Britney Spears Has Another Visit with Her Sons

Britney Spears saw her sons again Monday, while her father sought to quickly end a civil rights challenge to his control of her affairs.

The singer’s children Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1, were driven to her Studio House by Kevin Ferderline’s bodyguard for a three-hour visit.

It was the second visitation in three days; on Saturday, Spears saw her children for the first time since Jan. 3 after working out a structured visitation arrangement with Federline.

Meanwhile, attorneys for Spears’s father Jamie filed another round of papers in federal court on Monday, urging a judge to quickly end a civil rights challenge to Jamie’s control of his daughter’s $100 million estate and keep the co-conservatorship case in state court.

Jessica Simpson & Tony Romo's Big, Texan Valentine's Day

The couple get cozy over spaghetti and Cristal champagne in a Dallas restaurant

For Jessica Simpson Valentine's Day was spent Texas-style: The singer and beau Tony Romo dined together at Nove Italiano restaurant in Dallas.

"All eyes were on them," one insider says of the singer and the Dallas Cowboys quarterback. "But they sat in a corner booth to try and get some privacy."

Simpson was wearing a sexy crimson dress, and the pair were seen being very affectionate with each other. The couple kick-started their romantic meal with a bottle of Cristal champagne, followed by spaghetti bolognaise.

As for dessert, the sweet of the day was on the menu, of course: Simpson and Romo cozily shared chocolate-covered strawberries along with chocolate mousse before heading out through the restaurant's special VIP exit (also known as the kitchen), where they darted off in a waiting limo. offers the best on beauty product-perfumes-designer watches-…

Britney’s Family Gets More Power Over Her Estate

Britney Spear’s family members tightened their grip on her finances Thursday as the court extended her father’s co-conservator role and granted her brother influence over her day-to-day expenses.

L.A. Superior Court Commissioner Reva Goetz made the rulings amid signs that the singer’s family has helped keep Britney out of trouble since her early release from a psych ward.

Her father Jamie Spears has been overseeing his 26-year-old daughter’s well-being and her estimated $100-million fortune since Feb. 1, when Goetz named him and Andrew Wallet temporary co-conservators – giving them the right to employ bodyguards who control Britney’s actions and restrict her visitors.

On Thursday, Jamie and Wallet requested that the status quo be maintained until March 10 because a psychiatric evaluation of Britney, due Wednesday, had not yet been submitted. The commissioner granted the extension, scheduling a hearing that day to consider extending the conservatorship even further.

Inside Jennifer Aniston's Birthday Bash

All work and no play? Not exactly. But Jennifer Aniston spent her 39th birthday toiling away on the Vancouver set of her upcoming romantic drama, Traveling.

Still, the actress did receive a special treat from her cast and crew on Monday. They surprised the Birthday Girl with a "giant ice cream cake," says a source. "The crew all gathered around and sang a rousing rendition of 'Happy Birthday.' [There were] hugs and kisses for everyone, from everyone."

Good wishes also poured in from far-away friends, as several large flower arrangements were also delivered to her trailer.

Two days earlier, Aniston had a chance really to cut loose, when she and 20 friends – including Traveling director Brandon Camp – took over the private room of Cioppino's Mediterranean Grill for a lively dinner party.

"Everyone ordered so many dishes," an observer says of the group, which tucked in to the restaurant's signature "Cucina Naturale" cui…

Heath Ledger Died Because Of An Overdose

Best known for his role in "Brokeback Mountain", Heath Ledger died because of an accidental overdose of prescription medications including painkillers, anti-anxiety drugs and sleeping pills, the New York City medical examiner's office said on Tuesday.

"Mr. Heath Ledger died as the result of acute intoxication by the combined effects of oxycodone, hydrocodone, diazepam, temazepam, alprazolam, and doxylamine" it was said in a statement.

"We have concluded that the manner of death is accident, resulting from the abuse of prescription medications."

At his 28years, the Austalian actor died in an apartment in Lower Manhattan.

Ledger's father, Kim, said on Wednesday that: "While no medications were taken in excess, we learned today the combination of doctor-prescribed drugs proved lethal for our boy. Heath's accidental death serves as a caution to the hidden dangers of combining prescription medication, even at low dosage."

Britney's father retains control

Britney's father retains control of her assets until Feb 14 hearing

A US Judge ruled Monday that Jamie Spears will keep control of his daughter's financial and personal affairs until a psychiatric report is assessed on February 14 during a further court hearing

The father of troubled Britney Spears will retain control of her financial and personal affairs until a psychiatric report is assessed on February 14, a US judge ruled on Monday.

Following Britney's hospitalisation last week, James Spears was granted conservatorship - which allows him to make decisions involving the singer's assets and ban people from contacting her. The measure is taken by US courts when it is deemed someone is incapable of caring themselves or cannot handle their own affairs.

The singer, who is currently receiving treatment in an LA medical centre, will be evaluated by a physician before the case is examined again

A physician has been appointed to evaluate Britney's progress. The doctor's r…
