Britney's Disastrous

Photo Shoot

7/23/2007 8:56 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0723_britney_ok_01_ex-1TMZ has learned that Britney's self-arranged photo shoot and interview with OK! Magazine was a complete disaster. We're told that the photos are so bad, execs at the magazine are, at this moment, trying to decide whether to report what actually happened -- or sanitize the truth to protect the pop train wreck.

According to multiple sources, Britney's behavior during the interview was "nothing less than a meltdown." She was, according to our sources, "completely out of it" during the shoot. The photos are "so bad" we've learned, that to publish them could "kill her career."

Apparently, Brit Brit's eyes rolled back in her head at one point, causing her to look half dead. Her mood, we're told, was extremely erratic. She took frequent bathroom breaks our source says, and each time she returned her mood would change. She was also completely paranoid during the entire interview, fearing at one point the ceiling was about to cave in on her. Out of control y'all!

We've also learned that Brit had some issues with hygiene on the set as well. At one point, Britney ordered up some fried chicken to munch on. We're told after she chowed down, she wiped her hands on a several thousand dollar dress that she was wearing for the shoot, staining it with grease. Yuck! One of her dogs also needed some assistance in the housebreaking department. Our on-set spy says that the dog pooped all over the floor, and Brit used (what else?) -- a dress to clean it up! How trashtastic!

As for how Brit looked for the photos, another nightmare. We've learned that OK! hired two of the best hair and makeup artists in L.A. to transform the once-bald beauty into something more presentable, but she wasn't havin' none of that. She refused to let the hired help touch her, opting instead for her "skanky friends" to do her hair and makeup. No wonder she always looks so fantastic!

And if you're wondering where her mom/publicist/lawyer/friend/ANYONE was to help her out, we're told that even her cousin Alli (who until recently was working as her personal assistant) couldn't deal, and is "done" with Miss Spears.

We'll see when OK! hits the stands this week -- if they actually have the balls to print the truth about what happened. We're guessing they don't!

A call to Brit's rep was not immediately returned. A rep for OK! would not discuss the upcoming issue.

I don't know if this is true or not, but this morning on the news they reported that Britney was telling friends she was pregnant again, but didn't know who the father was this time. How could a person possibly be this messed up and still function and be working on a new CD? Is it true or not?

brahman, it is illegal to expose yourself, which she does all the time, even in california. she should be arrested for that.

Britney ran an ad for dancers for the video and it says "compensation will be pro bono." Is that normal in the music industry?

This is coming from TMZ so I know it's a complete lie. Just like Entertainment tonight said Brit was caught driving with her baby in her lap again. Complete lie, she pulled over to change his diaper and freaked out when they tried to photograph her baby naked (much like TMZ did recently) SICKOS!!.

SPIN SPIN SPIN it sells so they all SPIN it!

it sounds like Britney was taking OK! Magazine for a ride, im betting the clothes she was wearing were brought in from an OK! stylist and she was acting like that just to make people talk ...and see how fast its reached the news...Britney is very attention hungry right now (ie the swimming on the beach in her skimpys) someone put this woman in jail...seriously

Yeah, I kind of don't believe it. The press exaggerrates everything and twists things. While it is possible, judging by her past behavior, it's not likely that a mother who has custody of 2 small children and is working on a come back is going to go to an interview and photo shoot while out of her mind on drugs. Even if she was, her "handles" would probably call it off and say she was sick or something. I thought of this: What if the "eyes rolling back in her head" incident was a silly pose she was trying out during shooting and someone decided to play that up and say it was for real? Like I said, people love to twist things.

Publications such as yours constantly calling her trash and kicking her when she is down is the real tragedy. This poor girl, pushed into the biz by her mom, seeking a life of meaning and when that failed she hurts. Lets be kind, she is in pain, she hurts like the rest of us you know. How CRUEL we are to laugh and criticize someone who just needs love, how would you like it? So if your trainwreck ends up dead are you going to laugh and feel proud that you contributed?

Why be so cruel - to publish allegations which you clearly cannot verify? Slow Paris news day? Cut Brtney some slack, this young woman is so clearly in trouble.

My greatest concern is for her children and their safety. They are vulnerable helpless little human beings. If it's true that her behaviors are this erratic her kids are in danger. Britney sounds mentally unstable. Someone close to her please do something to help and protect those precious babies before something tragic happens.

I do hope OK! publishes the pictures and does a juicy report on the events at the photo shoot.

Can't wait to see the pictures and read the wreckage, y'all!
