Brit Allegedly Tells Pap: I Will Kill You

8/1/2007 9:25 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Britney SpearsBritney Spears allegedly went all gangsta on the photographer who got the smackdown from her bodyguard last week, threatening to kill him, and throwing a, um, baby bottle at his partner just to show how hardcore she really is.

According to the AP, photog Andrew Deetz is preparing to sue Spears, say his lawyers, after the scuffle last Thursday at Las Vegas' Wynn Hotel. Deetz alleges that after getting attacked by Spears' bodyguard, Britney herself threatened to kill Deetz and, according to his statement, said he should get a restraining order against her because either she -- or someone she "hired" -- would kill him.

Spears' lawyer had no comment last night. Spears' security man -- "J.C." Camera -- could face up to a year in the slammer if convicted of battery.

Brit to Boys: Grandma's a "Bad Lady"


In other Britney news closer to her own home, Life & Style is reporting that Spears is already working to turn her sons against their grandmama Lynne, and that Sean Preston -- though not injured in the Vegas brawl -- was "shaken" by the incident.

The mag says that when Sean asks for his grandmother, his mama tells him, "She's a bad lady," even though they "can't understand what's going on." What's more, an "insider" cited by L&S says that when the going gets tough with the boys, Brit hands them off. "When she needs a break, she gives her boys to the nearest person -- even shopgirls at clothing stores!" says the insider.

As TMZ reported earlier this week, Brit and K-Fed's just-finalized divorce settlement splits custody of the kids 50/50.

Usher Baby Scare – For Real?


Usher insisted yesterday that his marriage to Tameka Foster was still on, and the couple were the picture of happiness in Manhattan Monday, but now Gatecrasher is reporting that sources close to Usher's family think that Tameka's supposed "baby scare" was a "ploy to get Usher to talk to her" after the wedding was called off.

After the last-minute scratch, Usher flew by himself to see his mama, Jonetta Patton, in Atlanta, reports Gatecrasher, and was duly followed by the four-months' pregnant Foster, who then told People that she'd had a scare with the kid. "Tameka is using a publicist and is trying to smooth this whole thing over in her favor," a "friend" tells the Daily News.

sarah, I personally don't hate her, I may give my opinion of her on here, but I don't call names. But yeah, I can understand the dislike the public has for her. She did expose herself AFTER rehab. She supposedly acted like a space cadet just the other day at a fashion shoot. And stripped down in the street to jump in the ocean. If she doesn't like the coverage, she should stay home! She wanted to be famous, am I correct? This is what happens to famous people. It's part of the deal, and she knows it.

Oh please. The paparazzi are not responsible for making Britney act like the lowlife she is. This is her choice and her doing. If she can't stand being in the public eye, she can do one of two things. She can behave like someone who doesn't have to be ashamed of her every slutty move or she can give up her celebrity status and get out of the business. She sure doesn't mind collecting a celebrity sized paycheck, but poor baby just can't take being followed by the paparazzi. Brit, lead a boring, stable life and you'll see how fast the paps leave you alone.

Professional cameras and lenses are heavy. If those guys are wildly jumping around her and her children while swinging two or more cameras and/or lenses, she and her children are in danger of getting hurt.

What is the delay on getting Britney's children to safe arms. It makes me angry that these babies are still surrounded by so much chaos and instability. I can't imagine what this must be doing to them. Their grandmother is probably the one stability they have in their lives and to have Britney trying to confuse their little confused minds about their grandmother...they don't understand. I fear that the reason why Britney's children are still with her is because of her celebrity. Come on social services...let's put these helpless little angels first. Do something now.

She really ought to kill herself and save all of us, including her sons. Grandma is a bad lady?? Grandma made her a star!! Mama needs a hug Brit!! Wake up before you totally end up in the toilet!! Oh wait, threats to the paparrazzi, weird clothes, wild antics....I think we are almost there if history really does repeat itself. No one will be available for the next meltdown. You won't have to kill anyone, because no one cares anyway!!

This is a real person, with real problems. I am guessing she is suffering from severe Post-Partem Depression. You people need to look deep inside yourselfs and figure out whats reality and whats a show.

PRESCHOOLERS, on the cover of a GOSSIP RAG?!?!!

The people at Life & Style RAGazine are like pedophiles, only they abuse children for profit.

I can't believe there are no advocacy groups to protect children from this grotesque abuse.

Well and truly f___ed up.

Okay so she's suffering from post-partem depression. So was Andrea Yates and look at the outcome for her kids. I'm not saying she doesn't love her boys but is she really capable right now of giving them the stable loving environment they need. I'm not saying take them away permanently...just until Britney is willing to get the help she needs...if she is willing to put those boys first. Children need the love from ALL family members who have the mental capacity to give it including grandparents. My grandparents were THE most important people in my life! To separate those babies from their grandmother is a form of abuse....and then to tell them that their grandmother is a bad person. Shame on you Britney!! I believe in karma. Some day you will be a grandmother. Let's see if all your negativity comes back to haunt you. I must wonder, too, from her bizarre behaviors if drugs are involved. If so, all the more reason to get those kids away from her. A judge needs to court order random UA's be done on her as soon as possible. Yes, she needs help desperately but it sounds like she has surrounded herself by yes people. The safety of her children is the priority in this sad situation. Debbie CASA in Colorado
