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.

“Madame George”

Van Morrison | 1968

One of the first stream-of-consciousness epics to make it onto a Van Morrison record, his drawn-out farewell to the eccentric "Madame George" lasted nearly 10 minutes, combining ingredients from folk, jazz and classical music. The character that gave the song its title provoked speculation that it was about a drag queen, though Morrison denied this in Rolling Stone. "If you see it as a male or a female or whatever, it's your trip," he remarked. "I see it as a ... a Swiss cheese sandwich. Something like that."
