Columbus Short Claims He Had Fling With Britney Spears & Her Parents Used Racial Slur

Columbus Short is making a claim about Britney Spears and her parents.

The 38-year-old Scandal star, who used to dance backup for the 39-year-old Glory pop superstar in the early ’00s, claimed that he had a fling with Britney and her parents referred to him using a racial slur.

In his 2020 autobiography Short Stories, he said Britney pursued him in 2003 when he was working with her as a dancer and producer, and that they were intimate together on a trip to Rome.

In his book, he alleged that he and Britney got close before the release of her 2003 album, In The Zone.

“She sent us a jet, and just like that, we were in New York having a wild party for my 21st birthday,” he wrote, claiming that they partied at “Keith Richards’ apartment uptown…and we were all in there going crazy.”

He wrote that Britney “was on me like white on rice, and would not leave me alone the entire night. Britney had her eyes on the prize and wasn’t about to stop until she got what she wanted.”

She allegedly pulled him aside at the party and insisted he travel with her to Rome to prep for her next video.

“I really tried my best, but this girl put on the full-court press. We ended up being intimate that one time. I never slept with her again after that, though. This was a dangerous sexual alliance for every reason under sun, and I think that the worst part of it was that I was making the rumors an actual reality.”

While on their trip, he claims: “I was next to [Britney] while she was on the phone with them crying while she had it on speaker.” He claims he heard them say “Why are you f–king that n—-r?” And that, “Britney looked at me so apologetically, knowing I’d heard it. I shook my head and didn’t say anything, because what was there to say?”

He alleged that when the two were traveling to shoot the video for “Me Against the Music,” her manager “was growing more upset with the continued press … and her parents were NOT happy,” eventually leading to a falling-out during a game of truth or dare, when Britney apparently said she would marry Columbus, while he picked his girlfriend at that time.

“I was fired not too long after that, and Britney changed her number so I couldn’t contact her,” he wrote, adding that he learned: “Don’t s–t where you eat, even if you really have to go.”

He then discussed the alleged racial slur incident on Inside Hollywood.

“I wasn’t shocked when it happened. Look where they’re from … they’re from Louisiana. The way it came out was so effortless, like that’s how they speak. I wasn’t shocked and I wasn’t hurt by it, I was just like, ‘Wow, this is … OK … I know who I am around here…because they have black bodyguards doesn’t mean behind closed doors they don’t use that word.”

“After that I felt like maybe [Britney] was using me to piss them off for some reason. I think she is a really sweet person that was tormented in a position on a high level that I can’t imagine. I liken it to Princess Diana. She was the pop princess. Britney couldn’t go nowhere — her world [was] completely controlled in this bubble. There would be times that she would act out, and I don’t blame her. She was trying to find her way. I love Britney to this day… I feel bad for her. I wish the world knew the Britney I knew.”

Her mother Lynne denied the claim in a statement: “I want to be very clear. Those terrible words are not remotely in my vocabulary. I would never say that to anyone, much less my daughter. Ever.”

Her father, Jamie, also denied it in a statement via source: “Jamie was not there, and not involved. In fact, during this time period, Jamie was not involved in Britney’s business at all.”

Britney recently talked about her body’s appearance on Instagram.

Jamie Lynn Spears Named Trustee of Britney Spears' Fortune

Britney Spears‘ sister, Jamie Lynn, is now the trustee of a trust that holds the fortune belonging to the 38-year-old Glory pop star, The Blast reported Tuesday (August 25).

According to legal documents obtained by the outlet, Jamie Lynn was named trustee of the “SJB Revocable Trust,” set up by Britney in 2004 to protect her vast fortune and provide for her children’s financial future.

The trust was “amended in 2018, naming Jamie Lynn as the ‘trustee’ and the move was signed off on by her co-conservators Andrew Wallet, and their father Jamie Spears. According to the documents, while alive Britney Spears is the ‘sole beneficiary’ of the SJB Trust, but it outlines what steps are to be taken if she passes away.”

Jamie is asking the court to approve the appointment of Fidelity Financial Management to create “blocked accounts” that will hold all of Britney‘s assets and serve as advisors with her investments, the documents also outline.

It’s “unclear if Jamie is asking to move the assets to these accounts now, or in the event of Britney‘s death. But, the trust outlines exactly what should happen to her fortune in the case of her death…in other words, if she passes away, Jamie Lynn will ensure that the assets and cash be transferred to the trust set up to take care of her children.”

This is the first time her sister has been named in connection to her conservatorship.

Her mother, Lynne Spears, recently filed to become more involved in this trust.

Lynne Spears Files to Be Included in Decisions About Britney Spears' Finances

Britney Spears‘ mother, Lynne Spears, is requesting to be included in decisions made about her finances.

The 65-year-old mother of the 38-year-old Glory pop superstar filed legal documents obtained by The Blast on Tuesday (July 14) with the Los Angeles County Courts to be included in any “special notice” of “all matters” having to do with Britney‘s trust.

Britney filed the “SJB Revocable Trust” in 2004 to protect her multi-million dollar assets and set up her kids for the future, which was established to “hold and manage her material financial assets during her lifetime, and provide distribution of those assets upon her death.”

If you didn’t know, Britney was put under a conservatorship in 2008 and removed as “Trustee” of the trust, with the court appointing temporary successors of the trust, according to The Blast.

“Now, it appears Lynne wants to be involved in any changes or movements involving Britney‘s vast $60 Million fortune. Lynne‘s lawyer, filed the documents on July 13, 2020, to be included as an ‘interested person’ in all matters pertaining to the SJB Revocable Trust, and any hearings discussing the trust itself. The filing was the first time anything has happened in the trust case in many years,” the outlet reports.

Fans have expressed concern about the legitimacy of the conservatorship over the years, more recently with the “#FreeBritney” movement on social media. Here’s what recently happened to spark more speculation…

Britney Spears' Conservatorship Judge Orders Investigation of Her Case

The judge involved in the conservatorship of Britney Spears is ordering an investigation of everyone involved in the case.

The judge ordered a probate court investigator to examine the case prior to the next hearing in September, The Blast reported on Wednesday (May 15).

The investigator will “conduct extensive interviews with all the people involved in a conservatorship case, including guardians, conservators, doctors and even law enforcement officials who have had contact with the subject of the conservatorship. The investigator will also be reviewing medical and financial records, including custody agreements and even contractual obligations…such as her Las Vegas residency.”

Britney and her mother Lynne Spears reportedly claimed in court last week that her father Jamie Spears committed her to a mental health facility against her will and forced her to take drugs, according to sources via TMZ. The judge then reportedly took no action and ordered an evaluation of Britney.

Britney‘s current manager, Larry Rudolph, spoke out on Wednesday (May 15), saying the conservatorship, which has been in place since 2008, is there “for a reason.”

“The personal issues that Britney is dealing with are highly complicated and the conservatorship is there for a reason. The courts of the State of California take this very seriously. I hope the people allow her to have her private time,” he told Variety.

“Let her be a civilian for a while. She’s given so much. Give her time,” he added.
