Britney Spears the ringleader in her own circus

Britney Spears has been busted by the Chicago Sun-Times over her calculated and deliberate seeking out of paparazzi.

Spears has been dumped by attorneys, her entire management team, including her mother, Lynne.

Spears is acting as her own Barnum and Bailey in her three-ring circus.  The Sun-Times claims she is “ensuring she will continue to grace the covers of the celebrity magazines and supermarket tabloids she likes to call ‘the rag mags.’ “

“Even though her professional career and personal life are train wrecks and she seemingly is paying little attention to her appearance, she is doing everything she can to make sure she’s photographed almost daily,” a former Britney insider still in touvh with the new posse told the Sun-Times.

The Sun-Times also spoke to key staff members of several high-profile hotels, including the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills and the Beverly Wilshire.

The Sun-Times reports that “Spears or one of her posse members makes daily calls to all the hotels — as well as various popular restaurants, nightclubs and upscale boutiques — to ‘find out what’s going on … who’s there today,’ her ex-aide told the Sun-Times Saturday night.”

“Britney is obsessed with keeping herself in the public eye. She has told me several times, “If they don’t see you [in the media], they forget you…. I’m not going to let that happen!’ “

Sources at both the Four Seasons and Beverly Wilshire told the Sun-Times the singer and actress often calls the hotels herself, querying which press junkets are scheduled, to determine if stars will be present, a sure-fire guarantee the paparazzi will be outside..
