Free Britney

Free Britney

Teaming up with Hilton Hater to bring you the latest celebrity news, Hollywood rumors and gossip since 6/6/06.


With Britney Spears nude, crazy and on the prowl (for what, who the hell knows), spies and interns for The Hollywood Gossip report that road signs like this one have begun popping up around Hollywood and greater Los Angeles ...

Britney, Sean and Jayden

Okay, not really.

But maybe area highway departments should consider it. Between Britney Spears' craziness and the pack of paparazzi following her and the chaos stemming from that circus, SoCal motorists and pedestrians alike should be on notice.

Lauren Conrad is going to have a new roommate, and it's very a familiar face for fans of Laguna Beach and The Hills.

No, Heidi Montag has not come crawling back. Lauren Bosworth ("Lo" to real fans) is reuniting with her high school BFF!

The Hills' co-star and Lauren's current roommate, Audrina Patridge, recently said in an interview that Lauren "Lo" Bosworth will be moving in with the two of them when they settle into Lauren's new house.

"New year, new house, new jobs, new boys, new everything," Audrina Patridge told Us Weekly about the new episodes of The Hills. "It's gonna be fun!"

Lauren Conrad and Lauren Bosworth have always been close friends. Now LC and Lo will be roommates, according to fellow roomie Audrina Patridge!

Here's some background on Lo, from what we know (as avid Laguna Beach / Hills watchers) and from what our low-paid, hard-working interns dug up ...

  • Lo has one brother and one sister.
  • During the first season of Laguna Beach, Lo was a senior.
  • She made periodic appearances on The Hills in its third season.
  • In high school, she had more strict parents and was relatively more conservative than some of her fellow cast members.
  • She attended the University of California, Santa Barbara, and a member of Kappa Kappa Gamma. However, Lauren transferred to UCLA for her junior year. She is, or was, majoring in communications and art history.
  • Lauren Bosworth has stated that she does not have any online profile of any sort and that any baring her name are all fake.
  • [Which, come to think of it, means the girl we added as a friend three weeks ago and have been corresponding with is totally full of $--t!]

Has Amy Winehouse gone to rehab. Yes. Yes. Yes.

Did we report this same story earlier this week, only to recant it a day later? Yes, yes and yes! But her label has actually confirmed it this time.

Smokin' a Cigarette

Winehouse entered a drug rehabilitation facility today, after a series of meltdowns and bizarre behavior rivaled only by Britney Spears.

"She decided to enter the facility today after talks with her record label, management, family and doctors," Universal Music Group said.

"[Amy Winehouse] has come to understand that she requires specialist treatment to continue her ongoing recovery from drug addiction."

They finally got the "Rehab" singer to go there.

It surely wasn't the first time, but earlier this week, a shocking video surfaced of the singer apparently smoking crack out of a glass pipe.

Police are still deciding whether any charges should be brought against Amy Winehouse over the video. Heck, maybe that was her intention.

Her husband of about a year, Blake Fielder-Civil, remains locked up and held without bail on charges of assault and witness tampering.



Yes, we know Sean Preston and Jayden James are 2 and 1. Read on.

Britney Spears is certainly no stranger to ... stranger and stranger behavior.

But a recent Us Weekly account of her January 7 antics is odd ... even for her.

Reportedly, the scantily clad (no pants?) star showed up at a Beverly Hills elementary school, saying she was there to pick up someone else's kids.

Spears parked outside the school about 3 p.m. and spent 10 minutes chain-smoking and talking to herself, waiting for classes to let out.

"She was rambling and confused," says a witness, who approached Spears to ask if she was OK. "She said, ‘I'm here to pick up my kids.' But then she said, ‘They aren't my kids; I have a new attorney, and I came to pick them up for her.'"

Far from sane, Britney Spears dropped by a local school.

Perplexed (and with good reason), the witness says, "All I could think was, 'Who in their right mind would let her pick up their kids?'"

As children began to leave for the day, Britney caused a commotion â€" "It became the talk of the school. Some of the kids were freaked out," says a school source. She was directed to a more secure entrance around back.

But before getting back into her car and driving off (thankfully, without any kids), Britney chatted up the female witness: "She said, ‘You're so nice. You should give me your number. I don't have many friends.'"

But what about Alli Sims? Chad Hardcastle? Sam Lutfi? Oh, right, all her "friends" are just sponging off her. Otherwise, they might get her help.

Sam Lutfi, the freeloader sponge hanger-on friend who has been all over around Britney Spears for more than a year now, is going to tell all. Under oath.

Well, sort of. He's about to have his deposition taken in the singer's ongoing custody battle with Kevin Federline, TMZ reports this morning.

Osama Lutfi was scheduled to arrive at the offices of K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, earlier today. This should be very interesting.

Sam Lutfi (right), is Britney's right-hand man, for better or worse.

Lutfi has tried to dodge this at every turn, even running from Aaron Cohen, who served him with a subpoena, earlier this year. That marked one of first times this celebrity gossip site had heard of good ol' Sam. Ah, memories.

One of the lines of questioning Sam Lutfi will likely face in the deposition involves the popular celebrity photo agency X17. Kaplan wants to know if Britney made a deal with X17 to "catch" her living life - and if Lutfi is the bagman.

If Britney is making money from a photo agency - a theory that fueled even further by her recent "romance" with Adnan Ghalib - that wouldn't sit well with Commissioner Scott Gordon. Stay tuned ...

Detroit Mayor Kwame Kilpatrick and his chief of staff, Christine Beatty, lied about their relationship last summer during a police whistle-blower trial that has cost the cash-strapped city more than $9 million, USA Today reports.

The false testimony potentially exposes them to perjury charges. Barack Obama and his shady business associate have nothing on these two.

Kwame Kilpatrick and Christine Beatty denied in August testimony that they had a sexual relationship. But a series of text messages shows they engaged in romantic banter as well as planned and recounted sexual liaisons.

The text messages are also at odds with the pair's testimony that they did not fire Deputy Police Chief Gary Brown, who later sued, in 2003. Texts show Christine Beatty recalling the "decision we made to fire Gary Brown."

The Kilpatrick-Christine Beatty relationship and Gary Brown's dismissal are central to the whistle-blower suit filed by Brown and Harold Nelthrope.

The two former police officers accuse Kwame Kilpatrick of retaliating against them because of their roles in an internal investigation of the mayor's security team â€" a probe that potentially could have exposed his affair with Beatty.

The newspaper examined nearly 14,000 text messages on Christine Beatty's city-issued phone. The exchanges cover two months each in 2002-2003.

The text messages cover a range of issues, from the daily minutiae of city business to political gossip to the latest doings on American Idol.

Kilpatrick, who is married, and Beatty, both 37, exchanged personal messages almost daily, including romantic notes like this one from October 3, 2002 ...

Kilpatrick: "I'm madly in love with you."
Beatty: "I hope you feel that way for a long time. In case you haven't noticed, I am madly in love with you, too!"

Other texts contain sexual content, like this April 8, 2003, exchange:

Beatty: "And, did you miss me, sexually?"
Kilpatrick: "Hell yeah! You couldn't tell. I want some more."

Fox News' John Gibson recently commented on Heath Ledger's death - making remarks so tasteless and inappropriate, they must be heard to be believed.

On his radio show, which opened with funeral music, John Gibson called Heath Ledger a "weirdo" with a "serious drug problem."

Putting aside the fact that the exact cause of Ledger's death has still not been determined, that's pretty bad. But it got much, much worse.

Making fun of the famous line from Brokeback Mountain - the 2005 film that earned Heath an Oscar nomination for Best Actor - Gibson played the clip in which Jake Gyllenhaal's character says, "I wish I knew how to quit you."

Gibson then interjects: "Well, he found out how to quit you." What a d!ck. Click here to listen to this and the rest of Gibson's remarks.

John Gibson's ridicule of Heath Ledger defies comprehension.

Laughing, Gibson then played another clip from Brokeback Mountain in which Heath Ledger's character, Ennis, says "We're dead," followed by Gibson's own, mocking "We're dead" before playing the clip again.

This makes Rush Limbaugh seem downright lovable.

So, starring in a movie in which you portray a gay man - Heath Ledger himself was straight, not that it would make Gibson any less repulsive - makes it okay for commentators to mock your death? Absolutely incredible.

The world is mourning the loss of a great talent. Ledger's family and all of humanity deserve better than this. Get this a$$hole off the air forever.



Remember how Casey Aldridge got Jamie Lynn Spears pregnant?

That story dominated celebrity news for a week or two, yet has been all but forgotten about amid Britney Spears' downward spiral.

But Star Magazine is still all over it, claiming Jamie Lynn plans to hand her baby over to her mother, Lynne Spears, as soon as she gives birth.

According to the celebrity gossip publication, Jamie Lynn Spears wants to "concentrate on her career." This assumes she has some sort of career.

A source supposedly close to the Spears family says:

"After several weeks of personal soul searching and talks and discussions with her mum Jamie Lynn reluctantly agreed that giving up the baby is the right thing to do. Lynne Spears says Jamie doesn't understand the lifelong consequences of having a baby. She still wants her daughter to be able to be a teenager, go to parties, hang out with friends and have her own career. So she'll take the front seat of caring for the baby and take the pressure off her daughter."

Because we all know Lynne Spears does a hell of a good job.

Jamie Lynn Spears' manager reportedly advised her to have the baby, take photos with it, sell the pics, then hand the thing over to Lynne.

The source went on to say, "Lynne is convinced that having a baby on her hip will not help Jamie Lynn's future in the business and she's expecting her daughter to pick up where she left off as soon as the baby is born."

Lynne is apparently excited about raising another baby. We're sure she is. Those paychecks from Britney may dry up if she gets committed.



Just when it seemed like Jessica Simpson and Tony Romo might go all the way (so to speak), rumors are surfacing that they're on the rocks.

According to OK! Magazine, insiders say a hunting trip the two enjoyed last weekend was a last-ditch effort to save their relationship.

OK! also says Tony Romo has already tried to dump Jessica Simpson.

After his playoff loss to the Giants, the Dallas Cowboys quarterback called Jessica to try to break things off, but she talked him out of it.

"He said he thought it would be better if they went back to being friends," a pal of Jessica's said. "'Just friends' isn't in Jessica's vocabulary, and she is not a victim. She knows how bad this will look in the media."

According to the pal, Jessica refused to give up, and so Tony invited her on what he thought would be the worst date of her life: a hunting trip!

"It's Tony's way of punishing Jess," laughs her friend. "Jessica Simpson hunting â€" and without her entourage? Forget it!"

Is Tony Romo looking to stop huddling up with Jessica Simpson?

According to the Simpson insider, "Tony Romo has finally started to realize how high-maintenance Jessica is," says her friend. "We're talking diva status. She comes with an entourage, and that includes her dad, Joe Simpson."

Joe Simpson, as we know, also doubles as Jessica's pimp.

Only time will tell if these two will make it, but at least Tony's teammate Terrell Owens seems to be making progress in the romance department.
