A photographer who took family portraits of Britney Spears and her sons has sold the pics to OK! magazine, despite previously insisting she would not.
The shots taken by Dani Brubaker in early November are featured in the issue released today. In the accompanying article, Brubaker says that she found Spears to be “very attentive… She was very loving. She told me she loved her children and that they are her life.”
The photos were meant to be private, though Spears did not get Brubaker to sign a contract to keep them that way. On the Britney Spears fansite BreatheHeavy.com, Brubaker previously claimed that she would not compromise her morality by selling the pictures.
“The images from the shoots were never available for purchase, although I have been offered upwards of half a million dollars,” Brubaker wrote. “Recent postings indicate that I profited from these images. Which is not true. My integrity isn’t for sale.”
It is unknown how much Brubaker sold her integrity for.
Britney Spears’ visitation rights with her two young children were suspended today.
According to TMZ, “Brit did not provide the drug testing people with contact information so they could reach her to facilitate the random tests, and that is what triggered Commish Gordon’s action.”
Spears’ custody battle with ex-hubby Kevin Federline has been one unsuccessful fight after the other. Last week she called an emergency hearing to request over-night privileges but didn’t even show up to the courthouse.
She has repeatedly failed to comply with the judge’s orders and overall disrespected him. A reporter from Us Weekly overheard her trashing the judge while shopping in Neiman Marcus on October 11. According to the reporter, Brit called the judge “mean” and “an old fart.”
“He told me I was being catty with him, but he was being catty with me and paid me no respect at all,” Spears ranted. “His job is to sit there and tell people what to do, and that’s just so sad, because he gets off on it.”
TMZ is reporting that Britney Spears has better things to do than attend an emergency hearing that she herself requested.
The reason for the hearing was to ask the courts to give her overnight rights with her two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James. She lost custody last week to her ex-husband, Kevin Federline, and currently has only supervised visitation rights.
Though lawyers urged her to attend the 8 a.m. hearing to prove she cares about her children, TMZ reports that Spears stayed in her hotel room in Marina Del Ray this morning.
Federline’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan, was not pleased by Spears’ request for a hearing. “The fact that a party, one week after a full court hearing, attempts to change the orders of the court, in the absence of an emergency or without any new facts, suggests a continued lack of respect and understanding for what an order of the court actually means,” he told TMZ.
