Britney Spears caused a media frenzy at the popular Equinox gym on the Sunset Strip Thursday, showing up with her cousin Alli for a quick workout, even checking out a spin class.
Brit and Alli arrived at Equinox around 5:30, at the beginning of the popular gym’s busiest evening hours. Britney rocked the ’80s breakdancer look, taking it to new heights. She wore a wig with a pink Von Dutch trucker hat the entire time she was in the gym, walking in (and later out) wearing an airbrushed tank-top that read “Malibu,” knee-high socks and pink short shorts to match her hat.
The duo took the 6 p.m. spin class at the gym, and according to sources inside the class, Britney didn’t exactly make it through the whole workout.
“It was a huge distraction,” a source inside the class tells “Access Hollywood.” “The instructor was barely able to teach because it was causing such a scene.”
“She started and stopped twice. She got up and left the class twice, then came back in and started again,” the source continues. “Then halfway through, she quit biking, and left the gym altogether.”
Alli stayed in the class, not stopping and starting, but then also left before the class ended, just a bit after Britney’s departure.
Britney left wearing a towel draped oddly around the front of her neck as more than a dozen paparazzi gathered outside the gym’s entrance.
Other celebs seen regularly at the trendy gym include Janice Dickinson, Paris Hilton, Kevin Connolly, Pauly Shore, Kristin Chenoweth, Jodie Foster, and Neil Patrick Harris.
