Move over, Shar Jackson. You’re not the only one with close ties to Lynne Spears who’s reportedly taking legal action over something nonsensical today.
As you can see, the billboards in question use the image of an insane and bald Britney with the headlines: Certifiable, Shock Therapy, and Total Nut Jobs.
Apparently, Britney Spears is still a little sensitive about her recent spiral into career oblivion and her current mental condition.
A letter addressed to a lawyer for Clear Channel Communications, filed by Britney Spears’ lawyer, Lynda Goldman, says it’s “outrageous” that the company didn’t take the billboards down weeks ago – when she says they promised they would.
Goldman says Britney Spears‘ “likeness has a multi-million-dollar value for authorized commercial exploitations” and she would be entitled to “very substantial damages.”
Not sure how a freshly-shorn, umbrella-attacking, angry Britney Spears (hours away from rehab at that) is of million-dollar value to anyone. But hey.
In any case, Britney’s legal team is demanding photo evidence that the billboards are removed and threatening Clear Channel to ignore their demands “at its peril.”
Ooooooh. In their defense, at least they stopped short of asserting that Jayden James Federline would suffer great emotional trauma due to the billboards.
In other Britney Spears news, the paparazzi that tails the nipple slip diva around to her tanning appointments, manicures, dance classes, clubbing and… whatever the hell else she does with her life … caused a huge traffic jam in Malibu.
One photographer, riding in front of the bleach blonde “singer,” stopped his car in the middle of the street and jumped out to take pictures of Britney Spears, causing a big backup behind.
Now that’s taking the hunt for celebrity gossip too far.
