Britney Spears Tour Will Be Canceled If Kevin Can't Be Bribed


That Jamie Spears guy is a pretty sneaky guy. First he reads all of Britney Spears' text messages and sees who she is calling and figures out that Britney is still calling Adnan and helping him make a living by telling him in advance where she is going to be. That way Adnan makes some money by informing the paps. Of course Jamie didn't like that because he probably didn't think of it first and so he got a restraining order against Adnan and for good measure Sam Lufti, because, well, why not. It's Sam.

Anyway, according to TMZ, Jamie it turns out also went behind the backs of Kevin's lawyers and basically bribed him with $4000 a week and a place to stay if he would let Britney take the kids on tour with her. Yeah, that's a good idea right? The way it would work is there would be a house in LA, New Orleans and New Jersey. The kids would be there and Britney would fly to them depending on where she is on tour. Kevin would get a house in each one of those places as well so he could be with the kids too, but he doesn't have to go, he just gets the house in case he wants to. Uh huh. Well, Kevin liked the idea but his lawyers didn't like Jamie going behind their backs. The reason? They didn't get paid. This is $30K in fees they would be giving up in this kind of fight.

Britney has said she will cancel the entire tour unless Kevin meets her demands. Well, I think Kevin needs to stop eating whatever it is that is making him turn into Val Kilmer and realize this is about the worst idea ever. Basically Britney wants to shuttle the kids around the country to one of these three houses in different parts of the country for the next year. One week here, one week there and she will fly to go see them. Uh huh. And when the tour goes to Europe will she shuttle them between cities there? Notice here they are being shuttled around the country not by Britney or Kevin but by presumably employees or grandparents. I just don't think it is a good idea for the kids or Britney. I only give her a 40% chance of finishing this tour and flying all over to these bases all the time is just asking for trouble. The only one who loves this deal is Kevin because it is almost $20K a month and two new houses all for just getting Britney pregnant.

Those little boys are so cute, to bad they have Kevin and Brit for parents.

I think those kids are going to be messed up even if they aren't shuttled around. At least they have a better chance of seeing their mom if they go on tour with her.

It is a bad idea for normal kids in normal families but after all you have to consider the source.

They're young and not in school. There's a good chance that later on in life the only thing they'll remember about this event is that they saw their mom.

jax said...

is she can't fathom being away from the kids that long then why tour? if you are that upset about the idea of not seeing them everyday then maybe your priority should be staying home instead of playing Relevant Popstar from 2003.

Bad Fish said...

So, a mom should have to choose between having a career or seeing her kid every day? That's not entirely fair. I'm not saying they should be in a different European city every day of the week but I can't blame her for trying to work it out somehow, as unrealistic as that might be. It'd be inhuman to not want to at least try.

lutefisk said...

I understand her need for wanting to be with her children, but she needs to make sure there is a stable person with them at all times, not that they should be shuffled around by handlers.

Bad Fish said...

Agreed, of course. Its a shame she can't trust her family to be her inner circle, I bet that would have made the situation more feasible.

jax said...

ya in this case she does. she doens't have full custody,so if you want to do a world tour then tough shit. one or the other.

If this were a father without custody, we wouldn't expect him to be able to just take the kids on tour to satisfy his selfish need to be on top again.

let's be honest, the tour is going to be cancelled and this is the first step to gettign the publicity train going so its not about Britney being a basket case and not ready...but becasue of greedy Kevin not getting what he wants and forcing 'poor Britney' to cancel the tour.

"the tour is going to be canceled and this is the first step to getting the publicity train going"

That's exactly what I thought.

i'd love to see britney fully make a comeback and be a huge success. i don't think she's the biggest talent out there by far, but she's a performer and when she was on top of her game she was great at that. i don't see anything wrong w/ her kids going on tour w/ her. if they're well taken care of and in a healthy enviroment, it would serve to "ground" britney on the road and thus avoid the pitfalls of touring for any length of time. i'd love to see kfed step up and help make this happen, he is on the payroll after all.

ecrunner said...

Only Britney could do that; create drama that increases her ratings and her music. Way to go Britney!

Paisley said...

My problem with this is that the kids aren't really going on tour with her. They're being stashed in locations around the country for her convenience when she has a chance to visit. If her plan is to fly to those locations during her non-concert days, why can't she just fly back to LA? Or arrange the tour with strategic visitation breaks?

I don't think Britney is ready for this tour, but her handlers need to keep her busy so she doesn't fall back into bad habits.

equinox said...

I call bullshit on this whole story.

This tour has been a bad idea from the get go.

They can post pictures of Shitney in bikini tops every day but I still don't believe she's going to get this idea off the ground.

PJ Nelson said...

I think, like Jax and Mooski, that this is the beginning ground work for the tour to be cancelled.

Pink Skull said...

I can't imagine the mental health problems her children will have in the future. We should only be so lucky if the drug culture is the only thing they get involved with.

Hey Ent - YOU'RE a lawyer, right? I bet you don't think this "is a good idea". Pfffft - white trash will be white trash – let them do as they will & let Darwin sort them out.

So how much is Kfed getting to be the fall guy? It has to be more than $4K.
