Britney Spears Secret Marriage

She did it again! Spears sneaks off to marry (USA Today)

In her second surprise wedding this year, Britney Spears, 22, married Kevin Federline, 26, on Saturday evening, a spokeswoman for the singer’s record label confirmed Sunday. This time, the pop princess traded her trucker hat for a tiara as she wed Federline at a small, secret ceremony at a private home in Studio City, Calif.
Rumors were rampant that Spears and Federline, who became engaged in June, would marry later this fall. But the pop star exercised her prerogative by surprising everybody — even her own mother and sister.

It’s the second time this year Britney has pulled a fast one on her family. On Jan. 3, she got hitched in jeans to childhood chum Jason Alexander in Las Vegas. That marriage, characterized by Spears’ camp as “a joke (taken) too far,” was annulled 55 hours later.

This five-minute wedding was held at 7:30 p.m. at the home of the tailor who created the bridal party’s tuxedos, according to Star magazine’s Web site.

Spears and Federline, a backup dancer on one of her earlier concert tours, met again at a Hollywood club in April. Federline has two small children with his ex-girlfriend actress Shar Jackson.

Somehow, a five-minute wedding seems appropriate. And, really, you’d think she could at least marry a starting dancer.

    I hope she got a prenup, or that guy’s going to take half of her estate within a year. At least that’s my prediction…

    I’m thinking of a new twist on that cellphone commercial:

    “Are they still married now?”

    “Are they still married now?”
