Brit's "Blackout" Wipes Out

11/23/2007 7:36 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

One thing Britney Spears is not thankful for: the support of the record-buying public.

That's because "Blackout" is now officially a total and utter flop. It has sold a total of 430,000 copies after a full month of release, according to the ever-perspicacious FOX News, and it's going nowhere fast. Consider that each of Brit's first three albums sold north of 10 million units (and the first two – more than 20 mil), and that the fourth, "In the Zone," sold 609,000 in its first week. Britney's getting' dinged hard, y'all.

After his hearing, George – real name George O'Dowd – left the court without a word, and prosecutors would only say that the incident took place April 28 in George's flat.
