Celeb news - can you ever get enough of it? In the world of Britney Spears the news is that the pop princess will be shelling out a pretty penny for the suit brought against her by a former TMZ photographer. Apparently, Spears ran over his foot back in 2007. Ricardo Mendoza sued Ms. Britney back in May for assault, battery and negligently driving her car. The incident took place in Beverly Hills.
It's interesting that it only took four months for the judge to decide. Oh and I guess the day of the incident was also the same day when Spears lost custody of her two boys to K-Fed. I'm guessing she was pretty distraught after that and Mendoza must have just been in her way.
Also interesting to note is that Mendoza worked for TMZ.com at the time and the site auctioned off her tire-stained sock to the singer's fans and donated the proceeds to charity. Hey, at least some good came of it!
I have to say though that I almost don't blame her. First, all celebs take such a beating from paparazzi every where they go. And second, the woman had just lost custody of her babies. We all know she was not in a "good place" back in 2007. I'm sure the poor guy just stepped up at the wrong time. He's lucky she didn't actually drive over him!
