Britney Spears attacked a photographer with an umbrella because
she was 'preparing' for a film. The 'Toxic' singer - who also
attacked a car outside estranged husband Kevin Federline's house
after discovering he wanted temporary custody of their two sons in
February - has now claimed she lost her temper because she "got
carried away" with her research for a movie role.
In a handwritten letter sent to gossip website X17online,
Britney appears to take a swipe at Kevin, saying her film character
was married to a man that didn't "play his part". The letter said:
"Dear X17. I want to apologize for the past incident with the
umbrella. I was preparing a character for a possible movie role
where the husband doesn't play his part so they swap places.
"Unfortunately, I didn't get the part. I'm sorry I got all carried
away with my role! Britney."
Britney, 25, checked herself out of Los Angeles' Promises rehab
centre when she heard Kevin was seeking an emergency court hearing
and dashed to see her lawyer. The star then drove to Kevin's home
to visit her two sons, Sean Preston and Jayden James, but after
being refused entry she flew into a rage and attacked the
photographer with an umbrella. Meanwhile, Britney is reportedly set
to release a track from her as-yet unreleased new album this
weekend. The singer is said to be preparing to re-launch her
flailing pop career on Saturday.
