SCOOP! Britney gets some Melbourne retail therapy
CELEBRITY TRACKER BY ANDREA MAGRATHNOV 11 2009 4:06PM
Poor old Britney’s facing a storm of controversy about lip-synching during concerts. So what’s a girl to do when she’s feeling the pressure? Go shopping of course!
Britney hit up Melbourne’s Collins Street on Monday afternoon, first stopping in a toy store to pick up goodies for her boys Sean Preston and Jayden James, who arrived later that afternoon with Britney’s manager (and rumoured boyfriend) Jason Trawick.
She then popped into Douglas & Hope boutique in the Block Arcade and owner Cathy Hope gave us the lowdown.
“Britney was in the store for about 20 minutes with a girlfriend and her minders,” she tells Grazia. “The bodyguards blocked off the entrance so Britney had the store to herself.
“She spent $800 on four dresses,” Cathy revealed. “Two were Fleur Wood and two Children Of The Sun, and she wore one of them out of the store.”
Britney was pretty subdued during her shopping trip, and mainly kept to herself. Her Circus tour promoter Paul Dainty has said that the star has been upset over the negative press she’s receiving in Australia.
We’re hoping Britney doesn’t do all her shopping therapy down south. Our Sydney fashion spies will be on the lookout when she arrives this weekend!
