Britney Spears is NOT “falling off the wagon,” despite a report. Gossip Cop can exclusively correct the story.

The allegation comes from RadarOnline, which blares in a headline on Tuesday, “Oops, Is She About To Fall Off The Wagon AGAIN! Britney Spears ‘Is Drinking Booze Again,’ Insider Claims.” It’s said in the accompanying photo gallery, “Britney Spears is on top of the world, but could she be about to lose it all again? After Spears was photographed looking worse for the wear following a concert in London earlier this week, a source close to the superstar singer told RadarOnline.com that she’s started drinking again.”

Readers are then told to “click through seven photos of saucy Spears to see if insiders think she’s headed for another meltdown.” The webloid relies on unflattering paparazzi pictures of the pop star, with it being said she’s “not looking so hot.” Its so-called “source” is quoted as saying, “Britney has been having a lot of fun lately.”

The supposed snitch goes on to claim that Spears is having “a few drinks now and then,” and it’s “only a recent thing.” But the alleged tipster ultimately adds, “There really is absolutely nothing to be worried about because Britney has complete control over it.”

So, what was the point of this piece? To make readers think Spears is on the verge of another “meltdown,” and convince people to click through the gallery. It’s sensational clickbait, and RadarOnline probably only included that last quote to cover its butt.

Still, the site blatantly tried to misinform and mislead readers. Gossip Cop, however, is exclusively told there’s absolutely “no truth” to the suggestion that Spears is about to “fall off the wagon again.” Simply put, the story never should have run in the first place.
