Sony to Pay Louis Vuitton for Past Britney, Da Brat Videos

The following italicized article is from

If we ever trademark a special pattern made from our initials, we would hire the Louis Vuitton legal team to help protect it in a heartbeat because they are on their game. The luxury company won another victory yesterday in its never-ending trademark-protection crusade, this time against Sony BMG. In a legal dispute just slightly more glamorous than LVMH's recent ones with eBay, Sony BMG has agreed to pay Louis Vuitton 100,000 euros, or $155,830. Louis Vuitton got upset with the music giant because they used its Toile Monogram and Multicolore trademarks in music videos and on CDs by Britney Spears, Ruben Studdard, and Da Brat. For example, in her "Do Somethin'" video, Britney appears driving through the clouds with her sexy girl entourage* in a pink hummer with a pink dashboard embossed with Louis Vuitton's signature pattern (which flashes on the screen for literally less than a second). "We don't make dashboards," a Vuitton spokeswoman told the Daily News. Though you can still watch the "Do Somethin' " video on YouTube (thank God), Sony BMG has agreed to cease distribution of American Idol winner Studdard's album The Return and pay Louis Vuitton an extra, undisclosed amount of cash in relation to that case.

What makes the LVMH legal team seem even more spectacular is they've already won $240,000 in the Spears and Da Brat cases over the last five years. In fact, according to our calculations, with the total winnings minus the Studdard bonus, the company can buy itself, why, 130 airport rolling bags!

Britney's Dance Partner Revealed!

Is Britney Spears falling for her bodyguard?

Not exactly. The two were spotted dancing and clowning around in Cabo this week, but it's purely platonic, according to the guy's brother.

"It’s strictly work," Kobi Adato tells E! News of his brother, Tsour Lee Adato, a former Israeli army soldier.

"He was her bodyguard, but now he’s her photographer."

Kobi would not reveal why his brother is now serving as Spears' designated photographer.

Even so, Tsour might make a good match for Britney. According to his MySpace, he is currently single, 31, 5’8" with an athletic build, a Taurus, Jewish and is a college graduate.

He also says on the page: "like to make people Laugh & enjoy when i see them Happy...I always tell people that even when things are difficult they should always see the light and positive in life."

Tsour also lists his occupation as a music engineer.

Sounds like a match made in studio heaven.

Rep: Britney Is Not Dating Bodyguard

The following italicized article is from

Almost a year to the date that news broke suggesting Britney Spears was dating a member of her security team, the same rumor cropped up again pitting the pop star in a romantic relationship with an employee.

Several gossip sites suggested Spears has been dating a member of her latest security force, but the rumors are absolutely not correct, her manager, Larry Rudolph, told Access Hollywood’s Billy Bush.

“There is no truth to this at all,” Rudolph said.

The man Spears has been spotted with is not Spears’ security, but a staff photographer.

And, Rudolph noted, Spears is “100% single.”

In July 2007, Spears was spotted out on the town with former bodyguard Daimon Shippen.
Sources denied the two were in a relationship at the time.

Lady Ga Ga On Britney

Interviewer: You surely earned even more gay fans with the recent announcement that you wrote a track for Britney’s upcoming album. Was that a dream come true?

Lady Ga Ga: Yeah. I was working with Rodney Jerkins on Pussycat Dolls, and we wrote this song - I almost slipped and told you the name. Thank God I caught myself; I respect her a lot, so I was to give her control over that. When we were done with the song, I was like, "Oh, I want to sing it," but my album was already closed. It never even crossed my mind that she was doing a new record. Then Rodney played it for [Britney's manager] Larry Rudolph, who was in the studio. Rodney called me later and was like, "Britney's people are freaking out about this song." Ultimately, she makes the decisions, so when I found out that she loved it and was going to record it, it was amazing. I actually heard it yesterday with her on it for the first time, and I really had chills.

Brit Pays Big for Sanity

The following italicized article is from

The last year has seen many changes in the life of Britney Spears.

Most of the focus centered on the custody battle over her two beautiful boys with ex Kevin Federline and the long standing conservatorship over her person and estate that, thanks to her father Jamie Spears, has slowly helped the singer,26, regain and stabilize her mental health.

While most will agree Brit's conservatorship is necessary to keeping her healthy, it has not been without a heavy price — literally.

In the last five months, Britney has paid $724,109 in attorneys fees to Andrew Wallet, Sam Ingham, Luce Law Firm and Stacy Phillips and to her father, who to date has made aproximately $37,500 acting as his daughter's conservator.

And that's just her conservatorship case. Brit's also had to shell out money for her separate custody case (Remember, Brit paid both K-Fed's lawyers and her own).

A source close to the case estimates that Britney has paid Mark Vincent Kaplan roughly $745,000 as well as over $1 million to a rotating door of attorneys who acted as her counsel.

When you add all that money together, the total number equals out to just under $2,500,000 that Britney has paid to attorneys in the last year.
