Before Britney Spears went on for her VMA “show stealing performance”, Britney had a fight with celebrity hairstylist Ken Paves. People reports in their latest issue:

Weeks before the awards show, “Britney had requested his two female assistants since she prefers women around her,” and was disappointed when Paves himself arrived, says a Spears source. The stylist soon left, taking his hair with him.

“He bailed,” says the source. Says Paves’s rep: “Ken made the professional decision not to do her hair for the VMAs.”

That wasn’t Spears’s only problem – there was also a wardrobe flap. An MTV rep says costumers picked out a form-flattering corset for her to wear, but Spears chose a bikini instead.
