Britney Spears had strong words for US Weekly Thursday (February 17) after the magazine published unauthorized photos of the couple on their honeymoon. Spears said in a statement, “I am disturbed by the photos and article that appeared in this week’s issue of US Weekly Magazine, which they call my ‘private honeymoon album.’ Kevin (Federline) and I chose a resort location where we were promised absolute privacy and seclusion.”
Spears went on to say, “Unfortunately, staff members took photographs of us, which we allowed them to take once we were assured they were being taken only for private use in a scrapbook they gave us as a souvenir of our honeymoon.”
She added that she had been contacted by other magazines–such as Star–who were presented with the photos and refused to publish them. She said, “Kevin and I thank those other magazine for respecting our rights to privacy.”
Us Weekly said in a statement, “Coming from a celebrity who sold pictures of both her wedding and her stepdaughter, it’s unlikely the issue here is privacy. Could it be that Britney is seeing red after not seeing the green from these photos? Britney Spears should start a magazine if she’d like to dictate her own coverage.”
Federline and Spears honeymooned at a remote Fiji island resort which caters to couples looking for absolute privacy.
