Crushing news for romantics hoping Britney Spears and Kevin Federline will re-unite: K-Fed has a new sweetie.
The aspiring rocker has been dating Los Angeles hip-hop radio personality Liz Hernandez, according to the National Enquirer.
“Kevin is definitely thrilled with Liz,” a source told the tab. “He talks about her all the time — how smart she is, how she’s marketed herself so well, and how beautiful she is. He’s serious about her.”
The two first met about 18 months ago when the aspiring rapper appeared on Hernandez’s radio show. In an exchange that caused a hubbub at the time, she asked Federline who was better in bed, Spears or his ex, Shar Jackson. Spears was said to be furious because he didn’t say her name immediately.
“Liz is trying to keep [the romance] quiet because she doesn’t want it to get around work, but Kevin can’t help but brag about his conquest to his friends and family,” the source told the Enquirer. “He has tons of modeling pictures of Liz in his home. She likes to cook, and Kevin loves that because he always did the cooking for both Shar and Britney,” says the source, who adds that Hernandez thinks Federline's two children by Spears are “adorable.”
Crazy for Timberlake?Madonna tried to attend Justin Timberlake’s recent London concert incognito.
The Material Girl attended with her producer, Guy Oseary, but her hubby was nowhere to be seen.
“She was texting on her mobile, eating crisps and yawning just before the show began!” according to one fan report. Madonna was wearing a black hooded cape and was surrounded by bodyguards. “When everyone realized it was her and started chanting ‘Madonna!’ she put the hood on and went under the seat.”
Madonna’s rep Liz Rosenberg confirms to The Scoop that Madonna was indeed in the audience, explaining that the two are working on a CD together. She added that Madonna has also been hard at work on a documentary about Malawi, and had a private screening that she attended with her husband, Guy Ritchie, who recently shaved his head.
“She’s been working on it for a year,” says Rosenberg. “Very intense. And profoundly sad — not for the faint of heart. She did an amazing job, I must say.”
Notes from all over
Kelly Clarkson is addressing those reports that she has clashed with the suits at RCA Records. “There’ve been a lot of cooks in the kitchen on all three of my albums. Everybody wants a success, so that’s great. On the other hand, the kitchen gets real crowded,” the American Idol alum told Readers Digest. “They hated 'Miss Independent' on my first album. It was No. 1 for six weeks, then they got behind it. They hated 'Breakaway.' The song I wrote that they hated the most was 'Because of You.' I fought and fought for it, it became successful and they finally got behind it. I’m not complaining, I’ll just say no until I get my way, and I did.” ... What does it cost to get 50 Cent to play at a bar mitzvah? “The last bar mitzvah I booked, I got paid $500,000 for 30 minutes,” the rapper told Blender. “That’s not a fixed rate, but it’s in the ballpark.” ... Janeane Garofalo went for a role in “Mona Lisa Smile” and says she had what may be the worst audition ever. “Julia Roberts read with me. She even took the time to give me a pep talk. She’s Julia Roberts — she doesn’t have to read with anyone,” Garofalo told Entertainment Weekly. “But I knew I wasn’t going to get it. It was so much pressure that I burst into tears and wept at the reading. I was overcome by the feeling that I was going to let her down. The director told my agent, ‘That’s one of the worst auditions I have ever seen.’ That’s how I know for sure.” The role went to Marcia Gay Harden.
