Scoop: Britney’s fans not happy with Lifetime ‘biopic’

Britney Spears’ fans were not pleased with the unofficial Lifetime biopic about the pop star that aired Saturday night, according to The Daily News.

“Britney Ever After,” was immediately panned by the pop star’s fans for inaccuracies and unlikely portrayals.

Notably among those panning the film on Twitter was actress Sarah Michelle Gellar.

“Who lit this movie #britneyeverafter and why does he hate women?” she tweeted.

Gellar, who live-tweeted throughout the entirety of the movie, even created the hashtag #OppositeofOscar.

Many fans called out the movie because of the actress playing Spears, Natasha Bassett, reportedly looked nothing like Spears.

Others called out the “historical inaccuracy” of some of the choices the film made.


Lifetime, for its part, ran this disclaimer at the end of the movie: “Although based on a true story, some characters are fictionalized composites, and some events have been compressed, reorganized or fictionalized for purposes of dramatization.”

Saldana announces new baby

Actress Zoe Saldana announced on Instagram on Saturday the birth of her third child with husband Marco Perego, according to Us Magazine.

“Marco and I are elated to share the news of the the birth of our son Zen,” the actress announced on Instagram on Saturday, February 18. “We couldn’t feel more blessed with the new addition to our family. #threeboys… oh boy!” she posted on the social media site.

The couple were spotted leaving the hospital with their newborn son on Feb. 13.

The actress and Italian artist are already parents to twin boys that were born in November 2014.

‘Flip or flop’ and fleeting fame

“Flip or Flop” co-hosts Tarek and Christina El Moussa are reportedly freaking out about losing their fame after the couple split in December, according to Hollywood Life.

After the split, the couple decided to continue their show together and to be professional and amicable for the sake of their children.

But now Hollywood Life reports the two are desperately trying to get their own solo shows and are “terrified” their careers might be over.

A source tells Hollywood Life “Unfortunately, they are terrified of going back to ‘civilian’ life off of TV … Christina loves being on TV and wants to parlay ‘Flip Or Flop’ into a bigger career in front of the camera. Tarek is also about the perks that come with being a ‘TV star’. He loves the attention he gets from women.”
