GEORGE CLOONEY has defended troubled singer BRITNEY SPEARS for recently running
a red light – blaming her erratic driving on the overzealous paparazzi chasing
Clooney claims Spears was distracted by the photographers surrounding her
car, adding he thinks it’s unlikely she would have driven through the red
traffic signal otherwise.
He tells TV show Entertainment Tonight, “You look at the footage of Britney
running the red light – there’s eight guys with cameras at night in the middle
of the street.
“There are no rules now. It’s getting to a point where people that are not
involved are getting hurt.”
On Monday (19Nov07), a videotape of Clooney angrily confronting two
photographers for driving dangerously surfaced online.
