Jeannette Walls on MSNBC is reporting that British talk show host Richard Bacon says he legally married Britney Spears, and even though the nuptials were obviously a prank, the vows may actually be binding.
It was the first time she’d told anyone she’d split with Justin Timberlake and I had a bit of plan … I had a vicar waiting round the corner with a real marriage certificate. I went down on one knee in front of her and said ‘Would you marry me?’ and she said ‘Hey sure.'” Bacon called in the vicar, who had a legitimate marriage certificate, and they both signed it. But after the show was over, “I’m walking off with the marriage certificate down the corridor when this massive security guard comes hurtling after me, takes it out of my hand and tears it up as he realized what I’d done and that it was legally binding.”
No one would be happier than me to stop having Britney posts on this page, but her entire life is like the punch line to a Jeff Foxworthy joke, and she’s impossible to ignore. If she shows up somewhere wearing nothing but a barrel held up by suspenders and blowing into a brown jug with three X’s on it, please don’t be surprised.
