Britney's Not Pregnant, Y'All. Calm Down.


As reported in this morning's Mix, Ryan Seacrest let fly with one whopper of a rumor yesterday: that the gossip world's fave erstwhile pop-wreck, Britney Spears, was pregnant.

This morning, though, tabloid editors and a handful of paparazzi agencies had their hopes quashed when Brit's manager, Adam Leber, firmly denied any rumors that another bun was cooking in Spears's oven.

Leber shared this enervating revelation with blogger to the stars Perez Hilton:

"She's absolutely not pregnant. I have no idea where this ridiculous rumor came from. Ryan has communication with our camp and could have checked this before saying it."

Darn tootin', Adam Leber. How could anyone be idiotic enough to think Britney -- or anyone with the surname Spears -- would do something so unexpected and clearly crazy? Why, that would be akin to wearing a pink wig long enough to cause scalp mold or addressing one's public in a really bad faux British accent, y'all.

Where did the rumor originate? A "reliable source," according to Seacrest. We'll be watching Seacrest's Twitter page closely today in the hopes of getting either a retraction or a fuller explanation.

Spears is already mom to Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2. She's recently been rumored to be dating suitors as varied as her manager, a back-up dancer, a real estate developer and ex Kevin Federline.
