Britney Spears obtains court injunction

Singer gags British press allegations

Britney Spears has been granted a High Court injunction which prevents the British press from printing allegations about her recent stay at a US clinic in Malibu.

Legal representatives are also trying to apply for an additional court order which demands that UK publications disclose the sources of their stories.

A statement from the star’s London lawyers read that the singer “intends to challenge false allegations that have already been published”.

The statement goes on to explain that media outlets are being served the injunction: “so as to assist them in not making the mistake of carrying out such further disclosures if approached by this person”.

Britney Spears has already begun a legal challenge against “false allegations” made against her.
