Britney & K-Fed Hide Baby for Buzz?

10/24/2006 8:52 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The mystery deepens over Britney Spears and Kevin Federline's second child: Now, not only are people questioning the baby's name, but there's buzz everywhere that the kid might actually be a girl, not a boy, as had been widely reported.

Just last week, reports began to emerge that the baby's name was not in fact Sutton Pierce but Jayden James, but now a source tells MSNBC's Jeanette Walls that everyone might have it completely wrong, and that the baby is in fact a girl. More supporting evidence came when K-Fed told a radio show recently that it was "crazy" that people tell him that the baby's a different sex than it actually is, and when Britney was spotted at tot-shop Planet Blue buying pink baby clothes.

Whatever they're doing, it's all in the name of PR; an MSNBC source says that the mystery over the baby is being used to help maximize impact right around the time of K-Fed's Oct. 31 CD launch, and that the first photos of the child are scheduled for release right around then.

Tom Wants To Change His Worst Day Ever


Tom Cruise might be able to relive and do something about his worst day ever – the day he decided to go couch-jumping on "Oprah," perhaps? – in his next film, that is. The actor, according to Variety, is finally getting back to work, and one of the roles he's considering is playing a man who sells back chunks of time in his life for a chance to redo that one awful day. The movie will be directed by Spike Lee.

He's also considering a political drama possibly directed by Robert Redford in which he plays a congressman opposite Meryl Streep's journalist, and something called "The Ha-Ha," in which he would portray a Gulf War veteran who becomes mute from his injuries and has to take care of a 9-year-old whose mom disappears (do you smell Oscar, too?). Variety cautions that Cruise did look at three other projects earlier this year, and passed on all of them.


Madonna's Adoption Comes With Red Strings Attached


Madonna's critics are charging today that her adoption of a Malawian baby is more than a little tied to her involvement in Kabbalah, the cultish Judaic theodicy that she's espoused for years. As Rush & Molloy report, in the orphanage that she's building in the African nation, the curriculum will be provided by Kabbalah Centre, which runs a joint organization called Raising Malawi. "It's very sad, that, unlike other celebrities, Madonna cannot do charity work in Africa without so many strings attached," says cult expert Rick Ross of cultnews.com. "Why does she insist on a kabbala connection?" The project coordinator for Raising Malawi responds that they "have no intention of spreading kabbala, or indoctrinating people."


Party Favors: Vanessa To Play Flame's Flame! ... Shanna Wanted "Crazy Celebrity" ... Diddy Gets Pissy


Vanessa Minnillo has landed her first acting gig -- as the love interest to Chris Evans' Human Torch character in the "Fantastic Four" sequel. It's the first significant acting role for the former beauty queen/current MTV veejay and Nick Lachey squeeze ... Some folks have blamed the demise of Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler's marriage on their MTV show "Meet the Barkers," in which their life together was minutely scrutinized. But Travis disagrees. As he tells Spin magazine (via MSNBC), "MTV doesn't break up relationships. What breaks up a relationship is when people are concerned with being some crazy celebrity. And my wife was." ... Diddy, according to Page Six, wasn't happy with his management team while he plugged his album "Press Play" at Sirius studios in New York, and threw a "tantrum." The rapper "had his team around him and he was cursing up a storm, dropping F-bombs and throwing around the N-word." No comment from his f-ing reps.

What buzz? No one has been wondering a/b their baby until recently when the name thing came up. Who cares? How classy and considerate to use their own child in attempts to generate interest in a crappy album. Brit must be desperate to turn her thug, mouching husband into someone that doesn't make her look like such an idiot. Two words...WON'T WORK.

Brit is determined to make Kfed popular, she will stoop to the lowest low for him. I don't care if it's a boy or girl, I just hope she doesn't use those kids for more of his personal gain! She's always trying to "out fox" the tabloids until she wants to get a point across.

Tom - I don't care.

Madge - That's what she gets!

Vanessa - Good for you! Just don't let it go to your head and think your "bigger" than Nick, like his foolish ex, Jessica!

If you have to use your baby as a PR tour de force, then you aren't as big a celebrity as you'd like to think you are. Thats a crime and absolutely encases everything that is wrong with the world today.

Regarding the Tom Cruise's news - he must have choosen to play the part of a chubby guy in his next movie 'cause he reportedly has put on 21 lbs lately .. the thing is, it's pretty bad timing with his wedding supposedly coming up.. if he continues like this, he will look like a fat p*g in a suit on his wedding day!

Its very sad that Britney is so out of the limelight that she would use her newborn child to gain any PR for herself or that loser husband of hers. If she would have stuck to her carreer instead of his she wouldnt have to use tricks to be in the papers .

I agree, Sheila. What a scummy thing to do, using your child to promote your album.

As to Tom Cruise, I hear that he only has sex "flamingo style," that is, standing on one leg, because he is afraid of getting germs. It is all explained in this video, believe it or not.
