Britney Spears Chews Four Packs of Gum to Cure Nail-Biting Habit?

Britney Spears’ “notorious nail-biting” has gotten “X Factor” producers in a “tizzy” because her fingers now “look like bloody stumps,” claims the National Enquirer.
The mag goes on to say the singer has instead “substituted” chewing “four packs” of gum a day for her other bad habit.
According to the supermarket tabloid, Spears even told the cashier at an L.A. store, “Hey, it’s either gum or chewing my nails — I’m a nervous girl!”
Assuming you can move past that last fake quote, the mag then has an even more made up comment from a supposed backstage source, who says, “When she’s not taping, she chomps on the gum — and snaps it in her mouth so loud even her mom tells her to cool it. Talk about chewing the cud!”
Like Spears’ initials, the story is BS.
A source close to production of the “X Factor” assures Gossip Cop the chewing four packs of gum a day tale is “not true.”
Of course, none of this should be surprising, considering the Enquirer previously reported that Spears is cool with her kids “smoking, boozing and cussing” (WRONG).
