Britney's Disastrous Photo Shoot

7/24/2007 12:34 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsTMZ 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 Gucci 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 Chanel dress to clean it up! How trashtastic!

UPDATE (8:33 AM PT): In a surprising move, OK! Magazine says they're going to show Britney as she really was on the day of her disastrous photo shoot -- the good, the bad and the unbelievably ugly!

In an exclusive statement to TMZ, OK! Editor-in-Chief Sarah Ivens said, "OK! Magazine spent a heartbreaking day with Britney Spears and witnessed first-hand an emotional cry for help that will leave you shocked and sad. This week, on newsstands Friday, the truth will be told."

I have never been a Britanny fan but I have a heart...leave her alone. It would be something if "OK!" magazine decided to kill those pictures and show some class. Watching someone self destruct and getting enjoyment out of it is human nature at it's worst. Showing that "melt down" is just pure and simple greed and it's wrong. As human beings we have come to not expect even the slightest gesture of kindness from each other. It is just sad.

I don't know why any of this even matters. All of Brittneys melt downs lately i totally dont blame her. if you had a camera and ppl in your face and life 24/7 dont you think that you'd get a little upset too. Sure most of the time news like this is interesting but really why should we care about celebs personal lifes??? its not like we care that much about the neighbor tow doors down the street!!! The paparazzi is out to catch celebs doing anything that could make them look bad or ruin their career. personally i dont think that brits a bad mom and that shes just caught making the same mistakes ANY parent can make.

WHERE IS HER FAMILY!?!?!?!? Even though she isn't speaking to them right now, which is obviously a sign of something gone wrong, they NEED to HELP HER somehow!!! SHE NEEDS HELP! What happened to Felicia , her old assistant?! Britney was normal when she was around! Felicia or Mama help Britney, whoever Jamie Lynn, the girl needs help fast! I think it's still severe post partum depression or something like that because ever since her divorce & having her adorable babies she's gone down hill, unfortunately! Come on Britney, call your MAMA!

She is and has been a complete mess! She has too much money, NO talent what so ever, and is completely out of control. I feel for her children...She just needs to go away, take care of herself and her kids, and forget about a "come back"...heaven only knows she does not need the money but she does need to get out of the public eye and move on.

Good, good, good, maybe we will wake up and let this jerk who had the golden ring from the mery go round fade into obscurity and never be heard of again. But before this happens make sure those kids are taken care of and provided for with love, attention, and caring. It is so sad, to have so many people to influence, be a role model that can sway opinion and teach take that opportunity and un it into the ground.
What gives them the right to act this way, let them be led away to some room, lock the door and throw the key away. Just think in years down the road, some child is going to be able to say, "that was my mommy."

You need to get to a good facility away from L.A. Go to people like Robin Williams and Eric Clapton and listen to there advice on how to stay clean. Your mind will come around and so will your career. Wait a year then come out. Stay off the stage and in front of camera's. This is your life girl not the media's or Hollywood. Live by the 12 steps. They work.

Remeber your treating a disease not something to fool with.

i was/am really pulling for her to get it together. people who say she has no talent are totally forgetting that this girl, was able to capture the attention of the world and truly entertain. Her recent sad, attempts to garner attention however, should make us painfully aware that the price of fame can be too much for some to bear. i wish some other celebrities, somebody, anyone would reach out to her, she is truly in need of help. i fear that if left alone, she is going to face a truly terrible fate. she may not return to the status she once held, but maybe with help, she can get a lot better.
where's her record label, doesn't she have any friends who really care??

Britney's done. The only ones keeping her memory alive are the paparazzi. And now that she's been caught bashing them, she may not have their attention much longer, other than to catch her sickening demise on film. This girl needs help, and fast. She's gonna end up another subject for the show, "Where are they now? Child stars gone bad." I feel bad for her children and her family, but I feel worse for her. Such a waste.
