Britney Spears Trying To Save Amanda Bynes By “Helping Her Record Music”?
“Britney Spears Wants To Lend A Helping Hand To Amanda Bynes??” asks a headline from Perez Hilton, who once again poses questions he can’t answer.
The blogger claims Spears is “becoming increasingly concerned” with Bynes’ recent erratic behavior, and is trying to save the young star before she’s a “complete loss cause.” Perez quotes a supposed “source” as saying, “Britney had a brief conversation with Amanda the week before her arrest and promised to personally help Amanda get her career back on track by helping her record music.”
The purported “insider” adds, “Britney also opened up to Amanda about her painful breakdown and about how she was so against her dad taking out a conservatorship – but she told Amanda that it wound up being a life, career and fortune saver.” Perez goes on to note that Spears’ alleged offer may be helpful to Bynes, “no matter how far fetched it seems.”
OK… So Perez acknowledges that this report is totally far-fetched, and yet he ran the story anyway without bothering to fact-check with Spears’ camp. That’s because, quite simply, the blogger cares more about stirring the pot than reporting the truth. Gossip Cop, on the other hand, checked in with a rep for Spears, and we’re told “it is not true” that the pop star ever reached out to Bynes.
