Britney Spears and Kevin Federline reached a divorce settlement Thursday, T.H. Gossip has learned.

"The parties signed a global settlement on all issues of their marriage and the custody of the children," Michael Sands, a spokesman for Federline's attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, tells People.

Britney O-Face

The deal was worked out in five-hour meeting in the Los Angeles high-rise offices of Spears' attorney, Laura Wasser. At the bargaining table were Spears, Wasser, Kaplan and FedEx.

Details of the agreement haven't been released, but a source close to the couple tells Us Weekly that reports of a $1 million settlement and a "50/50" custody agreement are "inaccurate."

On the afternoon of March 29, Britney Spears left her Beverly Hills home in a black Escalade with her bodyguard and arrived at Wasser's Century City office.

Kevin Federline arrived in a white Chevy Yukon 20 minutes later with two bodyguards and parked in in the underground garage in the same building.

At one point during the meeting, K-Fed went outside to smoke a cigarette, yo, and was joined by Britney.

"They had a 15-minute conversation," Sands said.

Wonder if it involved some of the stuff Isaac Cohen said about her. Regardless, the pact comes just days after Spears left rehab on March 20, after just under a month in detox.

Spears and Federline got married in September 2004 in a surprise ceremony and soon settled into a Malibu mansion. The couple had two sons, Sean Preston in September 2005 and Jayden James in September 2006. For a time, all was well. 

But Spears filed for divorce on November 7, 2006, irreconcilable differences being cited as the primary reason. In a temporary agreement, Spears had custody of the boys with three days of visitation for Federline.

The singer began months of hard partying in New York, Miami, Las Vegas and Los Angeles, hooking up for awhile with Paris Hilton and deciding panties were just too constricting.

She initially defended her partying as long-overdue fun, but by January, her manager, Larry Rudolph, acknowledged she was having a rough time.

After a wild weekend in which she shaved her head, Britney Spears entered rehab at Promises, where she stayed for about four weeks. K-Fed, who took care of Sean and Jayden during her treatment, declined to return custody to Brit until he was satisfied with her rehab.

Heather Mills is not a hero.

While the motorcycle accident that took one of her legs over a decade ago was tragic, this isn't a story of Lance Armstrong battling his way back from cancer to win the Tour de France over and over. That took courage and inhuman persistance.

Heather Mills' Bad Hair

Mills took a prosthetic limb.

If props must be given for the fact that this woman can compete on Dancing with the Stars, then direct them all to the advancements made in medicine over the years. After all, Heather has also proven she can ski and kick people with the leg. Dancing was a natural progression.

It followed nude photos and gold-digging.

We're more impressed by the fact that Kristin Cavallari can read than we are by Mills being able to dance the two-step.

Or that the penis of Randy Spelling hasn't fallen off after having inserted it inside the STD vacuum of Paris Hilton.

When a couple of our favorite cuties get together, it's always cause for celebration. Here, Christina Milian and Lauren Conrad set their sights on making a bold fashion statement at the Oakley Women's Eyewear launch party at the Sunset Tower Hotel in West Hollywood.

It's good to see Lauren Conrad, the star of MTV's The Hills, out and about, happy and doing her thing - not getting sucked into a dangerous life of crime that has already claimed two of her former Laguna Beach cast members.

So Many Choices

Earlier this month, Conrad's ex, Jason Wahler, was arrested for the 718th time in an underage drinking sting, then was sentenced to 60 days in jail for an unrelated assault charge.

This week, Jessica Smith - the less-attractive girl Wahler cheated on LC with - was busted for DUI and held in an Orange County jail for three days.

Eight months into his relationship with Jessica Simpson, John Mayer has passed an important, severely annoying, untalented hurdle:

He's won the approval of Ashlee Simpson. Whoop dee do.

Eric Johnson and Jessica Simpson

"Ashlee loves John Mayer," a Simpson pal tells People in its new issue. "She thinks he is great for her. More importantly, Jess is happy."

Ashlee Simpson isn't the only one in a positive mood.

"John seems very smitten," says another Simpson pal.

Just back from a romantic trip to Rome, Mayer and Simpson have been making the amore last back in L.A., with kisses over lunch, nuzzles at a James Morrison concert and hand-in-hand strolls.

On March 20, Simpson, 26, and Mayer, 29, happily snapped pictures with fans at a gig of Mayer's bandmate David Ryan Harris at the Hotel Cafe.

And catching Morrison's show at the Roxy, "They were smooching throughout," says a fellow concertgoer. Afterwards, over plastic surgery cocktails at Parc restaurant with Ashlee, 22.

"They were holding hands and laughing constantly," says an onlooker. "Jessica looks really comfortable with him."

Friends say Simpson is relishing this romance, which is low-key compared to her time with ex-husband Nick Lachey (or her sex romp with Bam Margera).

"When she was with Nick, she was really under her family's thumb," says a friend. "This is a relationship that is all hers."

Kind of how Ashlee feels about her new nose, chin and boobs. Oh, snap. Observes another pal, Christina Milian, who was in Simpson's "Public Affair" video:

"Clearly this is a relationship that's not for the cameras. It's not about celebrity. It seems like they truly have an attraction to each other, and they're both clearly very talented as well."

No word on whether Pete Wentz approves of John Mayer. Or whether he tells his friends that he's not dating Ashlee Simpson.

She's no Antonella Barba.

Granted, Haley Scarnato has been receiving a lot of attention recently for her looks - but there's one difference between this American Idol contestant and the one that was best known for her sex photos: Haley can sing.

Believing He Can Fly

Well enough, in fact, to have cracked at least the top nine on the show. Let's get to know her a bit better, courtest of this People magazine profile ...

Age: 24
Relationship Status: Engaged to Bobby Krudwig, a sales executive
Pre-Idol: Wedding singer in her native San Antonio
Fame Factor: Although she thinks it's "cute" that she has a fan club called "Haley's Comet," Scarnato doesn't want to know much more than that.

"I completely stay away from the Internet and gossip â€" it's scary," she says. "I got recognized recently, which was weird. They said something about my mole!"

* The Hollywood Gossip note: Come on, Haley, you're not curious to read about The Bachelor, Andy Baldwin?

Guest Mentor She's Psyched to Meet: "Martina McBride," says the country fan. "I love her."
What's On Her iPod? "I love Elvis, which is shocking to people for some reason."
On Being Judged: "Some comments are pretty harsh. Ryan Seacrest lightens the mood. It's nice to have him on that big stage next to you."

And with that, Scarnato left to stick pins in her voodoo doll of Sanjaya Malakar. No, we're just kidding.

It's not always so easy to see the error of your ways. Look at how long it took Stavros Niarchos to stop dating Paris Hilton.

Or Tara Conner to realize that cocaine, alcohol and representing your country as a young, hot woman just don't mix.

A Shooting Star

Fortunately, most people do come around eventually. And, by the look of this picture below, it appears as though Al Reynolds has finally realized that he married Star Jones. It's okay, Al. You were probably blinded by The View before.

But take a look at that blubbery arm now! The flesh is looser than Lindsay Lohan...

The not-at-all happy couple is celebrating Jones' birthday with a bunch of people who must have showed up at the wrong party. We're assuming guests here would prefer to have atttended the bash for Lauren Conrad instead.

Oh well. You can't get everything you want. As Reynolds now knows. After all, he probably wants a wife who isn't ugly and self-serving.

Jason Wahler would be smiling if he could see this.

Our counterparts at TMZ have learned that troubled Laguna Beach star Jessica Smith has just been released from an Orange County jail after being charged with two misdemeanor counts of DUI.

Smith, 19, spent nearly three days behind bars after her arrest Monday on suspicion of felony driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and causing "great bodily injury" during a car crash on the Santa Ana Freeway near L.A. This hot Jessica Smith mug shot soon followed.

Man, everyone is getting busted for driving wasted these days. Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, Vivica A. Fox, Taboo.

DUI is totally becoming the new stalking!

Jessica Smith had a blood alcohol level of .12, significantly above California's legal limit of .08. She's also underage, of course. Ouch.

TMZ reports that because Smith wasn't charged with a felony (unlike her loser ex-boyfriend), her bail was reduced from $100,000 to $5,000, but Smith was apparently unable to raise even the reduced sum until today.

Under the terms of her release, Smith has been ordered not to drink alcohol and to attend one AA meeting a week until her arraignment April 25. Maybe she and Britney Spears can go to the same meetings. Cute!

Jessica recently took some off from Orange County's Saddleback College to tour Europe as a spokesperson for the travel guide, "Let's Go."

She then returned to school (and Season 3 of Laguna Beach, loser), but that may change if she returns to the Big House instead! Oh snap!

We've told you about the release date for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.

Now, take a look at the cover of the final installment in the amazing series by J.K. Rowling:

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

It's very ... yellow. But we can't wait to read the final adventure. We just hope the book is half as exciting as the way Daniel Radcliffe spent his free time away from the big screen version of Harry Potter.

Meanwhile, it's been confirmed that Emma Watson will return for the final two movies in the series. So fans can rest easy about that. They can go back to wondering about whether or not Alaina Alexander is actually dating Chris Richardson.

We could really go on and on. Oh, we forgot Kate Bosworth. Sorry about that.

The point is: Courtney Love is looking very, very thin these days. We know she used to sing with the band, Hole, but does that mean she has to hole herself up in a basement with no food all day? Well ... does it?!?

Court Love

In the past, we were afraid to see Courtney Love nude - but now we're just afraid that we won't be able to see Courtney Love at all if she continues at this pace. Hopefully, her good friend Billy Corgan will step in soon and offer assistance.

Until then, eat up, Court. Hire Rachael Ray to bake you some snacks or something.

And Kate Hudson is also quite thin. Almost forgot to mention her.

Singer Michelle Branch, who is apparently still around, doesn't take any crap from the audience. Well, at least not when it includes people who have been stalking her.

The "Everywhere" singer had an audience member arrested during a concert in Sheboygan, Wis., Monday after recognizing a man who has allegedly been following and harassing her.

As Michelle Branch took the stage to perform an encore at the Stefanie H. Weill Center for the Performing Arts, the cute singer reportedly froze up before begging security to apprehend 32-year-old Dominick Giordano.

He allegedly tried to bolt, but was quickly arrested by Sheboygan Police and cited for disorderly conduct. His mug shot appears below, next to a hot picture of Branch. Yeeeah. He's not creepy or anything. 

Authorities say Giordano has been following the "Everywhere" singer around the country since 2003 and regularly sends her letters and videos.

In the police report, cops say Giordano has previously "managed to lie his way backstage" at Branch's concerts, "sneak into after-concert parties" and also "allegedly lunged at Ms. Branch during an autograph signing event."

Man, if Michelle Branch is getting harassed this bad, you can imagine what bigger celebs such as Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera have to deal with.

According to TMZ, Branch was "scared" by a "particularly disturburbing" incident, and expressed concern for the safety of her 19-month-old daughter, who was also at the show.

Giordano was released after posting a $150 bond. This is easily one of the weirdest stories of the week. Who stalks Michelle Branch? Who's next, Jeff Goldblum? Oh, wait...
