the early days, but we have contractual disagreements that unfortunately can only be resolved in the courts, despite my wishes!”

Full Details Of Britney's Halloween

Written by admin. Posted in Custody Battle

After her odd call-in interview to Ryan Seacrest’s radio show Wednesday morning, it was time for Britney Spears to kick off her Halloween festivities that literally went all night long. The 25-year-old mother of two spent the day with her boys, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, but once they were back in daddy Kevin Federline’s arms, the real party started for the Britster. And OK! is here to give you a blow-by-blow of her Hallow’s Eve itinerary.

10:00 am: Sean Preston and Jayden James arrive for a day of fun and monitored observance with their mommy at Summit. Per court order, Britney is allowed now three monitored visits per week with her sons.

2:00 pm: Along with the court-assigned observer, Brit and the boys take a joy ride into Beverly Hills, but don’t stop anywhere and come home. Along the way, the newly licensed driver makes at least two illegal U-turns!

5:50 pm: Brit drives the boys and the monitor over to the Maloof brothers’ house for a party and return home an hour later.

8:35 pm: K-Fed’s team pick up the boys, who are supposed to be brought back to daddy by 7 pm. Perhaps an exception was made for Halloween?

12:05 am: The night is young! Decked out in a belly-baring hot pink and black leopard pattern catsuit, complete with a long tail and ears and an oversized pink sombrero, Britney kicks off the night at The Green Door Club in Hollywood. She arrives in a black Escalade limo with Alli Sims and Sam Lutfi. Her posse was in full-out party mode with Alli dressed in a school girl outfit with a personalized X-17 name tag. Is this a shout-out to “Baby One More Time”?

The pop star spends approximately 40 minutes inside the club, where she was seated in a circular velvet booth in the center and then moved to the back for more privacy. While Alli broke it down on the dance floor, Brit uncharacteristically chose not to show off any dance moves, opting to puff away on Marlboro Lights. She wasn’t up for socializing either – fans were prohibited from approaching her and at one point, she tells a bouncer she’s uncomfortable with everyone’s stares.

12:48am: Brit finally has enough and departs the Green Door, where major insanity ensues.

2:00 am: Because of roadblocks, it takes more than an hour for Britney to arrive at her next destination — a house party in the Hollywood Hills, where she remained the rest of the evening. Who calls it a night this early?
