Inhaler? We Hardly Knew Her! -- Brit's Drug Test

11/13/2007 1:40 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Britney Spears will now say her false positive drug test may have been caused by her inhaler, which she uses for asthma.

Sources connected with Spears told TMZ yesterday that the drug that may have caused the positive was Provigil, used to treat narcolepsy. But TMZ did some digging and found Provigil would not show up on a court-ordered drug test.

Now the same source says the drug that showed up may have been Albuterol, an asthma drug. But, again, we checked and Albuterol is not an amphetamine, and the class of drug that showed up on the test was an amphetamine

K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will press the issue tomorrow in court. Stay tuned.

Dancing with the Stars: Click to watchTMZ has the lowdown on where to go for a little one-on-one time with some of the "Dancing with the Stars" cast -- Hyde!

After every episode, many of the dancers and so-called celebs like to get their Salsa on at the Hollywood club, last night's guests included Mel B, Maksim Chmerkovskiy, Derek Hough, Cheryl Burke and last season's runner-up, Joey Fatone. Marie Osmond hasn't yet made Dancing Cast - click to launchthe scene.

TMZ also caught Jane Seymour yesterday afternoon, taking in a lunch with her sisters at the Ivy. Good luck getting a reservation at either locale!



Dr. Jan Adams -- His Appearance on "Oprah"


Click to play!In November of 2003, Dr. Jan Adams -- the plastic surgeon who operated on Kanye West's mom before her death -- appeared on an episode of "The Oprah Winfrey Show."

According to his bio, Adams has made "countless appearances" on television -- including serving as host for a show on the Discovery Channel called "Plastic Surgery: Before and After."

He also co-hosted NBC's "The Other Half," with Dick Clark, Danny Bonaduce and Mario Lopez.

Another interesting place that Dr. Adams has made plenty of appearances? Jail!

TMZ has obtained this booking photo of Dr. Jan Adams.

Dr. Adams was arrested and booked on March 31, 2006, after pleading no contest to DUI. This was his second drunk driving conviction. This photo was taken after he turned himself in on December 29, 2006. He was released the next day.

Adams has quite a history. In addition to his March 2006 arrest, he was arrested in September 2002 after his vehicle lost control and hit a parked car. At the time, the good doc told officers on the scene that he lost control of his car when another vehicle failed to stop for a traffic signal. He was unable to provide a description of that car.

As to Donda's death, the procedures which precipitated her death took over eight hours. Normally, it should take half that time.

Several doctors at Centinela Hospital, where West was taken, tell TMZ they believe the excessive amount of time it took to perform the procedure strongly suggests either something went wrong during the operation or the doctor was just too inexperienced.

TMZ has turned up yet another medical malpractice lawsuit against Dr. Jan Adams, and this one is eerie.

Bonita Hovey claims in December 2005, Dr. Adams and other doctors performed a tummy tuck on her and botched the job.

King of Horror Still Makes 'Em Scream


Horrormeister Stephen King has chilled the bones and unleashed the screams of millions, but probably never the way he did yesterday in Manhattan -- with a diaper.

The author/phenomenon was signing autographs (non-threateningly) outside his New York hotel, when one slightly deranged mother asked King to sign her baby's diaper. King, saying he'd "changed a few," obliged, which sent the little girl, whose poop-pouch was being taken away, into paroxysms of panic.

No word if the inscription read, "All work and no play make baby a dull girl."

There is something sleazy about a web site run by a lawyer who, in theory, knows better than to publish crap that invades doctor-patient privelige.

While I don't like Ms. Spears' behavior, it is none of our business what is or is not found in her urine.

The Comedian Dennis Miller said it fairly well. That he was skipping even joking about Brittney because (even though she brough most of this upon herself) he didn't want to be remembered as the persons that laughed as this soul implodes on herself. It is sad to watch. I pray for any lost soul.. my thoughts.. gk

Perhaps TMZ should do their homework about what exactly is involved with drug testing before they start running their judgemental stories. Personally, I have been drug tested for the military and high level civilian positions. The lab must check for each individual drug. Bio-chemistry doesn't just gloss across the board when you test for specific substances. There are specific components and chemicals that are used to define each individual chemical, i.e. THC, Opiates, Benzodiazepine, Cocaine, etc. One can test positive for opiates if they eat poppy seeds. It's not a home pregnancy test folks, it's much more complicated than we think. Veteran, USAF

I feel right sorry for Brittany but she should keep personal things personal and stop giving the paparazzi their fuel. She will break and no one except for Kevin and Brittany know what is going on. If she is on drugs she will have to just pray and clean up her act and do what is best for her children. If this is the lifestyle she chooses then so be it and leave the children where they are but for gosh sake paparazzi give it a rest already and let her deal with it.

I knew that if there was any way for Oprah's name to appear in this mess it would. I believe Oprah has good intentions but she is spreading herself too thinly. I saw Kanye's mother on Oprah and tell you the truth I wondered then about mom and son. In my opinion, Kanye has little or no talent. His mother was trying to get all of the cash that she could out of that cow while she could. Where was/is Kanye's father? I am sorry for his loss but Mom should have spent more time being mom than trying to be a "girl" friend.
