Britney Spears is “being kept in the dark” about reviews for her new album, claims RadarOnline, an outlet that once spread a ludicrous rumor about Kevin Federline’s brother fathering Spears’ son. The webloid, which has been sloppy in previous coverage of Spears’ career, now alleges that the pop star’s team has “shielded” her from critical reception.

“Britney’s manager, Larry Rudolph, and father, Jamie, won’t allow her to see any of the bad reviews,” explains a so-called “source” for RadarOnline, which notes that the pair “remain conservators of Spears’ estate” but fails to mention that the outlet misreported that the conservatorship was ending more than three years ago. The RadarOnline insider continues, “Britney doesn’t even have access to the internet and lives in a bubble!… No-one (sic) wants to upset Britney. If she were to read anything negative, it could send her into a bad tailspin and both Larry and Jamie know that can’t happen with her upcoming shows in Vegas about to launch.”

Uh-huh. So Britney Spears, who as we type is conducting a Twitter Q&A with iTunes, has no Internet access? We know RadarOnline may find this hard to believe, but Spears has been a major music star for fifteen years — it’s safe to say she’s aware of less-than-glowing reviews. A source close to the situation tells Gossip Cop the notion that Spears is “kept in the dark” is “absurd.”
