Britney Spears' father-conservator, Jamie Spears, has reportedly fired three of the pop star's dancers from her Circus tour after they failed drug tests.

Old Man Spears is taking his role as Britney's legal, fiscal and personal steward very seriously, making sure Brit isn't surrounded by negative influences.

Typically, this involves battling Adnan Ghalib and Sam Lutfi in court, but his reach extends to the backup dancers who support Britney's mega-concerts, too.

Of course, this not to say the tour is totally scandal-free.

Sunday, Britney Spears experienced a wardrobe malfunction in Tampa, Fla., which no one was aware of until she proclaimed "my pu$$y is hanging out" into a live mic.

The Britney Spears concert tour / Cinemax movie rolls into NYC.

Fortunately, no p---y proclamations were made last night at her show last night on Long Island, where the big story was a surprise Madonna appearance!

Shortly before Spears took the stage at the Nassau Coliseum, Madonna came in with manager Guy Oseary (and several bodyguards, but no Jesus Luz).

"She purposely walked up the main stairs in front of everybody so they would all notice her," an insider said, adding that screaming fans swarmed her. "Celebrities definitely don't need to go up the main stairs to get to their suites."

Yesterday's report in Star magazine turned out to be correct. Bristol Palin and Levi Johnston have called off their engagement, Johnston confirmed to the AP.

Johnston, 19, said the couple decided to split a while ago.

He did not offer more details.

Bristol Palin - the 18-year-old daughter of Alaska governor (and former Republican vice presidential nominee) Sarah Palin - and Johnston welcomed their son, Tripp Easton Mitchell Johnston, on December 27. The couple planned to wed this year.

Admitting that getting knocked up as a teen wasn't ideal, she told Fox News last month that "I hope people learn from my story. It's so much easier if you're married, have a house and career. It's not a situation you want to strive for."

In the same interview, Bristol Palin - currently a student at Wasilla High School - touted Levi Johnston as a "hands-on dad." Yesterday, though, when rumors of their split surfaced, she supposedly described him as "white trash."

Speaking of W.T., his mom, Sherry Johnston, was arrested in December and charged with six felony counts of misconduct involving a controlled substance. She was allegedly caught dealing OxyContin, a.k.a. hillbilly heroin.

The cast, crew and producers of MTV's The Hills are involved in some serious drama - perhaps more so than anything we've seen on the "reality" show itself.

The peeps behind The Hills are in a legal war over the live season finale, as the guy who owns the Beverly Hills mansion where MTV filmed the "Live from the Hills Season Finale" claims the place turned into a demilitarized zone.

Lauren Conrad and New Boyfriend?

When he rented the place out for the show in 2008, he was promised it would be returned in "the same condition." What he got back, he says, was a disaster area.

According to a lawsuit filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Igor Greenberg claims MTV "caused extensive damage to the property in at least the amount of $158,250.07."

He wants the network to fork over the cash, pronto.

What? The girls from The Hills? Creating drama? What's next ...

We recognize this article is sort of meaningless, but think about it, that's a serious amount of damage! What happened? Did someone turn a drunk Jason Wahler loose against Spencer Pratt while Heidi Montag and LC had a cat fight for the ages?

All we can hope is that this drama was captured and will air on the fifth season premiere March 30. Then the circle of reality TV trashiness would be complete.

Wow. The OK! Magazine staff must have been collectively overstimulated when it learned that A-list celebrity babies Shiloh and Suri (last names not required) were getting together for a play date. Almost too much excitement to contain.

"Katie loves entertaining and spoke to Angelina about having an at-home tea party with cupcakes for the girls," a friend of Katie Holmes tells OK!.

Kim and Mason

"Because of security reasons, Katie can't have just any child over to her home. But with celebrity kids like Shiloh and Zahara, there's no problem."

Katie also wanted to introduce Suri Cruise to other children her age. While the toddler has adopted siblings Connor Cruise, 14, and Isabella Cruise, 16, to play with, the two teenagers are much older, and "Suri's a very shy young lady."

OM-F'N-G: Suri Cruise and Shiloh Nouvel Jolie-Pitt are totally BFFs. This is quite possibly the greatest development in the history of celebrity gossip tabloids.

Plans for their "mini-meeting" began on January 11 in L.A., when Katie and her husband, Tom Cruise, chatted with Angelina and her partner, Brad Pitt, at a private Golden Globes afterparty thrown by CAA at the Sunset Tower Hotel.

"Since the film, their careers and social circles have become so different, they rarely see each other," explains the source. "But they acted like old friends, talking about their children. They agreed to get their little girls together."

"Katie told Angelina she just knew Suri and Shiloh would get along well," says the insider, "and Suri is already getting into the idea."

The burning question: Which celebrity tot is the cutest?

Anne Heche is joining the ranks of Pete Wentz and Ashlee Simpson.

Well, not really. There's only one Anne Heche, and this latest odd celebrity baby name can't compare to Bronx Mowgli, though we're not sure anything can.

The actress has given birth to a son, her second, who joins his older brother Homer with a name also borrowed from ancient Greece: Atlas Heche Tupper.

"They are ecstatic," the rep says of the new parents.

Heche and the boy's father, actor James Tupper, met on the set of ABC's Men in Trees and began dating in 2007. They announced they were expecting in December.

Heche's other son, Homer, 7, is from her marriage to deadbeat Coley Laffoon, which officially ended Wednesday. Great week for Anne Heche all around!

The teenage pregnancy and love affair that rocked last year's presidential race is over, at least according to unreliable celebrity news magazine Star.

That publication claims Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's daughter, Bristol Palin, 18, has officially ditched her white trash baby daddy, Levi Johnston, 19.

Levi's sister, Mercede Johnston - who is also referred to as Mercedes Johnston by some publications, and was the girl mistaken for Bristol in that classic batch of girl-on-girl and gun pics surfacing last summer - is Star's supposed source.

She says Levi's life in in Wasilla, Alaska, is far from pretty.

"Bristol's just crazy. That's the nicest way I can put it," Mercede said.

Bristol reportedly broke up with Levi Johnston more than a month ago, and is not attending school or letting her baby daddy see their young son.

According to Mercedes, Bristol Palin has almost completely cut Levi Johnston out of her life - and that of their two-month-old son, Tripp. No word on how Tripp's uncle Trig feels about all of this. Or about being named Trig.

"Levi tries to visit Tripp every single day, but Bristol makes it nearly impossible," his sister allegedly said. "She tells him he can't take the baby to our house because she doesn't want him around 'white trash'! She treats him so badly!"

Worse yet, Mercede says, the former V.P. candidate backs Bristol's treatment of Levi. "I used to love Sarah," Mercede says. "But I've lost respect for her."

This implies she had some to begin with, which may be the most surprising thing in this piece. We just hope Bristol's teenage fornicating days aren't over.

Do you buy this story? Will Bristol be knocked up again by 2010? Will she and Levi get married? Have you ever hunted wolves from a helicopter?

Former pop star Mandy Moore and current rocker Ryan Adams have wed, reps for both stars confirm. They tied the knot Tuesday in Savannah, Georgia.

The secret wedding should come as no surprise.

After confirming her engagement to Adams in February, Mandy Moore said she wanted the wedding to her beau to be "less ... of a big deal."

"Hopefully, it can happen and slip by unnoticed by everybody," said the singer, 24, who has dated Adams, 34, off-and-on since March 2008.

"I guess we have to be sort of sneaky about it."

Mandy Moore Engaged!

She added that she has never been "that kind of girl" who obsesses over her wedding day and added that she hadn't even thought about a dress.

"I kind of feel like, because I've been able to get married in a few films, I kind of got the whole giant wedding fuss out of my system," Moore said.

Mandy Moore calls Adams "a good egg. I'm in awe of him - his brain, his passion. He's truly one of a kind." Congratulations to the happy couple ...

Sources connected with Rihanna and Chris Brown say there is friction in the two camps - and while no one has been pummeled unconscious (yet), peeps are at each other's throats over whether Rihanna and Brown should be seen in public together.

Rihanna's PR people are said to be on high alert to make sure no one gets a photo of the alleged battery victim and the alleged maniac felon together.

They believe at this point it would be "extremely damaging" to her career.

This may explain why video surfaced earlier today on TMZ of Rihanna leaving a club around 4:00 a.m. this morning, with Chris Brown nowhere in sight.

On the flip side, with Brown angling for a plea deal to let him off the hook, his people want nothing more than to show that he and Rihanna are tight.

Obviously, letting celeb gossip sites run some pics would do that.

And then there's this: A number of people who interact with Rihanna both personally and professionally want her to cut Brown out of her life for good.

They resent him and are outraged at what he did. Not hard to believe!

For their part, the newly-reconciled Brown and Rihanna are said to be working on a duet - which, ironically, is about overcoming challenges as a couple.

Brown's manager, Tina Davis, who reportedly sent a three-age "booty call text message" that triggered the February 8 incident, is nowhere to be found.

Gisele Bundchen, a.k.a. Mrs. Tom Brady, is doing what she does best - posing for gorgeous photos (albeit a little weird at times) in fashion mag Harper's Bazaar.

The supermodel is a stepmother already - to Brady's son John Edward Thomas with Bridget Moynhahan - but Gisele says she's eager for more kids of her own.

"I want to have a big family," Bundchen tells Harper's Bazaar for its April issue, in an interview that took place before getting married to Tom Brady.

"It's all good in that part of life. It's part of life I'm learning about every day. I've been challenged a lot by it, but it's the most rewarding part."

"He is so kind," she says. "He loves blueberries, and every now and then my dog, Vida, tries to get some food from him. He is so nice that he will actually give her the blueberries first. He is so cute and has such a sweet demeanor."

Presumably she means John, not Tom. Of the bigger Brady, she adds:

"Tom is a good guy. He has a pure heart. He's very naive, almost like a child. That is my favorite quality about him. One thing that I thought was so amazing when I met him is he is innocent. He sees the world with [rose] colored glasses."

He also sees Gisele Bundchen nude all the time now. Jerk. Click to enlarge more (clothed) photos of the world's richest model in Harper's Bazaar ...

Katie Holmes is no stranger to changing up her hair and fashion, but for over a year now she's been consistent in at least one thing: making shorter hair her signature look, whether it's a Posh Spice-esque bob or a pixie cut.

For what reason, we can't even guess.

We were pretty pleased to see that this trend may be ending, though, as Holmes hit the Valkyrie red carpet in Tokyo this week sporting lush, full locks!

Personally, we love the change back. It reminds us of the Dawson's Creek days before she turned into a robot. But which Katie hairstyle do you prefer?
