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 am always amazed at how many people get so nasty about a celebrity who becomes addicted. From most of the letters I have read most people seem to almost revel in seeing Britney's meltdown. It is really a sad state of affairs when we have no compassion for others. My heart goes out to her two children, an addicted mother and an egomaniac father!
Hope the grandparents can step in somehow. Britney needs our prayers not our condemnation.

She may be "crazy" but with a drop-dead gorgeous body such as her, she can get crazy all over me. Crazy is the best sex you can ever have. I still in love with Britney Spears!!!

It just goes to show you that money and fame are not what they are cracked up to be. It seems to me that these celebs are the most miserable people in the world when they go the wrong direction. When a person has "everything" they could want, there is no other place to go and leaves the soul still thirsty. Too bad Britney and Lindsey are so mislead.

Sometimes I feel like a compassionate Roman sitting in the coliseum watching a poor christian being consumed by a lion. This girl needs to be truly loved and made to know that she's valued as a daughter, mommy, and sister. It pains me to know what desperation she must feel in her heart and she doesn't know which way to turn. I hope that the photogs will leave her alone, but as long as a dollar can be made they will hound her into her demise.
We all need to pray for Brit and ask for her guidance and wisdom. She is salvagable at the present and I've seen worse cases turn and make life work for them.

Mistakes ANY parent can make? Please look into who can take
your kids and raise them right if that's what you think. Those poor poor
A permissive public who doesn't hold these idiots to the
same restrictions that NORMAL society adheres to is exactly what is
wrong. We're normal if we "fear" what people think of us. It proves
we have a healthy ego with proper self-awareness at work intended to
eventually bring around the most immature people over time. Clearly
the police have failed the celebs time and again, which is truly sad.
Our souls need boundaries and, no, she's out there and will be dead
within a couple of years. Stop making excuses for her if you care at

Who is still concerned with this mess of a person, besides the bloodsuckers trying to make money off her?

I am sure her mom/family have done all they can, and are using 'tough love' letting her sow and reap to learn to grow up. She is not fit to be a mom, a star, or much of anything, she asked for OK to interview her, set herself up for a huge fall. she has to take the fall and hit bottom, hopefully she will survive.

Okay people let's get something straight.. it can't be a cry for help if they continue to not get help. These out patient rehabs, arrests, etc. nothing is a wake up call to them so stop feeling sorry for Brit, Lindsey, Nicole, etc. You can't help people who won't help themselves. Period.
