Looks like Britney Spears has become a Coke fiend. Not that other kind of coke.

The pop princess has been drinking 24 cans of Coca-Cola a day, according to Star.

What’s more, the “Toxic” singer hasn’t been an ideal patient, according to the tab.

“Britney has a seriously bad attitude problem,” an “insider” tells Star. “She’s been very demanding; acts like a 12-year-old and throws temper tantrums when she doesn’t get what she wants!

“She refuses to pick up after herself and even asked if she could hire a maid!” adds the source. “She’s asking for this and that, special food, special everything ... and she’s not that nice to anyone.”

It’s likely that Spears is acting out, reports that mag, because she feels she doesn’t belong in rehab in the first place.

“I heard she keeps saying she is just sick from postpartum depression and that she does not have any real addiction problem, which is a joke,” the source tells the mag. “She has an addiction.”

Affleck's anti-meat ad is banned in Boston
Some TV execs couldn’t stomach a commercial starring Ben Affleck’s brother, Casey.

The ad has been banned at a slew of channels, including Food Network, E!, MTV, the TV Guide Channel, and all eight broadcast stations in Casey’s hometown of Boston.

Execs repeatedly rejected the spot because it was “too graphic” according to PETA.

“When people ask me why I don’t eat meat or any other animal products, I say, ‘Because they’re unhealthy, and they’re the product of a violent and inhumane industry,’” Affleck says in the commercial, while images from factory farms and slaughterhouses flash across the screen.

The only place that PETA could find to air the ad: its Web site, PETA.org.

Notes from all over
Halle Berry says those reports that she was a battered woman aren’t accurate. “I’m so not a battered woman,” the “Monster’s Ball” star tells the April issue of Reader’s Digest. “Have I been in physical altercations with men? Absolutely. But the minute that happens they see the back of me. My mother was a battered woman. She was battered by my father.”  . . . Kathy Hilton, better known as Paris’s mom, wore a borrowed $1 million platinum-and-diamond studded jacket, to an event called “The Women’s Project” in New York on March 12. . . . Iggy Pop keeps getting scolded for things he did in his druggie days that he no longer remembers. “People come up to me once in a while and yell at me for something I did to their house 23 years ago,” the rock dinosaur tells Stuff magazine, “like puking in their mailbox.”
