Britney Spears Paparazzi Deal; Britney Spears Tipping Off Photographers, Says Former Employee
A former Britney Spears employee claims the pop star has been tipping the paparazzi off to her whereabouts in an effort to maintain tabloid stardom.
“Even though Britney hasn’t actually released an album for such a long time, she has remained in the limelight through making herself a tabloid target,” a former Spears employee told FOXNews.com. “She deliberately goes out in very public places where she knows the paps will be, but turns around and pretends that they are ruining her life.”
The employee recalled a recent incident at The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills in which Brit insisted on “checking in” for just an hour or two for some tabloid treatment.
According to the source, Spears was advised by her people not to go anywhere near the hotel as dozens of cameras were there due to the fact that a few big-name films were holding press junkets that day.
“She caused an absolute frenzy with the media,” Fox’s insider claims. “She checked in, lay out by the pool in public view in her bikini and then left after just a couple of hours when it started to die down a bit. It was ridiculous. I don’t feel sorry for her, she totally asks for the attention.”
The owner of a Beverly Hills boutique where Britney is a regular dishes that the star tips off photogs before arriving for a shopping spree:
“The paparazzi start culminating outside hours before she even gets here,” the store owner says. “They are always given the heads up of approximate times she’ll be arriving, and often I receive a call as well. Sometimes it sounds like her bodyguard, but other times I’m sure it is Ms. Spears herself letting me know what time she’ll be here.”
