Britney Spears sued by stylist

But shouldn't it be the other way around?

Britney Spears is being sued by her stylist, who claims the pop star has not paid her for her services since August.

Nancy Rosu says she has purchased and sent clothes to Spears for her and her children since August 2007, which means that she is dressing Spears for her personal life and not professional life.

Papers filed in Las Vegas show Rosu wants $50,000 for clothes, damages and court costs.

According to a lawyer for the stylist, the cheques have already been written but Spears has so far not signed them.

The lawsuit will come as a surprise to many, since Spears’ image lately has comprised of the same tan-coloured boots and bad hair extensions, not the kind of put together image stylists are usually responsible for.

Meanwhile, Britney remains on hold at UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles after being admitted last night. Reports say that Spears was admitted by her psychiatrist and at the hospital admitted to taking Adderall and up to 10 laxatives a day.
