Britney Spears' Music Video Dance -- It Ain't Her!

2/2/2011 9:30 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears doesn't do the dance moves in her new music video, "Hold It Against Me." She couldn't nail the routines, so a dance-double stepped in to do the legwork ... sources connected with the production tell TMZ.

Multiple sources on the music video set tell TMZ, Jonas Akerlund, the director, was upset that Britney hadn't practiced enough ... so he asked her dance-double -- Allison Kyler -- to fill in.

We're told it got so heated between Britney and the director -- the singer left the set crying on the second day.

Although multiple sources connected with the production have told TMZ the story, Britney's camp flatly denies it.  A rep for Britney tells TMZ, "The accusations could not be further from the truth.  Britney worked extremely hard on this video and rehearsed for six weeks prior to shooting."  The rep adds ... Brit and Jonas got along great, and "Fans will immediately see how inaccurate these claims are once they see the video."

Jonas tells TMZ, "[Britney's] been great throughout the entire process.  At the end of the shoot I got the warmest hug I ever got from an artist, and I look forward to hugging her again very soon!"  Jonas adds, "I've been around long enough to know when an artist gives it their all, and to me It doesn't get better than this." 

Jonas says, "This video is gonna be f**king awesome.  It's all Britney."

So Britney & the director both deny it, but we are supposed to believe some anonymous source that TMZ paid $500 to for the inside scoop? Come on the gossip, don't create it.

In TMZ's defense, Jonas and Britney's camp aren't exactly going to acknowledge TMZ"s report.

Guess we'll have to watch the video to try and figure it out.

She doesn't really sing either so it makes perfect sense that she wouldn't dance.
Love her though.

You guys just totally contradicted yourselves in this "story." Her team and Akerlund did address the claims and both denied the ridiculous accusations. Girl just can't catch a break. Even from you guys who are usually fair in comparison to other tabloids.

LMAO, your article is completely contradicting the bull**** you made up.
Bitch is back.
Not only is this complete bull****, but when the video comes out, your credibility will be a complete laughing stock, more than it already is.

Its one of 3 things:

A) TMZ is full of crap

B) TMZ has solid sources

C) Britney and TMZ are in cahoots to garner more attention to her video to determine whether this is her or not in the video.

I vote for C.

I believe the story straight from Jonas. Brit is a fabulous dancer and she loves it. It's her and not some double.

I believe 101% that it's all Brit in the video as the director said! But it's a win win situation for Team Britney anyway. This story will create even more promo/publicity for the video hence it will get more tv/internet play and will create more hits.

Good idea Larry Rudolph!!

That's really kind of beyond wrong of you TMZ if both people denied it. The video will prove you wrong.

All I want to know is: Who is actually singing in the video?

sad that people are so gullible they believe everything they read. These rumors have already been squashed by her rep and said the comment was ridiculous.

I know she can not dance like she use to due to the injuries to her knee, she herself and her mother said that
