Britney Spears Fires Back at Bodyguard’s Sexual-Harassment Lawsuit

Good news for fans who feared Spears’s new bit of legal trouble — a sexual-harassment lawsuit from former bodyguard Fernando Flores that claims Britney engaged in sex acts in front of him and threatened to fire him after he told her there was a fifteen-minute wait for a Slurpee at a movie theater — would be the beginning of a backslide into general craziness. A representative for Spears has released a very normal-sounding statement on her official website which leads one to believe this will all blow over very quickly.

This lawsuit is another unfortunate situation where someone is trying to take advantage of the Spears family and make a name for himself. The Department of Children and Family Services conducted a proper investigation surrounding Mr. Flores’ accusations and have closed the case without any further action. Ms. Spears and her attorneys have every expectation that this matter will be dismissed by the courts.

That’s great for Britney and all, but we’re a little bit sad now that we don’t live in a world where that Slurpee thing is true.
