Britney Spears news! The pop tart appears to be ignoring rumor mill reports she has been fired from “The X Factor” for being a big fat bore. The celebrity was spotted out and about on Dec. 27, 2012, with fiance Jason Trawick and her celebrity kids — enjoying lunch and looking less than spectacular while she did it.
Just Jared shared some truly horrible photos of the star sighting, saying, “Britney Spears and her fiance… [were spotted heading] back to their car after having lunch at Claim Jumper on Thursday (Dec. 27) in Thousand Oaks, Calif. The 31-year-old entertainer brought along her boys Sean Preston and Jayden James for the lunch outing.” However, they refrained from saying anything negative about the singer’s frumpy appearance.
“One would think that if you knew the paparazzi were going to be out and about hunting you down because something so scandalous as getting fired from a lucrative $15 million contract was happening that you might take the time to at least make yourself look presentable, Britney…” said one Hollywood insider after seeing the Just Jared pictures.
The same source revealed that her disheveled appearance may have been because she had no idea the news had hit the internet yet, noting that she may have been reeling from a blow dealt by Simon Cowell. “If Brit got fired, chances are she had just found out about it in the days prior to Christmas. Cowell would have told her to hit the bricks soon after getting back the season finale numbers — ones that took nearly a 20% dip…” claimed the disconcerted gossip monger.
Was Britney Spears dressed like a schlep because she’s depressed? Or was she simply not expecting the paparazzi to not be interested in getting her photograph? Was she rebelling against the “X Factor” by dressing like a dowdy bore simply so her pictures would not go viral and inadvertently help Simon Cowell promote the reality television show?
Regarding speculations she has already been fired, Pop Watch refused to confirm the news. Instead, they shared:
Rumors have it (sorry Adele, going with the Fleetwood Mac spelling) that Britney Spears — along with Demi Lovato — will be asked to step down from her X Factor judging seat by next fall’s season 3.
But it’s all just anonymous-source gossip for now — as a Fox spokesperson told EW, “No one has discussed next years judging panel yet; any reports otherwise are complete speculation.”
Another Hollywood gossip source interviewed claimed, “All that is certain is that fans have only one real thing to say about Brit’s latest paparazzi pics. Sweetheart, you do not look quite so amazing anymore. To that end, if you wants to keep the gig money coming in from lucrative reality television appearances, it might be wise to dress yourself up a bit like any proper stylist or experienced fashionista would suggest.”
