Britney Spears escaped fire in Malibu yesterday with a trip to the San Fernando Valley -- but that doesn't mean she escaped the paparazzi -- one of them practically barreled over her while she got ice cream!
Dippy Brit hit up Coldstone Creamery on Ventura Blvd in Studio City yesterday with always protective friend Sam Lufti, the photogs completely surrounding her inside the store. When it was time to leave, her buddy grabbed Brit's hand and started running. One eagerly sprinting photog then booked it too -- and ended up slamming into the popwreck.
Spears, understandably, complained about paps getting too close, but continued to mug for cameras as she sat in her car before driving off. FYI -- Brit's favorite Coldstone flavor: Cake Batter.
