Free Britney

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

Lynne Spears, Britney SpearsFor the first time since their reported rift over Britney Spears' stint in rehab, her mother, Lynne Spears, has broken her silence.

Guess it's a day for stories about bad parents.

We already talked about Paris Hilton's visiting her in the can. Now Lynne Spears is ready to talk about some of the difficulties her famous daughter has faced in the past year.

"You go into a time in your life with the world watching and you are just trying to figure yourself out," Lynne Spears told Us Weekly.

"It's sad that the whole world had to watch Britney make mistakes that all of us have made at one time or another."

We're not sure all of us have provided paparazzi with repeated crotch shots and nipple slips. Nor has anyone on our staff ever slept with J.R. Rotem. Anyway.

Earlier this year, the pop star found herself in a downward spiral ending a wild public meltdown that featured video footage of her shaving her head in a California salon and lashing out against a photographer's car, attacking with an umbrella.

She checked into rehab shortly thereafter.

It turns out, to Lynne Spears' dismay, that Britney Spears' famous blond locks weren't the only thing the mother of two cut off at that time.

"She decided that she had to cut out everyone who was using her, and that included her parents," says a source close to Britney Spears.

The estrangement was especially hard on the pop star's mother.

"Lynne was like Britney's best friend, so when Britney started partying and her mom tried to control her, she got mad," a family source says.

Happily, the two reconciled June 10, speaking for the first time in months. Quietly, Jayden James' grandma and mama are taking the first steps back toward a peaceful relationship.

Despite the hardship, Lynne says she and her daughter are coping.

"Britney Jean Spears is the sweetest and the most sensitive and loving of all my children," the mother of three - Brit has a brother, Brian, and a sister, Jamie Lynn Spears - tells Us Weekly.

"She's just figuring things out."

Wonder if she's figured out that Shar Jackson is pregnant again!

Kevin Federline may be sick - and that could last for about nine months when he reads this - but someone's gotta break the news.

Shar Jackson is pregnant.

That's the report coming straight out of the New York Post, TMZ.com and numerous other reputable celebrity gossip sources. Oxymoronic as that sounds... would it shock you? The guy's boys can frickin' swim.

Report has it that Kevin Federline has planted his seen for the fifth time, knocking up the mother of his first two children.

He ditched the D-list actress for Britney Spears a few years back, but as soon as his divorce from the pop star became official, FedEx reportedly embarked on an on-again, off-again, and (for Shar lately) very much on-again romance with the shining Shar.

And the rekindled passion seems to have produced yet another baby between them. So much for those rumors of an impending Spears-Federline reconciliation.

The Post's Cindy Adams claims Shar Jackson is already "into her seventh week, and at the instant I write this, he doesn't know." She cites Shar in Star, saying that she's hoping "this brings them back together as a family."

Gag. We'll have more on this as it develops. We're can't wait to learn if a fifth K-Spawn will join Kori, Kaleb, Sean Preston and Jayden James.

The son of Anne Heche will live with his father, Coley Laffoon, in Los Angeles while the actress works in Canada, a judge ruled in the strange actress' bitter divorce case.

Under the temporary arrangement, Anne Heche, who had asked to have 5-year-old Homer live with her and attend school in Vancouver, will have alternate weekend visitation rights while the ABC show shoots.

When she returns to Los Angeles after filming ends, she and her estranged husband, Coley Laffoon, will have joint custody pending the outcome of their divorce trial.

Men in Trees, which stars Heche and her current boyfriend, James Tupper, begins filming in Canada in mid-July and will wrap up around next March.

The custody arrangement was approved by the Superior Court judge in a closed-door hearing Monday, according to lawyers in the case.

"Coley Laffoon is pleased with the result of the hearing," his attorney, Jon Summers, tells People, adding that Laffoon was awarded an undisclosed amount of child and spousal support.

"Homer is going to remain in Los Angeles and attend school here."

Laffoon, 33, filed for divorce in February, triggering a brutal custody dispute. He has questioned Heche's sanity and parenting skills, accusing the actress of resorting to lies to win custody of and destroy his relationship with their son.

Someone's gotta get Coley and Alec Baldwin together for some drinks.

The former videographer, who says he was making just $6,000 a year when he quit his job to take care of Homer, sought primary custody and at least $33,000 a month in support, according to court papers.

Heche, who has defended her parenting, has claimed he was actually seeking $45,000 a month and that his cravings for strippers, poker and masturbating to online porn kept him from properly raising Homer.

Well, those are some concerns. Talk about a rock and a hard place! And to think we thought Jayden James Federline had some screwed up parents!

Why run a story about a non-controversial star like Claire Danes and her boyfriend enjoying a new, fun hobby ?

Because not every piece of celebrity gossip involves British babes in Nuts magazine or descriptions of the daily Britney Spears nipple slip photos.

Deal with it.

In any case, Danes and Hugh Dancy seem to be getting along swimmingly. You could say they're diving into the world of romance... yet still getting their feet wet.

If you're wondering when we're going to run out of these bad puns, don't hold your breath. It will happen around the time Lindsay Lohan grows up.

After attending a spate of press events in the last few days, the largely Hollywood gossip-free couple are planning a scuba-diving vacation.

"I've never scuba-dived, but hopefully, I'm going to. The day after tomorrow," Dancy told People Monday at a Cinema Society screening of their film Evening. "I'm going on a holiday."

Asked if Claire Danes was going with him on the vacation, Dancy said: "Yes."

But the actor, who just wrapped up a stint in the Tony award-winning play Journey's End, was coy about their exact destination.

When asked if the getaway was to an island, Dancy would only say, "It's not a landlocked country."

He added: "I've never done scuba, but I'm not very good at those holidays where you do absolutely nothing, so I figure I'd learn to swim underwater."

And Claire Danes supports her beau's adventurous side. Backstage at Sunday's Tony Awards in the gift lounge, she requested an Invicta diving watch for Dancy.

Dancy and Danes began dating while filming Evening in Newport, R.I.

"We hadn't met before," Dancy said Monday. "It's an amazing place."

Danes, a Gwyneth Paltrow look-alike, recently told People that she and Dancy "just happened upon each other because we were friends." Dancy said of the relationship:

"I'm having a great time."

Aww. You see? Not every celebrity has a contrived, fake relationship fueled by gossip and staged photos. Talking to you, Heidi Montag.

The incomparable Britney Spears was hanging out in Hollywood Monday night.

Literally!

Peepin' It

Dressed in what appears to be a satin bed sheet of some kind and very little else, the princess must have known we were getting a bit bored with our recent articles about her.

After all, she was nice enough to provide us with a yet another nice nipple slip (see below), then later, as an encore, she flashed her rear end while getting into her car!

The mother of Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline had no bra on, obviously, but at least put on panties. Which for most is a given, but with Britney, you never know!

The latest boob and ass flashing came as Britney exited Joseph's in Hollywood last night. Deliberately or not, we can't say - but that once-fine ass was dangled tantalizingly in front of a horde photographers as she hopped into her car. A class act as always!

According to TMZ, the crowd of paparazzi could even be heard groaning as her ample back side made a very special appearance. Now that is (a) bad ass!

At least her awful hair extensions were held in place by a paisley scarf, adding a Gypsy flavor to an already whore-able ensemble. Top it off with trampy hoop earrings and a gold purse, and this MILF is ready to get crunked... Y'all!

The abject suffering depicted in one Paris Hilton pussy picture after another is a frequent topic of discussion among the staff in The Hollywood Gossip newsroom.

Fortunately for Holly Madison and animal lovers across America and the world, not all critters are subjected to such extreme acts of unforgivable torture.

Hayden Hearts Barack

That said, we are happy to present a cute celebrity photo of a furry friend and a star who our staff members are much bigger fans of than the ho-tel heiress.

Below, Hayden Panettiere plays hero to a small pal from the Humane Society as they head down the "cat"-walk at Animal Fair's 8th Annual Paws for Style event Monday.

Yeah. We can't tell for sure if that's a cat or dog. But we can say with certainty that there's at least one sexy kitten in this pic! Purr!

The Heroes star is the magazine's cover girl for their travel issue. She's also the hero of Stephen Colletti's love life... even if he can't legally hit that. Yet. Just wait 'til August.

Eva Herzigova and her Italian boyfriend Gregorio Marsiaj have welcomed their first child, a healthy baby boy.

We hope they listen to Jaime Lee Curtis and avoid the parental mistakes Dina Lohan and others have made.

A spokeswoman from Storm Models confirms the baby was born in Paris on June 1. We know his name is George Marsiaj Herzig - but we don't know if this will be another case of Jayden James Federline and no photos will be available for months.

"The whole family [is] well, Eva is delighted, and they will all be leaving on a holiday together shortly," a Herzigova spokerperson said.

The Czech-born supermodel, 34, shot to fame in the "Hello Boys" Wonderbra ad campaign that literally stopped traffic back in 1994. One could surmise that Jennifer Love Hewitt almost owes her career to the sort of worldwide breast appreciation Herzigova helped usher in.

Last month, Eva attended the Cannes Film Festival where she revealed the sex of her baby to People magazine and said: "I am so excited. I cannot wait for motherhood."

Before meeting Marsiaj, a Turin businessman whom she has dated for several years, Herzigova was married to Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres for two years.

Note to readers: Don't assume Victoria Beckham is any sort of unfaithful skank just because of her penchant for ridiculous outfits that showcase her huge boobs.

Much as we enjoy ripping on her, she's a happily married mother of three (and friend of Paul Sculfor) who's got her priorities right. Family before career, and loyalty to her husband above all else! Nothing but David Beckham nude for this British babe!

Posh Rocks London

You can imagine, then, Posh's reaction to Alex Rodriguez scandal.

Cheating on pretty wife Cynthia Rodriguez with a stripper? A not very hot, somewhat manly stripper to boot? Yeah. Stray-Rod is up to no good and practically begging for the high heat. Apparently hitting many home runs on the field wasn't enough for him.

Better watch out, Alex, or you're gonna pay the price - Posh Spice chin music!

It's gonna leave a welt, that's for sure. A woman who's never afraid to throw inside, you better believe Victoria Beckham won't hesitate to throw at other Hollywood screwups too. This appearance at last night's Dodgers game is just the beginning.

There's surely a high fastball earmarked for you too, Joslyn Noel Morse. Better grow eyes in the back of your head, you bleach blonde floozy!

Oh, and Coley Laffoon? You're officially on Becks' bean ball list. You too, Kevin Federline, if you don't treat Britney Spears right - whether you too get back together or not!

It seems the messy divorce between Anne Heche and Coleman "Coley" Laffoon is driving her to seek the company of women.

Granted, this is Anne Heche. But it always says a lot about the quality of a man when his lover and former spouse abandons the entire gender, seeking shelter in the arms of her own sex.

Not that we have any problems with girl-on-girl action here at The Gossip.

But still, way to blow it for the team, Coley Laffoon, you ass clown.

In any case, here's how this rumor got started. On Saturday, Anne Heche was seen "getting very cozy" with club promoter Voula Duval at the Gramercy Park Hotel's Rose Bar in New York City, the New York Post reports.

Then, Sunday night, Heche was spotted flirting with Six Degrees star Shiri Appleby, 28, at a Tony Awards after-party at Bryant Park Hotel.

Sadly, Shiri Appleby's Six Degrees co-star, Bridget Moynahan, wasn't there, though she is single now! Call her up, Anne! You gotta try to move in on that!

A rep for Heche, who dated Ellen DeGeneres before she married the buffoon Laffoon, did not return phone calls seeking comment on her supposedly changing jerseys again.

Very interesting, these lesbian rumors. Never mind the fact that Heche is reportedly dating James Tupper, her co-star on Men In Trees, and by all accounts a heterosexual male. Wonder what his take on this celebrity gossip is.

In any case, the gist of the divorce battle between Heche and Laffoon, which involves a dispute over custody over their five-year-old son, Homer:

  • Coley Lafoon says Anne Heche is insane.
  • Anne Heche says Coley Laffoon is an absentee parent who is addicted to poker, strippers, masturbating and downloading sex photos online.

Yeah. Suffice it to say, these two are making the divorce proceedings of Marilyn Manson and former spouse Dita Von Teese seem downright civil.

Britney Spears and Kevin Federline back together?

Say it ain't so! Or say it is. We're not sure. K-Fed may have ass clown-like qualities, but he's several steps up from that petulant loser Howie Day. Just saying.

Brit Brit and J

In any case, take this rumor with a boulder of salt. But Britney Spears told her close pals on her recent Mexico getaway that, after weeks of hush-hush meetings and tearful late-night discussions, she is set to reunite with her FedEx-husband.

"When she was on vacation she was in the best mood she's been in for ages," says an insider.

"She confessed it was because she and Kevin Federline are slowly moving towards getting back together."

After months of misery and confusion, the singer has supposedly welcomed Kevin back into her life - along with her mom, Lynne Spears.

Pals were stunned when Britney Spears told them, as it seemed reconciliation was the last thing either of them wanted after their divorce was finalized.

But time has given the couple the opportunity to remember the good times they once shared. Now, every time Kevin drops off their sons Sean Preston, 21 months, and Jayden James, nine months, he stays for hours.

Sometimes even overnight, sources say. Ooh. Stop the presses, it must be official!

What do you think, readers? Do you believe this rumor of a Spederline reloaded? Or is this just a bunch of worthless celebrity gossip?
