At this point, Britney Spears must be used to dealing with bad PR. The pop star has denied that any of her ex-bodyguard’s charges of sexual harassment and child abuse are true. Fernando Flores, who worked for Spears for a short period of time, recently accused her not only of exposing herself to him and making him deeply uncomfortable, but of beating her children.

In response, Spears, 28, called it an "unfortunate situation where someone is trying to take advantage of the Spears family and make a name for himself." The note, posted on her website, went on to say that "Ms. Spears and her attorneys have every expectation that his matter will be dismissed by the courts.” Spears has been seen publicly, smiling and eating lunch, as reported by Us Magazine

Spears’ ex-husband and father of her children, Kevin Federline, 32, came to his ex-wife’s defense. In a statement released by his lawyer, Federline called the allegations "baseless" and said he is "satisfied that the allegations are a product of economic motives." Federline still holds primary custody of the two children, although Spears has extensive visitation rights. –AMY LEE
