Britney Almost In Tears As She´s Forced To Send Home Teen On X Factor

Britney Spears X Factor CryingLast night it was time for L.A. Reid, Demi Lovato, Simon Cowell and Britney Spears to slice the X Factor acts down from 16 to 12.

‘They’re like my children, so it’s going to be very hard to choose which one of my children will go home,’ Britney said, presumably not meaning that she’s driven with her acts on her knee as she did with Sean Preston when he was five months old.

But she did drop one of them, as he nearly did with Sean again allegedly back in 2006, and in all seriousness, it seemed like a painful decision to make for the sensitive star.

The beauty decided to send 13-year-old Diamond White home after her amazingly moving version of Elton John’s Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word.

Khloe faced a hiccup as she tried to yelling over the baying crowd to ask Simon whether it would be easy for him tonight, he replied with an annoyed: ‘Sorry?’ 

Each mentor picked two of their four acts for a safe pass through, then the remaining two acts in each category had to sing for survival.

In the Young Adults group (ages 17-24), Demi put through Jennel Garcia and Paige Thomas.

Backstage, sobbing Jennel told Khloe: ‘I’m so happy for myself.’ While Paige was dumbstruck, and could only say: ‘I can’t put into words what this means.’

After Diamond’s Elton balladeering, L.A told her: ‘You are a sensational vocalist, no matter you have a real future in this business.’ Demi added: ‘I like the soul and fire behind your eyes,’ and Simon pitied poor Britney her decision. 

‘This is like the hardest decision ever,’ she said.

When she finally sent Diamond home with a pained expression on her face as she tried to halt the tears, the youngster said bravely: ‘I’m still going to keep smiling. I still love you, Britney.’

Judge Throws Sam Lutfi´s Case Against Britney Spears Out Of Court

Written by admin. Posted in Legal Matters, Personal Issues

Britney Spears and Sam LutfiBritney Spears‘ former confidante and self-professed manager failed to prove his libel and breach-of-contract claims against the singer’s parents and her caretakers, a judge who dismissed the case mid-trial ruled Thursday.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Suzanne Bruguera said an attorney for Sam Lutfi hadn’t proven any of his allegations in the case that centered on events before the singer’s public meltdown more than four years ago.

Lutfi’s side rested its case Tuesday, but Bruguera agreed with arguments by attorneys for Spears’ father and her conservators that there wasn’t sufficient evidence to send the claims to a jury.

Lutfi had sued Lynne Spears for libel and the singer’s father, Jamie, for allegedly hitting him at the singer’s mansion in an incident shortly before Jamie Spears and others were granted control over the singer’s life. Lutfi also had claimed he was owed a 15 percent share of the singer’s earnings, but Bruguera disagreed.

Lutfi left the courtroom without speaking to reporters, and attorneys on both sides of the case declined to comment.

The case centered on many of Britney Spears’ darkest moments, including a pair of psychiatric hospitalizations that led to her father being named her conservator. Her fiance, Jason Trawick, was added as a co-conservator earlier this year. The arrangement is overseen by a probate judge who had directed them not to allow the singer to appear at the trial.
