Britney Spears sues Us Weekly

December 20th, 2005 // 21 Comments

britney-sex-tape.jpgBritney Spears has filed a $20 million libel lawsuit against Us Weekly over a story that she and Kevin Federline had made a sex tape and were worried about its release.

The lawsuit, filed Monday, seeks $10 million in libel damages and $10 million for misappropriating the 24-year-old pop singer’s name and image to promote sales. It also seeks unspecified punitive damages. “We have a very credible source and we stand by our story,” Us Weekly spokesman Alex Dudley said Tuesday in a statement.

I could understand this if Us Weekly reported that Britney and Kevin keep enslaved midgets in their basement, but being worried about a sex tape doesn’t really call for a lawsuit. Are Britney and Kevin actually worried that the idea of a sex tape will ruin their public image? That’s like Hitler leaving a large tip at Denny’s because he doesn’t want people to think he’s a bad guy. Too little too late, man.

    she just needs the money

  2. T-Bag

    Come on suzy put the glue down !

    i agree, she needs the cash – maybe this is her wierd way of auctioning the tape to the highest bidder. do we hear $10 million . . .

    This happened so long ago and shes filing the suit now.

    I don’t know what kind of image she is trying to protect, we all know she is a moronic slut with terrible choice in men. She ruined her own image, US weekly had nothing to do with it.

  5. Have any of you ever seen “Britney and Kevin:Chaotic” or whatever the hell that show was called? OF COURSE there’s a sex tape!

    Sounds like someone needs some cash.

    Oh yeah, this whole time I’ve been laughing about her going poor and losing all her lifelihood possessions that I forgot about the ole, “I’m suing your ass for uh…stuff,” trick. She could win, she could lose, but she’ll still have a brain dead husband and a could be brain dead baby.

    The last time I wanted to sue over one of my sex tapes – it was because they wanted to release it as a comedy. Come to think of it – that’s probably the lovely couple’s main concern.
    But I’m a bit worried that these two haven’t been able to dissappear in peace to an upscale mobile home park to enjoy the Thursday night bingos. Time to move on US Weekly ! Might as well sue the bastards for ‘lack of news sense’!

    She is just pissed because it is a nasty, gross tape that will be the final nail on her teen pop star coffin.

    oh god. that’s fucking ridiculous. she just needs the money because spenderline wasted it all away.

    any bets on how long before this tape hits the internet? maybe then the families of the people who choke to death from simultaneously laughing and vomiting while watching the tape can sue britney and kevin back to the trailer park.

    I would SO pay to see that tape. I just KNOW they call each other parental nicknames in the throes of Louisiana monkey sex.

    “Oh Big Daddy…just like that…Oh yeah…”

    “I know how you like it, Mama…” ::straightens cap:::

  13. HOMELESS(TM)

    its ok.

    im sure the release of the video will make more than 20 million anyway.

  14. “Britney Spears has filed a $20 million libel lawsuit against us weekly” Jesus F-ing Christ! I thought people were after me during my presidency but you, The Superficial, are screwed. Call me…got reinstated by the bar last summer.

    she’s gotta come up with Federjerk’s 125 million somehow, Yo.

    I don’t know who is the bigger idiot Britney or Kevin?? That poor child is going to need a whole lot of therapy!!

    here’s my theory of what happened. Kevin floats a story about a missing sex tape with the missus. US Weekly bites and prints it. Britney then “finds” the videotape under her bed where Kevin had hidden it. Kev sees an opportunity to get 20 mil which Brit agrees that he can keep for himself so that he will stop touching her money. so she sues US Weekly. the real agenda is to get Kevin to stop spending her money.

    I don’t know why they are so desperate for money. They both know that K-Fed’s rap album is coming out soon, that alone will bring in enough money to double their living expenses. Just wait, people, K-Fed is the new Eminem. Mark my words…

  19. drowningfool

    …oh yeah…and about the baby (I almost forgot about it, as I’m sure Britney has), if Darwin was correct in his theory of natural selection an eagle will drop down from the sky, pick it up and eat it, in a futile and desperate attempt by nature to eliminate these dangerous and deadly genes from the gene pool.

    Hey, that special Federline logo on his Ferrari’s brakes can’t have been cheap. Girl needs to do something to keep her man in weed and tacky cars.
