Rumors of a pregnant Britney Spears have been setting the celebrity gossip world ablaze. Unfortunately (or fortunately) it now appears they're bogus.
In a text message to Ryan Seacrest's KIIS-FM radio show in Los Angeles Wednesday, Britney's friend, Sam Lutfi, debunked In Touch Weekly's cover story that declares Spears is expecting another baby - with her ex, J.R. Rotem.
"It's BS," Sam said. "Don't know who made it up. J.R. doesn't even know what's up."
The wisdom of Sam Lutfi continued in his text message, and revealed all: "It's fake. Completely fake. Just wrapped her music video. Going home to sleep."
Britney Spears: Not pregnant via J.R. Rotem after all.
Well, that officially settles that. If one can't trust a text message straight from Sam Lutfi, what can one believe in this crazy world?
We were skeptical about the alleged pregnancy from the start, but what's crazy is how certain the magazine that reported this celebrity rumor was in doing so.
On its new cover (see below), In Touch featured a Britney Spears photo under the headline: "Yes, She's Pregnant!" The story quoted J.R. Rotem saying, "It's true."
Also today, we ran a separate story about Britney Spears' kinky sex lair. Amazing how quickly certain celebrity gossip pales in comparison to pregnancy rumors.
