Brit's Party Crash to Cost Her $400K?

1/8/2007 10:25 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears in Vegas, NYE 2006.Britney Spears' New Year's Eve exit might've cost her a cool $400,000.

The lurching pop princess, according to Ben Widdicombe, won't be getting her six-figure appearance fee from Pure nightclub in Las Vegas because she "failed to spend the agreed amount of time" at Pure, and had to be carried out. What's more, Brit's official story – that she fell asleep – is making the club "furious" because it suggests that the joint is a snoozefest.

TMZ's sources say it ain't so. We're told that the club is wildly happy because they got more publicity from the incident than they ever dreamed of. A rep for Pure tells the Daily News that the Britster won't be docked for ditching the club and that the fee was actually less than $200K.

Whitney HoustonWhitney: Rosie Is (or Was) A "Fat B***h"


Donald Trump isn't the only person who can't stand Rosie O'Donnell. In an interview with Newsweek several years ago, Whitney Houston called Rosie a "fat b***h" because O'Donnell had suggested that Houston had a substance abuse problem. But, according to reporter Allison Samuels in her new book "Off the Record" (via Page Six), the magazine decided not to run the item, because it was too "demeaning" and – here's a real shocker – "Whitney was clearly not in her right mind." No word on whether Ro and Nippy have made up since.

Still from Screech's sex tapeIs That Really All Screech in the Vid?


Dustin Diamond is screeching anew about his infamous sex tape, which we first previewed for you on TMZ. The "Saved by The Bell" star told "The Dr. Keith Ablow Show" that he tried to stop the tape, which shows him cavorting with two young women, and that it was a dare from some poker buddies. The tape's purveyor David Hans Schmidt, however, tells Rush & Molloy that the former Screech was "in on this deal from the start," and that he's not even sure that it's all Diamond – at least where it counts – in the video. "You never see his face and his [manhood] in the same shot," says Schmidt, who adds that he might sue if Dustin is misrepresenting himself. Diamond's girlfriend (really? who? what?) tells the Daily News that she can vouch for the package.

ENOUGH WITH BRITNEY......she is boring....she is boring.....she is boring...... since there would not be any change in her white trash behavior, why don't TMZ wait for her album and give her a chance to redeem herself through her work..... I have read the stories you post here day in and day out and they are all the same....in short: Britney is a white trash no good mom who happened to be a singer also....we understand...... unless she acquires a brain and start making positive news, let her and us be....we already know the trailer park mentality she has and what a bad mother she really is.....there is no news that are good news regarding Britney lately so lay off her.....there is no point in pushing her life down more than she does herself......JUST LET IT GO TMZ!

Why does TMZ use a Headline to grab attention and then dispute their own post at the end of the story. If is didn't happen then don't post that it did.

Britney is sounding more and more like Paris everyday...Paris just got fired for failing to appear 4 times a year at "Club Paris" in Orlando. As for Screech...stop the conspiracy theories! I'm sure it's him...he's just trying to save face.

>>O'Donnell had suggested that Houston had a substance abuse problem

Suggested?? I think she was dead on correct with that observation. Whitney and Britney can ride the has-been's bus together. Why, their names even rhyme.

She gets involved in a lot of lawsuits (which she creates), and has bad business dealings a lot also. Her restaurant NYLA went broke. She was sued by NIKE some years back and lost. She was sued by a t-shirt company (the only one she won). She sued US magazine and lost and others she has been in. Suing, lawyers, and court cases cost a huge amount of money. She does not have a large income at this time. She has been spending far more in the last three years then she has brought in. If you check all of her divorce papers, other filings, and documents, she only has about $32 million left. She has gone from $150 million about four years ago down to $32 million. That is a loss of $118 million in four years. She is not acting smart, and I am sure a lot of people are taking her money all the time, not just K-Fed, since she is always partying and going crazy. When a star falls, it is not uncommon for everyone to take a part of the pie (their money). Look at Michael jackson, Elvis, and many others.

Whitney looks like Michael Jacson when he's been turned down by some five-year-old trick's money-grubbing mother.
