Britney Spears in the news: lawsuits and driving

With career nearly dead, Britney Spears remains leader in the celebrity gossip news.

Britney Spears in the news: lawsuits and driving With all the drama surrounding Britney Spears one could easily lose track of what's going on with the pop-star, the latest - French luxury goods company "Louis Vuitton" has just won its lawsuit against Britney Spears. Louis Vuitton filed the lawsuit against the singer, because of a pink Vuitton-upholstered dashboard in her music video "Do Something". The lawsuit was filed in Paris, and although Britney herself has not fined for the trademark infringement, Sony BMG and MTV Online were ordered to stop playing the video and were fined 80,000 euros each.

 This comes in addition to another lawsuit Britney Spears is facing - for allegedly trashing a $1.5 million apartment in Marina Del Rey, California. Real-estate agent Amir E. Zagross is now threatening to sue the pop-star for all the damages done to the apartment Britney rented in April of 2006. "I met Britney at the condo myself with her mother, brother, sons and her bodyguards. They assured me they were immaculate, nice people who would take care of the property. But the damage was significant," the real estate agent was quoted in Life & Style magazine.

 But not all news about Britney Spears are bad - she had finally hired a car driver. After a judge banned Britney from driving around with her two children in the car, she finally broke down and hired a driver to haul them around. Better late then never. “You look at the footage of Britney running the red light – there’s eight guys with cameras at night in the middle of the street. There are no rules now. It’s getting to a point where people that are not involved are getting hurt," George Clooney defended Britney Spears red-light incident recently, but considering Britney's driving record, hiring a driver could have been a matter of life and death.
