Troubled star BRITNEY SPEARS has not lost her role in new movie MEMOIRS OF A MEDICATED CHILD, despite U.S. reports to the contrary.
The Toxic hitmaker was reported to have been replaced by Canadian singer Samantha Falk in the movie after being dropped by producers.
But the film’s director Tommy Parker denies Spears was axed from the picture.
He tells New York gossip column PageSix, “The rumors of Britney Spears not starring in the movie are false. We still are in negotiations and the possibility of Britney still being in the movie remains the same.
“Samantha has been cast in the movie, but her involvement in the film does not affect the part we would like Britney to play.”
However, in a statement issued on Friday (18Jan08), Falk announced her intention to back out of the film and maintains Spears is not part of the project.
She says, “After reading some of the articles and interviews, I would like to say officially at this point that I am removing myself from all dealings with this film/project. I do not appreciate being misled by Tommy Parker in this manner.
“To my knowledge Britney Spears is in no way attached to this film at this time. Tommy Parker can choose to say whatever he wants. However, myself along with my clients will not be a part of it!”
