Blame Paris Hilton for our delay in getting up Britney Spears news today. The lawbreaking hotel heiress is hogging all the celebrity gossip headlines.
But we do have the following to report on the troubled mother of Mr. Jayden James Federline:
She is NOT dating her drug counselor John Sundahl, as reports had earlier claimed. Sundahl, who acts as Spears' drug counselor - and is doing a bang up job - was linked to the star after they reportedly met up at his Beverly Hillshouse to discuss follow-up treatment after her spell in rehab earlier this year.
The man who could probably assist Richie Sambora right about now simply said: "I am not having a relationship with Britney Spears."
Meanwhile, another singer feels badly for Brit: the ever-popular bjork. The weird one recalls how dealing with fame became too much for her during the height of her career (yes, both days of it) in the 1990s when she was living in the U.K., prompting her to attack a journalist who tried to talk to her 10-year-old son.
Wow. Even Spears didn't do that. But she has delayed flights and possibly hooked up with Ryan Phillippe.
Bjork says she can relate to The Hollywood Gossip's favorite celeb, who is hoping to revive her career after a stint in rehab and constant press criticism about her parenting skills and party lifestyle.
"I definitely feel sympathy for Britney, but I had a choice. I could move away. She can't," Bjork said.
It's true. Spears is actually being forced to get drunk and publicly diss her mom.
