Britney is her own best publicist
By Courtney Hazlett
Britney Spears is responsible for the publication of the "personal" photos of her and her kids that have found their way into the pages of OK! Magazine for two weeks running. The photos, which are beautiful, were rumored to have been sold to the mag by photographer Dani Brubaker, but a source familiar with Spears' negotiations says that is not true.
"That's absolutely made up, there is no lawsuit," said the source. "In fact, Britney loves all of this. Look how gorgeous she looks."
The source went on to say that this is at least one case where Spears should be given credit for playing the public well. "She's a savvy fox. The week she loses her kids, these pictures that were taken months ago suddenly show up. It's brilliant. She knew what was going to happen (with that custody hearing) and how she'd fight back."
One person who is furious over the photos is Sam Lutfi, the most recent castoff from Spears' island. "He's been trying to sell pictures of Britney he took himself," said one source who has fielded calls from Lutfi. "He's furious that he's been cut out of her life, which is why he calls and passes along 'information' every chance he gets."
Most recently, Lutfi approached news outlets saying that Spears was not pregnant, despite photos of Spears perusing pregnancy tests at a Studio City, Calif., Rite Aid. "He doesn't know if she's pregnant. He hasn't talked to her in ages. The only person who would know is Britney."
And the plot thickens.....
