A few weeks after her infamous porn shop thievery, the incomparable Britney Spears continued her five finger discount shopping Friday.
As we discussed over the weekend, the alleged singer made a pit stop at a Sherman Oaks, Calif., Chevron gas station, where she bogarted a lighter.
"I stole something," Britney Spears sarcastically told photographers as she walked out of the station with a $1.39 lighter. "Ohhhh, I'm bad!"
Manager Sham Bahia laughed off the incident.
"If I see her, I'm going to ask for the money," he told Us Weekly. "She's a thief. I don't know if she really wanted the lighter or just wanted to make a story."
The goods and services Britney Spears wants, Britney Spears takes.
Alas, Britney Spears was left off the hook when a someone returned to the scene of the crime Saturday and paid the man for it. No, it wasn't Osama Lutfi tapping into his vast coffers, but rather someone from a celebrity photo agency.
"[The manager] didn't want me to pay for it at first," said photographer Shane Partridge. "I told him it was no bother. I just felt like I should, you know?"
We know. Perhaps, in the future, maybe Britney should be a little more grateful to the celebrity news photographers who frequently come to her rescue.
