Do you have that sober friend that you have to behave in front of? Is there a Lindsay Lohan in your group? I had an alcoholic friend once and I would have to hide all the alcohol in my house when she would come over and skip the glass of wine when we had dinner together.
Well Britney Spears’ friends are feeling that sobriety by association pain. Back in Britney’s crazy period, she had a serious drinking problem. When she lost custody of her kids, the judge ordered her to take random drug and alcohol tests. So to make sure that Britney wouldn’t have the urge to slip, she told her friends that they are not allowed to drink around her.. and that rule still applies.
Britney and 7 of her friends all went to the Four Seasons Hotel in LA recently and some of them waited for her at the bar. They ordered drinks but whenever Brit showed up, they abandoned their bevies and sat with her at a table. A waitress that wasn’t aware of the situation showed up with the bar drinks and tried to sit them at the table. The friends pushed the drinks away and denied that it was theirs.
Soon as Britney left though, a handful of those friends returned to the bar and proceeded to get drunk.
What’s that old adage? Once the addict is away, the mice will play drinking game?
At least they are respectful of Britney’s wishes.
Sources are blaming it all on Kris, saying that she was fame and money hungry and Bruce didn’t approve of selling out their family, especially the younger two daughters, for financial gain.
Well now we are hearing that it’s still Kris’ fault but it’s not because she’s a fame monster.. It’s because she aspires to be a cougar.
A source revealed that the 57-year old momager decided to leave her husband because she wants to start dating younger men. And that kinda makes sense. You can tell that she wants to be a hot Kardashian sister instead of their mother. Remember that bikini pic that she posted just a month or so again? She really wants to prove that she’s as hot as her daughters.
And Kris has already gone out with a few young guys that we know. She went out on some dinner date with Britney Spears’ ex-fiancé, 42-year old Jason Trawick. She was decked out in this tight fitting black lace dress and no wedding ring.
If Bruce and Kris choose to get divorced, it will be expensive. They never signed a prenup and they’re now worth $125 million. As of now, they say that they have no plans on divorcing.
After their brief reunion, Lamar supposedly flew out to New York to talk to some different basketball teams. And he brought proof that he is clean and sober.
Maybe it’s not too late for them after all. If Lamar can clean up his act long enough to secure a job, maybe there’s still time for him to save his marriage.
Remember last year when they did some cheesy look-we’re-still together photo op at a Christmas tree farm? They frolicked and kissed. Bruce even picked up Kris for a minute before he had to put her down. Well, that was all for show and they were split up even then.
Kris didn’t just release a statement because that’s not her style. She instead sold her story to Us Weekly. She told them, “We are living apart. But there is no animosity. We are united and committed to our family. We ended a marriage, but that’s not the end of our friendship. I will always love him, but we are [no] longer a couple in that way.”
They also released a joint statement, saying, “We are living separately and we are much happier this way . . . We will always remain best friends and, as always, our family will remain our number one priority.”
As far as the reason behind the split, sources say that it’s because Kris is a money-hungry fame monster and Bruce just wanted a simpler life. He wanted to announce the split awhile ago but she wouldn’t allow it because it wouldn’t be good for their show.
They have no plans of divorcing as of now. They want to just keep things the way they are and live separate lives. Maybe it’s because Bruce will walk away with half of the family fortune when they do get divorced.
Bruce and Kris never signed a prenup when they got married. Back then, Bruce was the breadwinner of the family with all of his Olympic and endorsement deals and he didn’t think a prenup was necessary.
Now the family is worth $125mil and Bruce is entitled to half.. Of course, there is nothing that Kris LOVE$ more than money so she will try to give Bruce as little as possible. If he really wants to stick it to her, he can just fight back hard and try to take everything that he can.
Wouldn’t it be ironic if he hired Robert Shapiro, one of OJ Simpson’s lawyers, to rep him? Or maybe Kim’s divorce attorney Laura Wasser? Ha!
Kris was already spotted out without her wedding ring.. Oddly enough, she was actually out with Britney Spears ex-fiancé Jason Trawick when she decided to make her first public outing without the ring.
Even though the family is full of marriage problems and the ratings are at an all-time low, the Keeping up with the Kardashians show will go on. In fact just right after the separation was made public, Bruce went to go film scenes with Kendall and Kylie.
The upcoming season will focus on Bruce and Kris living separately but they will still come together for family functions.
And could this timing be any better? Maybe this separation will be just what the show needs to get people to tune in again.
But I wonder, how did momager and daughter decide who would get to announce their split first? Maybe Kris decided to go first to take the heat off of Khloe?
Khloe and Lamar were photographed together in the first time for months yesterday but sources say that the marriage is still over, they were just rallying together to support Kris. They have yet to announce that their marriage is over but it’s only a matter of time before they have to admit it.
Or did Kris go public first to show Khloe that it’s ok to get a divorce? I think that’s kinda extreme if she did… Didn’t Kim already teach her that divorce is always ok, even 72 days in?
Britney Spears officially announced that she will be taking up residency in Vegas at the Planet Hollywood for the next two years. The tickets went on sale on Friday but they aren’t selling out as fast as everyone anticipated.
Out of 16 shows, she only sold out the first three and that has investors upset. They thought that Britney could easily sell out all 16 shows immediately.
An insider said, “Many are considering this a disaster . . . [it] really isn’t looking well for Britney. Ticket sales need to start skyrocketing or else there’s going to be a lot of disappointed investors and people involved with the show.”
And others are already complaining that Britney is just going to get on stage and lip-synch. One source told the New York Daily News, ”Britney does not sing. She is being paid a lot of money to lip-sync. Her fans are none the wiser, but it is disingenuous of her to take their cash and not deliver a proper performance. She hasn’t sung live for a couple of years. If the crowd thinks they are being cheated then there is likely to be an uproar.”
Britney’s camp insists that she will be going on live though. Her rep responded, ”Britney will be singing. As stated before, she is in vocal training – has been for months.”
Britney’s first show in Vegas starts in late December so she still has time to sell out those tickets.. and I guess work extra hard on that vocal training.
Britney Spears just officially announced her Vegas residency. She will be performing at Planet Hollywood at the end of this year, earning $30mil for 100 shows over the next two years.
But there is a clause in her contract because Britney isn’t exactly a safe bet. Simon Cowell admitted that she couldn’t even talk on X-Factor, she can’t do live interviews or performances, but she seems to do well as long as she is being controlled by her daddy Jamie.
So Planet Hollywood put a stipulation in her contract.. If her conservatorship is to end, they have the right to cancel her contract. She will be guarded while she’s in Vegas though. She will have her medical team and her psychiatrist with her so she can turn to them if she starts having any problems.
And she’s not moving to Vegas because she doesn’t want to disrupt her sons’ lives. She will just be flying in a lot on the weekends that the boys are with their father, Kevin Federline.
