Though tabloid reports suggest otherwise, Britney Spears' manager denied reports that the pop star passed out at Caesars Palace's Pure nightclub shortly after leading the New Year's Eve countdown, saying she just fell asleep.
"By about 1 o'clock, she was just done, so we took her out," the singer's manager Larry Rudolph, told The Associated Press Monday Jan 1st, insisting "She was not drunk. She was just tired and falling asleep."
Furthermore, Rudolph denied reports circulating on gossip Web sites that Spears collapsed shortly after midnight and was carried out by bodyguards. Rudolph said Spears walked out of the club and did not seek medical attention. "There is nothing out of the ordinary here," he said.
On the other hand, a Pure source told the Las Vegas Review Journal that Spears had been knocking back pineapple rum cocktails with champagne when she collapsed shortly after midnight, and that she had to be helped back to her hotel room by bodyguards. "She had a little too much to drink," a Pure source told the Review Journal. "She was assisted out, but she was not carried."
Anyway, the pop singer who is working on her comeback album is now okay.
