Britney Spears is “piling on the pounds,” and boyfriend David Lucado is enabling her weight gain, claims the National Enquirer.

“The once-buff pop princess is porking up,” writes the tabloid, which says Spears has been “struggling to keep her weight in check as she kicks off her two-year residency at the Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino.”

According to a “source” for the Enquirer, “David is undermining her hard work by sneaking her bags of Flamin’ Hot Cheetos, pepperoni Hot Pockets and her favorite chocolate treats, including Skor bars, Snickers bars and Hershey’s Whoppers.”

While her dad Jamie is said to be upset about Lucado feeding Spears’ junk food habit, the tabloid’s source says, “Britney loves that David allows her to indulge. Their favorite date-night activity is making homemade, cheese-loaded pizzas in her wood-fire outdoor oven.”

That sounds pretty good.

Unfortunately for the Enquirer, which snipes at Spears’ “jelly belly,” this article is as inaccurate as it is mean-spirited.

The tab was wrong when it recently insisted that Spears and Lucado are engaged, wrong when it claimed she was “afraid she was pregnant” last September, and wrong again here.

Sources close to the situation tell Gossip Cop that Spears, pictured above looking slim at an Oscars party on Sunday, is in excellent health and great shape.
