Britney Spears ends legal battle with ex-manager - report

  Britney Spears ends legal battle with ex-manager - report Britney Spears and former manager Sam Lutfi have reportedly ended their seven-year legal battle. Lutfi filed a defamation case against Britney and the Spears family in 2009, accusing them of publicly slandering him by claiming he had some responsibility for the singer's downfall that saw her hospitalised in 2008. However, Lutfi insisted Britney's alleged drug abuse was the real reason for her very public fall from grace, and even went as far as claiming he had tried to stop the singer relying on drugs. After a judge dismissed Lutfi's case in 2012, he appealed on the grounds that he was still owed unpaid earnings, and a trial was due to begin in Los Angeles next week (beg12Sep16). However, TMZ.com reports that Britney and Lutfi settled their case last week (ends04Sep16). An insider told the outlet that Britney paid out "in the low six figures" to her ex-manager. While the exact amount wasn't confirmed, it is believed to have been less than the estimated $500,000 (£372,825) it would have cost Britney in legal fees to defend the case. Britney and Lutfi first met in 2007, when the singer's life was in turmoil. As well as undergoing a divorce from then-husband Kevin Federline and a custody battle with him over their sons Sean Preston and Jayden James, Britney was also estranged from her parents, and it's at this time she was allegedly abusing drugs.

Britney Spears has played down rumours she might duet with ex-boyfriend Justin Timberlake.

The pair became one of the celebrity world's biggest couples when they began dating in 1999, after meeting on television series The Mickey Mouse Club. However, their romance didn't last, and the couple broke fans' hearts when they split in 2002.

Although both have moved on since then - Justin is now married to Jessica Biel, with whom he has son Silas - Britney still has fond memories of her NSYNC beau, so much so that she recently cited him as one of her dream collaborators during a question-and-answer session with Most Requested Live with Romeo.

Justin then revealed he was also amenable to the idea, but Gimme More star Britney has now dashed fans' hopes of a collaboration, admitting the idea is "just talk".

"One of my friends asked me if I would do a song with him and I said 'yes', so they took it as I really wanted to do it - and that would be fun - but yeah, I think that’s (just) a lot of talk…" Britney said during an interview in British television show This Morning on Monday (03Oct16).

"Actually it’s fine, I have three shows a week, I work every other six weeks, so it’s kind of cool... it’s not like its tremendous on my body - and my body is actually kind of used to it after three years of doing this - it kind of knows," she said.

Britney Spears: 'I liked my thirties way more than my twenties, my twenties were horrible' .
Britney Spears has opened about her 'horrible' twenties in an interview on Lorraine Kelly's morning TV show. In an interview with Dan Wooton, the Glory singer alluded to her infamous public meltdown as she revealed she is in 'good place' in her life today. The former Disney star was in a relationship with Justin Timberlake, but after their split she married childhood friend Jason Alexander in 2004 in Las Vegas. 55 hours later the marriage was annulled. In the same year, she tied the knot to backing dancer Kevin Federline, before filing for divorce from him in 2006. Aged 26, Spears suffered a public breakdown and was famously photographed shaving her head and later attacking a paparazzi's car with an umbrella. Britney entered rehab and subsequently lost custody of her children to Kevin, and was placed in temporary guardianship of her father. Now aged 34, the mother-of two admitted it was a terrible period in her life. "I liked my thirties way more than my twenties, my twenties were horrible," she said. The Baby One More Time singer said she is embracing who she is in her thirties. "My teens were fun but I like my thirties, thirties is great. You know who you really are. I'm in a really good place right now, loving and learning myself. Every day I'm learning who I am, it's awakening, it's cool. It's okay to be single, it totally is," she added.
