Britney Spears pregnant?

Is Britney Spears sporting a baby bump?

Britney Spears was seen dining out in Hollywood this week sporting what can only be described as a ‘noticeable bump’, sparking rumours she is pregnant.

Britney showcased her ‘bump’ in a tight black dress on a night out at a sushi restaurant in LA.

But family sources have denied she is pregnant, putting her rounded tummy down to piling on the pounds after her dad Jamie banned her from using any drugs apart from those prescribed to her by the doctor for mental health problems.

The singer is still barred from court-monitored visiting time with her children from her previous relationship with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Reports in the US say Federline is keen for Britney to be involved with Sean Preston and Jayden James, but a compromise could not be agreed at a closed-door court meeting yesterday.

Meanwhile, Britney’s lawyers have failed in their bid for a news blackout on the star’s custody battle.

Attorney Anne Kiley argued a gag order is necessary because the media coverage of Spears’ fight with Federline over their two children is ‘emotionally and physically’ dangerous for the singer.

But Los Angeles Superior Court commissioner Scott Gordon declined Kiley’s request for a ban on attorneys discussing the case with reporters.

Gordon did acknowledge Kiley’s concern about the frenzied paparazzi attention Spears receives wherever she goes, saying: ‘The concern really is the conduct of the photographers. That’s a law enforcement issue and an issue for the kind gentlemen and ladies of the press to deal with appropriately. The concern you have is a real one. But it should be dealt with without infringing on the First Amendment.’
