Britney Spears rehires personal assistant

martes, 10 de febrero de 2009 |

Britney Spears has rehired the assistant who worked for her at the height of her success.

Felicia Culotta, who played the teacher in Spears' iconic Baby One More Time video, worked as her assistant from 1998 to 2007.

She is leaving her job as assistant to teenage band the Jonas Brothers to rejoin Spears.

She told Spears' website she "had to be a part of this exciting time in Britney's career".

Culotta, described on the website as a "long-time friend of the Spears family", said: "Britney has always held a special place in my heart and, over the course of the last year, I have seen her work harder than she ever has in her entire life."

She added: "I love Britney and missed her dearly."

Successful comeback

In 2007, pictures of the singer shaving her head were shown worldwide.

The singer was frequently seen looking dishevelled and behaving erratically before she lost custody of her two children.

Spears has staged a successful comeback after her public breakdown.

After releasing a new album in December, she is due to start touring across the US and the UK in March.

Last week, it was announced that her former manager Sam Lutfi was suing her parents for libel and defamation.

That came after a judge granted Spears and her parents a restraining order against Mr Lutfi, paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and a lawyer.

Her parents claimed Mr Lutfi controlled their daughter's life by drugging her and taking control of her finances.

Mr Lufti says their claims have caused him "humiliation" and "distress".
