Britney Spears Faces Lawsuit Head On

Britney Spears, may look relaxed in her white button down as she strolled through L.A. yesterday, but her legal issues are heating up.

Spears, supported by ex-hubbie, Kevin Federline, is gearing up to launch a countersuit against her ex-bodyguard, Fernando Flores. Flores filed a lawsuit yesterday for sexual harassment and child abuse. He claims she exposed herself to him, had sex in the same hotel room as her children, four-year-old Sean Preston and three-year-old Jayden James, and that she wanted to beat her sons with his belt.

A source shared, “Kevin told Britney she should do it and she strongly agreed that winning this case and forcing Flores to pay – big time – may help quash other future nuisance lawsuits against celebrities. Like the ones you often see filed by disgruntled, fired ex-employees – like nannies, housekeepers, drivers and bodyguards.”

It’s hard to know what the truth is here, but it looks like everybody will have their day in court. The plot thickens.
