Britney Spears has told the Federline that she is not going through with their divorce. Yes, that is her in the above photo. Poor thing.
Word is that Brit has been telling her friends for weeks that filing for divorce was a mistake. "She fully admitted she still loves Kevin and she wants her family back. Her ego wouldn't let her back down from starting the divorce action for a long time," the leak said.
Kevin told Brit that he was not going to get back with her. "Brit then
became incensed and told him she would drag out their divorce in the courts for
months, 'until he saw things her way and came back to her.'"
The National Enquirer reports that Kevin recently called Brit about keeping their sons, so he could go to Amsterdam for his BFF's birthday and she refused.
"Britney doesn't want Kevin going out, period, much less to another country where she can't hear and see what is happening," says the source.
"She's jealous that Kevin has a life without her and gets paid to go to clubs and events. Britney reminds Kevin constantly that he is getting paid because of her- and that he's nothing without her."

Tom Sizemore was sentenced yesterday to 16 months in prison for violating his probation in a 04' crystal meth possession case. Sizemore "abused the privilege of probation" and "needs to be in a lockdown setting," Judge Cynthia Rayvis said.
Sizemore will serve his sentence at Donovan Correctional Facility near San Diego, California, which has a drug rehab facility.
Last week, he cried and pleaded with the judge to give him another chance to overcome his drug problems. Sizemore is due back in court on Tuesday, when a judge will determine how much credit will be applied to his sentence for time already served.

Timberlake has been accused of spitting on his fans outside of his hotel window in Sweden.
Justin was in "foul mood" when a group of teenagers started to bother him at the city's Hard Rock Café. The teens allegedly followed him back to his hotel, so he came up with a genius idea- he started to "pelt" them with a variety of bizarre objects.
A witness told The Mirror, "First a load of ping-pong balls came raining down. Then came a plastic bottle of water. After that, there was strawberries and other fruit. And then came the phlegm." Eww, ew and ew.
An employee at the hotel said, "These are the worst scenes we have ever seen here and we have celebrities staying here all the time. It was manic, and I've never seen so many TV crew and photographers outside."

John Travolta is in the record books after becoming the first non-test pilot to fly the new Airbus A380 SuperJumbo. Travolta is a qualified pilot with more than 5,000 flight hours under his belt.
At the Paris Air Show, Travolta said, "I was the first non-test pilot to fly the A380. It was a moment of history. It was fantastic. It's very easy to fly. It was a hand stick operation. It is very forgiving. If you make a mistake, it handles it for you thanks to the latest technical evolutions, whereas I am used to the older Boeing that is a much more hands-on type of flying."
Travolta said he hoped to find time to fly Boeing's F/A-18 fighter jet while at the Paris show. "I've been invited to fly an F18 on Saturday. I'm hoping I'll be able to do that but I don't know if time permits."
When asked if he would buy any planes at the show, Travolta answered, "Oh, no, no, no." You know that really means, "Yes, yes, yesss!"

In a phone call with E! yesterday, Hilton said, "I'm much more grateful for everything that I have, even just to have a pillow at night or food. In a way, I'm really glad this happened, because it changed my life forever."
"I just realize that the media used me to make fun of and be mean about it. Frankly, I'm sick of it. I want to use my fame in a good way. I feel like I can't wait to start a new chapter of my life. It feels really great even though I really don't like it here."
She just realized the media uses her to make fun?? NO!! What in God's name burst that bubble? Amazing.

Brit sat in the VIP area sipping sweet tea while a personal shopper brought over multiple items. Brit instructed her to pull out "the kind of stuff Katie Holmes wears."
Some items she purchased: Pink Chanel Croc Bag $10,950....a Manolo croc shoe $3,100....Armani wool jacket $1,865...a Valentino silk shirt $1,080. Back up. Did she steal a receipt from Katie's trash?
A Brit snitch said, "Britney wants to go from trashy to classy. It's going to be an uphill battle. She's still a country girl at heart." Yeehaw.

The Sun claims to have a copy of Joss Stone's 11-page list of demands for her performance at Knowsley Hall Music Festival this weekend.
She requested Miracle Whip, 12 de-thorned roses and said that she would only eat her salad dressing from china plates arranged on a table cloth. She mentions, "Feel free to serve regional specialties and be creative."
Maybe she's just a proud pigeon over performing with Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey at the festival. Maybe she thinks she will be a princess. She has been talking with sexy Prince William recently- about her gig at the upcoming concert he's planning in memory of Princess Diana. The Daily Mirror says the two "are close."
Stone's rep is already denying the noise. "They talked about what songs she is going to sing at the concert and that gets translated into a story about how William has been bombarding her with calls." Princess Joss? Eh.

Richie Sambora surprised Heather with a call before he entered rehab. Despite their past, she offered her support.
"Heather was shocked by the call," a friend of Heather's told Star. "She'd never heard Richie so out of sorts. He apologized to Heather for 'the mess' he had made of their marriage."
"He said he's had a lot of time to think recently and he regretted hurting her and splitting up their family when their daughter, Ava, needed both her parents."
Word is Heather knew Richie had been having problems. She told him, "You need to confront your issues. She urged him to seek professional treatment – not just for his own sake but for Ava's."
Sambora's problem started to get really bad after he and Heather separated. "I remember a Bon Jovi concert in Florida in February 2006 where Richie was drinking so heavily, we all began to worry that he could have a severe problem," says the friend. "Everyone knew he was devastated. Heather was the love of his life."
The gossip said, "Richie's finally getting the help he needs, and Heather will be there every step of the way."

Say that three times...Britney is NOT happy about the billboards still appearing in Florida that feature her crazy bald head promoting a morning show for WFLZ Radio.
Apparently Clear Channel was warned to take the ads down, but didn't act fast enough. Spears attorney even accuses Clear Channel of "lying" about removing the ads.
TheSmokingGun.com has obtained a letter to Clear Channel, which owns WFLZ, that reads: "It was outrageous in the extreme that Clear Channel created and displayed the billboards in the first place. That Clear Channel then had the unabashed temerity to lie about their removal shocks the conscience."
The billboards used her bald-headed image with the captions 'Certifiable', 'Shock Therapy' and 'Total Nut Jobs' to promote the morning program.
An attorney for Spears says that Clear Channel is exposing itself to "increased liability by lying about the removal of the ads" and now they want a complete inventory of all billboards containing Spears' photo.

Tom Cruise is all ready to "perform a Scientology wedding for a friend" this week. Cruise has made it to the highest level of Scientology. Rumor is he will conduct the wedding of James Packer and Erica Baxter on Wednesday evening.
The wealthy Australian heir - who is marrying model-turned-singer Erica Baxter - is one of the Church of Scientology's richest benefactors after he inherited a $6.5 billion fortune when his father, Kerry Packer, died last year.
Media and gaming mogul Mr. Packer and Miss Baxter have booked out the French Riviera's most exclusive hotel, the Hotel du Cap Eden Roc, overlooking the sea at Cap d'Antibes, south-west of Nice, for the festivities.
