Britney Spears is NOT “slamming” MTV over the VMAs, despite a seemingly fabricated report. Gossip Cop can correct the story.

“Britney SLAMS MTV After ‘Humiliating’ VMAs Disaster,” RadarOnline blares in a headline on Friday. A so-called “insider” is quoted as saying, “Britney was legitimately upset about the way that the situation was handled at the VMAs. She felt like she was flat-out lied to by the producers.”

How so? The site writes, “Spears was originally named as the headliner for the event and her image was used to promote the heavily publicized awards show. However, fans noticed during the actual awards show that it was Beyonce who was given a prime mid-show slot and nearly 15 minutes to perform. To add insult to the injury, it was Spears’s first time returning to the VMAs stage after taking a career nosedive in 2007 with a sloppy performance to her then hit-single, ‘Gimme More.'”

“Britney thought that she was the headliner and could not believe how they screwed her over,” claims the outlet’s alleged tipster, who adds, “Everyone in Britney’s camp was really quite blindsided by Beyonce’s performance. Hardly anyone knew that Beyonce was going to be the main event. Britney is saying she will never do the VMAs again.”

Gossip Cop isn’t surprised to see RadarOnline crafted a dramatic tale about Spears and the MTV Video Music Awards. After all, the webloid also did so before the event even took place. Last week, it was said Spears was “freaked out” over her VMAs performance.

But not only did a reliable source tells us the allegation was entirely untrue, but another contact point-blank said to Gossip Cop, “It’s Radar making up stories.” We were assured the site did not have insight on Spears and her camp. That hasn’t changed in the passing of a mere week.

Rather, this is the webloid continuing the saga it started before Spears ever took the stage. And far from the singer slamming MTV, it’s now Spears’ rep slamming RadarOnline for peddling an untrue version of events. “There is not an ounce of truth to this,” the spokesperson says of the allegations.
