Monday Afternoon Britney Update: Private Eye Edition

It really is another day, another drama for "Miss Bad Media Karma" herself, Britney Spears. While her weekend was relatively quiet on the gossip front, today there are quite a few Brit updates. First, we learned that Kevin will get the boys for Thanksgiving, though Britney will be able to have a turkey day celebration with the boys on Wednesday and visit with them on Thursday morning. Next, Life & Style is reporting that Britney and her brother are in legal trouble for trashing a condo they leased in Marina Del Ray in 2006. Britney has also apparently hired two new important people in her life — a driver (finally) and a private eye to try to dig up dirt on Kevin. She is supposedly hoping that they can catch Kevin in the act of smoking or drinking in front of the kids in order to have some leverage in the custody battle. Just when I think it can't get any more complicated, it always does.

it sounds like she is getting some better legal advice - finally. She should not have been allowed to let Kevin's lawyers score all these publicity points against her.

Kookaile, you hit the nail on the head. Her life does remind me of scary Jerry Springer bits! I am sad for Brit, but I am even sadder for those little boys. Girl needs help, like yesterday. DO IT FOR YOUR BOYS, BRIT!!!!

in the words of the luckiest man to get out alive "what goes around comes around" and she is feeling that 100 fold.

Once again, I'm appalled at the things that come out of peoples' mouths.

And honestly: a few months ago it was always a shocker to read Britney-News. But now I'm really done with it! It got to the point where it strongly reminds me of scary Jerry Springer bits. That's too sick.

"Miss Bad Media Karma" - come on, this girl is just stupid as someone can be!!! Actually, I wonder how much power her mother had back in the old days, when everybody thought, Britney is a nice girl??? I remember how irritating her video diaries were. We just see her now, how she really is and always was!

Exactly why would Britney Spears hire a private eye before proposing to Kevin Federline him. She KNEW that he had a child and a baby on the way with another woman and STILL pursued him. And Federline wasn't the first man in a "family-style" relationship that she tried to pursue...he was at least the third...the other 2 were dancers as well with pregnant girlfriends back at home. She's always been self-centered and selfish, and people only realize (or care) now because her kids involved. Nobody cared when it was Kori and Kaleb, and Shar's other 2 all the fans and media, were more worried about Spears being used, and less about her impeding on 2 (+2) children's lives. Wake up and smell the Big Mac, chick is off her rockers and has been for YEARS, there is no "coming back"...SHE BLOWS!!!

1. Sh*tney actively chased after K-Fed, knowing that his girlfriend was preggers. She didn't care, just wanted a man. :INNOCENT: 2. Sh*tney asked K-Fed to marry her! Bought her own engagement ring, and his ring. :ROTRL: 3. Sh*tney was caught with kids on her lap driving, then in car seats facing the wrong way. 4. Sh*tney filed for divorce. 5. Sh*tney filed for full custody of the kids. 6. Sh*tney is an adult, although in age only! My hubby and I feel that she is emotionally retarded, and behaves like a 12 year old would. That is about the age of her mental and emotional state. :baby: 7. Sh*tney has hired PI's in the past, yet has come up with nothing. 8. Sh*tney gets paid by the paps to tell them were she is going, and wants and thrives on the constant attention. 9. Sh*tney is SICK and take thoses little ones away from her before they are as damaged as she is. :IRK:

I don't like either one of them as parents for obvious reasons. But she should have started her fight with him along time ago, by hiring someone to tail him. She is waaaay behind in this game with him. She needs to stop shopping and traveling and make a real game plan. She also need to get mental help on the side. Because she still doesn't have more than her priorities straight.

she should have hired the private eye BEFORE she married him or while she was contemplating divorce. poor thing. go to rehab and clean yourself up, Britney, and you should be able to get your kids back.

So, if you hire a private investigator, wouldn't it be a better idea to make sure the tabloids don't find out about it? There's no way she can find dirt on Kevin if he knows he's being investigated! Also, even if she did get some dirt on Kevin, that doesn't prove that she should get custody. All that would prove is that neither of them were good parents. If she actually wants custody back, she needs to work on cleaning up herself.

At the rate Britney spends, she may go broke. She has thrashed her own public image, so the royalties will slow down. Her album didn't sell too well and she has no promotional activity or tour for income. Kevin made half a million for the Superbowl commercial he made. He got another $250,000 or so for a promotional appearance earlier this year, and that was all just first quarter. Probably didn't get as much for his appearances on that tv show he did over the summer/fall, but he make money. Due to the notoriety of being Britney's ex husband he can't exactly resume being a back up dancer, or go on a long tour with the current custody issues. His low reported earnings were NET income, not gross. By the time he pays rent, security, food, etc. the amount reported was what he had left. So if you're going to try telling it as it is, you might want to gather the facts.

I aint supportin anyone nor am I one of Britney's fans.Im just tellin it how it is.he made 500.000 this year? And y was it reported in court that he makes around 20.000 or so a month? he is a dancer! i dont see him dancing,whatever else he does is because of him being Britney's ex husband. And silly, Britney does have a job,she worked hard for about a decade, so that now she can stay at home and receive the royalities and she never needs to work a day again.Ask someone in the bussiness and they'll tell u about it.Dont let the tabloids do the thinkin for you,but stop for a moment and think a bit.For a moment I thought She was trying to do Madonna during Erotica's crazy period, but now I think she's lost it and she's gone too far.But stop judging and being so harsh ppl-karma's a b!tch as we know's up with her pimples does anyone knows?so ugly

your right kevin does work-he is a homemaker. sorry no matter how insane britney gets, you will never convince me that kevin is some noble saviour. he went in for the money, went out for the money and britney turning into a psychopath was just a lucky turn of events for him.

Desperate times call for desperate measures, I suppose. I don't think Kevin will do anything dumb, and if he's doing it just for the money, then he REALLY won't do anything dumb.

Thank you Ginger for pointing out that Kevin is working. Not everyone can get paid $800,000 a month for doing nothing like Britney. People also tend to forget he has other kids whose mother supports Kevin. Also, Shar helps him out with Sean and Jayden.
