Britney Wedding a Fake?

Legal document lays out play for "faux" nuptials

September 22, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Britney Spears and Kevin Federline are likely not married yet, according to the new issue of Us Weekly. The magazine obtained a four-page legal document signed by the couple stating that they "intend to participate in a 'faux' wedding on September 18, 2004; however, they do not intend to and shall not validly marry one another on said date."

According to the magazine, Spears and Federline not agreeing on the terms of a prenuptial agreement is what held up the couple from procuring a marriage license.

"This is all ludicrous," a spokesperson for Spears told Us. "They are happily married, and I have no reason to believe otherwise."

Spears and Federline celebrated what most thought was their wedding day late Saturday night/Sunday morning at the Studio City, California, home of wedding planners Alyson and Jeff Fox. Approximately twenty-five close friends and family members, including Spears' mother and sister, were in attendance.

Spears and Federline may be planning another wedding, or simply the paperwork: according to California state law, a couple may certify its nuptials retroactively.

Song Stories


Lou Reed | 1972

Opening Lou Reed's 1972 solo album, the hard-riffing "Vicious" actually traces its origin back to Reed's days with the Velvet Underground. Picking up bits and pieces of songs from the people and places around him, and filing his notes for later use, Reed said it was Andy Warhol who provided fuel for the song. "He said, 'Why don't you write a song called 'Vicious,'" Reed told Rolling Stone in 1989. "And I said, 'What kind of vicious?' 'Oh, you know, vicious like I hit you with a flower.' And I wrote it down literally."
