We will give Star Magazine this much: It's been a slow couple of months for those of us who thrive on Britney Spears news and gossip.

That being said, this celebrity news magazine and others like it are stooping to new lows and going to new extremes to fill a sudden Spears void.

They claim Britney Spears and Kevin Federline had a "secret meeting" during Easter weekend. At this time, they decided to run away Maui.

K-Fed, who was in Las Vegas hosting his own birthday party that weekend while Britney was in L.A., has already denied this via his rep.

It gets better. Backing up the made-up story is a photo of Britney and Kevin on a beach, enjoying a relaxing getaway ... on their honeymoon in 2004.

What's more amazing? This isn't even the worst Britney Spears celebrity gossip reporting job of the week! That honor belongs to the great OK! Magazine, which features a Britney Spears photo from 2003 to bolster its cover story.

  • Secret Weekend
  • Losing Weight

SLOW NEWS WEEK: With little juicy gossip out there, these celebrity news sources decided to bust out old Britney Spears pics and make some $h!t up. Standard.

Proving that they're really grasping at straws, a Star "source" also claims Brit bought K-Fed a $138,000 diamond watch during their fake tropical jaunt.

Yeah, right. We had already figured out that this whole Spederline reuniting story was about as real as Heidi Montag's rack, but come on now, Star.

At least if you had written that Britney bought the FedEx man a $25 Casio, we might have believed it and kept reading ... at least for a minute or two.

Stalking Britney Spears is a career for many peeps.

Seriously, the 26-year-old wreck is stalked by so many members celebrity news media that there are reports of gang members infiltrating the paparazzi.

Britney and Boy

To combat this, according to Access Hollywood, a new law may being proposed to protect the troubled singer and other celebrities from the paparazzi.

In light of the media storm that surrounds Spears, councilman Dennis Zine is trying to get a law passed to get these blood-sucking leeches to back off.

"It cost $25,000 to take an ambulance with Britney Spears to the hospital," Zine said. "Taxpayers paid for that. It is not going to be called the ‘Britney Spears Law.' I am not going to give her credit for that because it is not about Britney Spears. It's about the paparazzi violating everybody else's rights, freedoms, and privileges."

No word on whether Adnan Ghalib would be somehow exempt.

Possibly with no clue where she was, and definitely with no bra, Britney Spears did some shopping with her mother, Lynne Spears, yesterday.

Zine continued: "The paparazzi have developed a lawless society where the rules don't apply â€" on the wrong side of the street, jumping out of cars at the red lights, swarming the car, you don't do that. If we think back a few years, Princess Diana was driving down the road, paparazzi chasing. A crash occurred, Princess Diana died. I don't want to see that happen here in Los Angeles."

Even as people who work in the industry, we admit that it's gotten a little nuts. A mad dash to get the perfect Britney Spears nude photo or crotch shot or video of the singer talking in a British accent is not helping her get any better, guys!

Britney Spears' recently rekindled interest in dancing isn't entirely based on boredom or her love of little kids, the New York Post reports.

The buzz at the Grammy Awards (which she skipped) was that Spears' newfound focus on her dancing is preparation for an upcoming world tour.

Britney "will be leaving the country in the next few weeks," a source told the Post. "She'll train in privacy for a month, then go on a global tour."

Would you pay to go see this in concert? Not us. Well, maybe we would ... if it were some kind of comedy tour in which her various personalities did standup.

In other Britney Spears news (and we use that term loosely), paparazzi who follow Britney Spears have been infiltrated by gang members - specifically, notorious L.A. groups the Crips and the Bloods, the New York Daily News reports.

Celebrity photo agency execs claim "rival agencies are arming thugs with cameras and sending them out to do battle with dozens of paparazzi" who hound the train wreck in search of the best Britney Spears photos.

Veteran paparazzo Nick Stern, who quit Splash News this month, said: "I've heard stories of fights, car tires being slashed, cars being blocked in."

All agency heads interviewed said they do not hire street toughs
.

"They may dress like gang members with large pants and tattoos, but to say they're gang members right now? Well, real gang members are not into Britney Spears," said Frank Navarre, a Frenchman who owns celebrity photo mainstay X17.

"[Spears] attracts huge numbers of photographers, and whoever muscles their way to the front gets the best picture. They're not AP photographers in flak jackets, but that's not to say they're thugs, either," said Chris Doherty, owner of INF.

Why the heck would real gang members would possibly throw themselves into the celeb news fray? How about cash. Spears' own boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, works for Finalpixx, and has been reportedly made $200,000 a year covering Spears.

Things may be safer now that the singer is under psychiatric care and Jamie Spears has his daughter's vehicles garaged. But the troubled Britney continues to be the top story in the celebrity gossip world, day after day after day.

"I cannot say she's boring, no," Navarre said. "She's been pretty good at renewing herself. She doesn't accept any authority, or any boundaries. To some people, that looks crazy. She's stronger than you think."

This is bad celebrity gossip.

There's no other way to put this: A story by The News of the World (U.K.) gives the entire Hollywood gossip industry a bad name.

But it's a hilarious read.

When Britney went bonkers last Thursday night and early Friday morning, theories were flying far and wide as to what went down at her place.

Locking herself in a room with a craying Jayden James? Having Alli Sims break down the door and get her out. Who the heck knows what really happened!? We don't. Neither does the News of the World, and yet they write a remarkably detailed "account" of what supposedly transpired. Excerpts below:

  • Britney took nearly 100 pills in 36 hours leading up to her meltdown. She took 2 bottles of Nyquil, 20 Clenbuterols, 18 herbal uppers, 18 Piriton antihistamines, 12 Vicodins, 10 sleeping pills, 8 antacid pills, 1 bottle of Pepto Bismol, 10 Zantacs, 6 Ritalins and of 2 full bottles of Oxycontin.
  • Kevin Federline was afraid Britney would shoot both their sons dead - with a gun he gave her - a Beretta 92FS Brit keeps by her bed. Britney begged Kevin over the phone to let her keep the boys and offered him $100 million.
  • When one of Kevin's bodyguards tried to take the boys from her, she bit him in the leg. Britney called Jamie Lynn Spears and told her she wasn't going to be the only Spears on the cover of a magazine next week. Britney then proceeded to bash her head into the wall in a fit of rage.

You can follow this link continue reading the full, unadulterated bull$h!t story. We have to give them credit for creativity, at least. Maybe these News of the World guys should be scabs with the Hollywood writers still on strike.
