With Britney Spears' Circus tour set to kick off tomorrow night, Kevin Federline was seen walking out of the star's hotel in New Orleans, Louisiana.

K-Fed oh-so-generously agreed to travel to Britney's tour dates so that their two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, could be with her as well.

Essentially, he'll be receiving a not-so-shabby sum of $5,000 a week for doing nothing - more than enough to keep the ol' waistline expanding.

God Bless America and the recession-proof Bank of Britney Spears.

Poor R. Kelly.

The guy just wants to move on with life.

If only that pesky child porno case would go away.

The filthy human being, whose real name is Robert Sylvester Kelly, is being sued by a private investigator who claims the star stiffed him on a $300,000 bill.

According to a lawsuit filed last week in Missouri federal court, Charles Freeman claims he was hired in the midst of Kelly's recent trial to "obtain and/or recover certain tapes that were said to incriminate" R. Kelly.

Kelly was pretty miraculously found not guilty on all counts, despite being charged with 21 counts of having sexual intercourse with a minor (Lisa Van Allen).

Freeman said he did the job (which was somehow legal, apparently, if he's admitting to it) but never got paid. He's suing for damages, interest and costs.

Becoming a mom has allowed Katie Holmes to flex muscles she wasn't even aware she had. The star opens up to Glamour in its new issue about love and parenting, her life with Tom Cruise, her career, dealing with celebrity gossip and more.

Check out some Katie Holmes pics and quotes below ...

Katie Homles Glamour Cover
[on celeb gossip]: "We were changing diapers one time and [Tom] said, 'I don't want you to get upset,' And I said, 'Well, I am upset.' So we approached it together. But I definitely felt like - as a woman, as the mother of Suri - I want to handle this! My mom is very strong, and if anyone ever said anything about any of us, she would be, 'Excuse me?' That's my family!'" | permalink
[on marrying Tom Cruise]: "When Top Gun came out my sisters were like, 'Oh, my God, Top Gun! Tom Cruise!' And I very confidently said, 'I'm going to marry him one day.' It wasn't like, How do I get Tom Cruise? It was just: I think I'm going to marry him. Why not? He'll like me. I'm fun." | permalink
[on her career]: "I want to do it all. Bad girl, good girl, complicated girl. Aren't we all complicated?" | permalink
[on being a mom]: "Becoming a mom has been the most amazing experience - in an instant you become strong. You have to be a little bit wiser; it's the most important job you have in the world." | permalink
[on married life]: "As a woman, you make the transition from being singe to [being] a partner. I have a teammate." | permalink
[on her day to day life]: "We like to be together, so we use the house for our [business] meetings. [We] play Yahtzee, board games, Scrabble. We grill; have pool parties. We play "The Three Little Pigs" and Suri is the Big Bad Wolf. [Tom] reads story books to Suri and we all laugh. When a good song comes on, he'll break into dance. We have the best time. | permalink

He's fallen in love with two beautiful girls. Unfortunately, this isn't Big Love. There can be only one rose and one engagement ring distributed tonight in New Zealand.

The Bachelor star Jason Mesnick finally makes his choice on the season finale, and he's got quite the decision: Does he go with Molly Malaney or Melissa Rycroft?

Making the decision even tougher? A "surprise" visit by DeAnna Pappas ...

A couple of points before we throw it over to you for comments:

  • This is the cheesiest preview ever, even by Bachelor standards. Jason did a good job inserting "Molly" and "Melissa" into the generic Bachelor finale script.
  • Are we really supposed to believe Jason had no idea DeAnna was in New Zealand? Who takes a 67-hour flight to give someone they dumped a little advice?

What do you think is DeAnna's role in tonight's finale? Are The Bachelor spoilers going around legit? Who do you want to win? Vote and leave comments below!

Jason Mesnick should be with ...

With Chris Brown and Rihanna back together, will the singer be charged with beating and/or threatening to kill her - which he was arrested for February 8?

The case will be turned over to the Los Angeles County D.A. next week, and a decision will be made soon after on whether to file criminal charges against Brown.

The two likely charges - making criminal threats and domestic violence.

As for the most serious possible criminal threats charge, we think it's now less likely the D.A. will file because of Rihanna's sudden change of heart.

First of all, the main reason Chris Brown was arrested for this is because he allegedly told Rihanna something to the effect of, "I'm going to kill you."

This is obviously a terrible thing to say, but lots of people say it in the heat of the moment, so it's not the easiest thing to charge someone with.

Compounding the issue is that Rihanna may very well testify that she never believed he meant this threat, and the case looks thin to say the least.

Hollering at the Honies

Chris Brown chats with some jet skiing chicks in Miami over the weekend. No word on what was said, or whether he beat the pair senseless afterward.

The domestic violence charge is another matter entirely.

When a jury sees the pictures of a clearly battered Rihanna, it's probably more powerful than any testimony she'd give. Even if she were to take the stand and say she started the fight or somehow deserved it, it would be a tough sell.

Given the picture, it's going to be tough not to prosecute Brown.

Amazingly, more than half the D.A.'s domestic violence cases involve women who have recanted their stories or gotten back together with the alleged abuser.

Crazy. The impending decision clearly isn't weighing on Brown's conscience, as he spent the weekend jet skiing at Diddy's pad and being a tool in Miami.

Alex Rodriguez is rolling in his grave.

Okay, so the Yankees slugger isn't dead. But he might wish he were after seeing these photos of his one-time girlfriend parading Jesus Luz all over New York.

Considering he basically divorced Cynthia Rodriguez to be with Madonna, this slap in the face has to hurt as bad as the leaked results of his steroids test.

But back to Madonna.

She and Jesus Luz, the 22-year-old model from Brazil that she met on the set of the racy W photo shoot and allegedly began banging shortly thereafter, went out for a romantic meal on a snowy Sunday night in New York City...

Jesus Luz, Madonna Photo

Madonna got out of her car first then waited for Jesus Luz to get out, and they then walked into the restaurant together, in full view of the paparazzi.

After a two months-long vacation in St. Lucia, Amy Winehouse arrived at London's Gatwick Airport on Sunday, with her sights set on a new home.

According to a source, she'll be living the suburban life - miles away from the gritty area of Camden where her apartment was ransacked in January.

Winehouse was trying to sneak past waiting celebrity gossip photographers by using a back exit where her car was waiting, but when a snapper caught up with her she was more than happy to stop and pose and have a short chat.

She's Baaaack!

The Grammy Award-wining star said that she couldn't believe that she was back in London and that she didn't realize how much she really missed it.

Of course, her return to the UK got off to a predictably shaky start after she got into an altercation on the flight home from St. Lucia. Amy Winehouse allegedly lashed out at a fellow airline passenger after "he gave her strange looks."

Sounds about right.

We're glad to have her back, although her new neighbors in the North London suburb she plans to reside in may not share that sentiment. "House prices have fallen enough without Amy Winehouse taking up residence," one told the Sun.

You know, we wondered if she'd actually have the opposite effect, but with Blake Fielder-Civil just released from prison, there's no way that's the case.

His pro baseball career never exactly panned out.

Seriously, dude sucked, check out his weak stats.

His turn on reality TV ended up being short-lived.

Seriously, Lauren Conrad dumped him pretty quick.

He then dated Amanda Bynes, but she nixed that.

Her reason? He was exploiting her celeb status.

What's Doug Reinhardt to do after such a run of bad luck?

We believe the answer is quite obvious: Get together with the one person in Hollywood who never minds being exploited (sometimes on film), and with whom it's far easier to hit a home run than it is against even a minor league pitcher ...

Paris Hilton partied it up with her rumored boyfriend du jour as they leave Teddy’s in L.A. Saturday night. She looks happy being used, but she's used to that, and seriously, who can blame her. Doug Reinhardt's charm is quite breathtaking.

His words, on his official site, not ours.

The downside of hooking up with Paris Hilton, of course, is that there's nowhere to go from there. You're damaged goods, Doug. Think about it. How much ass has Stavros Niarchos gotten since they broke up? We rest our case.

From The Hills to the New York Times bestseller list?

Maybe that's pushing it, but the MTV reality star's name is officially gracing the cover of her first novel, L.A. Candy, which hits stores June 16.

Lauren Conrad Hairstyle

Conrad's publishing debut is a fictional story about a 19-year-old girl named Jane Roberts who has not-so-subtle similarities to the author.

"Roberts can't wait to start living it up," the official book synopsis says. "She may be in L.A. for an internship, but Jane plans to play as hard as she works and has enlisted her BFF Scarlett to join in the fun."

Wonder when Scarlett stabs Jane in the back repeatedly, gets a loser boyfriend and has kinds of plastic surgery. Yes, Heidi Montag, we went there.

Conrad's novel is said to be the first in a three-book series about the protagonist, so there's room for all kinds of creative liberties in the new volumes.

In the novel, the two are approached by a producer who wants them to be on a reality version of Sex and the City. It's like art imitating life imitating art!

The book is about "what it's like to come of age in Hollywood while starring in a reality TV show, written by a girl, Lauren Conrad, who has experienced it all firsthand," the synopsis of L.A. Candy says, and it's hard to dispute that.

We just hope that whomever LC got to ghostwrite this work of fiction took the time to say "like" and "seriously" every other word.

When Britney Spears takes the stage at the New Orleans Arena on Tuesday, March 3 - the opening night of her Circus tour - the stakes will never be higher.

Singles such as the title track, "Womanizer" and "If U Seek Amy" are burning up the radio, but if Spears can't hack it live, she'll never be truly back on top.

After two years of personal drama, this concert tour will either make or break the professional comeback Larry Rudolph has been orchestrating since last fall.

According to sources, Britney Spears, 27, who left Friday for Louisiana, has been hard at work preparing for the show, which will feature her signature sexy dance moves, a stage filled with three circus rings, and magic tricks.

"She's pretty determined," a friend told celeb news mag People. "She missed singing and performing and the freedom of that. It gives her an escape and it's what she loves to do, so she's definitely thankful to be doing that again."

Britney Spears Then and Now

Although the star seemed to be back to her old form when she sang "Womanizer" on Good Morning America in December, the concert will be her biggest since her epic meltdown at the 2007 MTV Video Music Awards (above, right).

As for Spears' last tour, waaaaaaay back in 2004, that was canceled after the singer injured her knee during a video shoot. She spent her newfound free time with then-boyfriend Kevin Federline; they were engaged that summer.

Bottom line? Girl is way past her musical prime (see above, left). Can she recapture the live magic? And will fans still turn out in droves to support her?

So far, the buzz for the upcoming 31-city outing is strong. Tickets have sold well, with some shows already sold out even in these tough economic times.

Of course, some interest may stem from the sideshow that is her personal life.

Wednesday, her father and conservator, Jamie Spears, was granted an extension on a restraining order against his daughter's ex-manager Sam Lutfi.
