When it comes to the ongoing legal battle between Britney Spears and her former manager Sam Lutfi, E! News can confirm that the pop singer will not be taking the stand when the trial starts next week.
And here's why...
E! News has obtained the witness list for Lutfi's defamation
trial against Spears and her parents, but Brit's name isn't on that list
because the probate judge issued an order stating that since she is
still under a conservatorship, she cannot be called to testify.
Reva Goetz, who has been overseeing Spears' conservatorship since 2008,
ruled that putting Britney on the stand would cause her "irreparable
harm and immediate danger."
But Spears' fiancé Jason Trawick is not so lucky.
Because Trawick was recently appointed to serve as Britney's co-conservator over her person (sharing the duties with Britney's father), he will be called to testify.
Also expected to take the stand are Spears' mother, Lynne, her father, James, the
custodian of records for UCLA Medical Center where Spears was briefly
hospitalized, Britney's former rumored boyfriend photographer Adnan Ghalib and another X17 photographer formerly close to the star.
Lutfi filed his lawsuit
against Spears in February 2009 for libel, defamation, battery,
intentional infliction of emotional distress and breach of contract
after the publication of Lynne Spears' book Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, in which Lutfi alleges he was slandered.
On Glee’s second episode of the season, the group did a mash
up of Britney Spears and Justin Bieber songs. This episode started off
with Brittany explaining how she is the cheer captain then broke into a
mash up of Britney Spears’ song “Hold it against me.”
Brittany was then told by Coach Sylvester she is off the cheer squad
because her grades are not as good as they should be to stay on an
extracurricular activity. She seems not that bothered by it, but she is
compulsively eating, now.
Rachel and Kurt are now looking for a place to live together in New
York. Kurt says he is going to apply to go to NYADA for the second
semester. In the meanwhile, he is going to find a job while Rachel is
still dealing with her dance professor “hating” her. Rachel now
understands why she is the way she is. Kurt apparently knew of who she
was. Her outbreak at a performance because an audience member had his
cell phone go off during her show, explains why she is the way she is.
During a mash up of Britney Spears’ song “Boys” and Justin Bieber’s
song “Boyfriend,” Brittany just got up and almost shaved her head. Mr.
Schuester thinks she may be having a little trouble with accepting the
fact she got held back a year because her grades were not that good. She
then went out of the classroom to her locker and was bombarded by
paparazzi and reenacted how Spears once went haywire on paparazzi with
In the meanwhile, Rachel’s professor thinks she does not have the sex
appeal to be in a tango piece. She then did her rendition of Spears’
song “Oops! I did it again.” Still, her professor was not impressed and
Rachel told her off about how she has a washed up career, so her
professor kicked her out of the class.
Marley’s struggle with having her mother as the lunch lady continues.
Students are still making fun of her, and each time she says “That’s my
mother!”, yet they still don’t shut up. Her possible new beau, Jake,
stood up for her and started a fight with the two guys who made fun of
her mother this time.
Not entirely sure if it was a good idea for Rachel to go back and
apologize for what she said because her professor does not believe in
second chances. Under the school policy, Rachel only gets a warning and
is back in the class.
After the pep rally at McKinley high, which Brittany was eating
cheese puffs on stage during her performance, Mr. Schuester yelled at
the Glee Club for lip-syncing. Lip-syncing is never accepted in Glee
Club, and because the whole group was looking to help Brittany out
because she is having issues lately, she walked out and quit Glee Club.
Brittany then went back in to try to get her spot back on the cheer
squad and since her grades are getting back to where they should be, Ms.
Sylvester let her back in. Also, Jake is now in the Glee Club, after he
has a new girlfriend who made it known to Marley that she won’t be
getting her man anytime soon.
Rachel is still having trouble missing Finn, and having her new
possible crush on Brody there; it may be hard for her to miss Finn as
much as she did.
The episode next week features actress, Sarah Jessica Parker in it.
Things may start heating up between Rachel and Brody as well as student
elections are underway! They may get a little more out of control than
what was supposed to happen.
She’s gone blonde, brunette, even bald, but this is something we’ve never seen on Britney Spears before.
The pop star debuted teal, blue and hot pink tips over the weekend at
the iHeartRadio Music Festival in Las Vegas. And Spears must have been
happy with how her My Little Pony-inspired mane came out because she decided to stick with the look, wearing it out in Calabasas, Calif., on Monday.
We’re used to seeing this kind of bold ‘do from her X Factor co-judge Demi Lovato,
but Spears has been playing it relatively safe with her strands since
joining the show, sticking with her signature blonde color.
So, we’re a little surprised to see the singer sport such a funky
hairstyle. That said, we have to give Spears props for trying something
fresh (and having the style sense to rock her Technicolor mane with a
