Arnold briefly lived in the same Los Angeles building as the TOXIC singer last year (04), and he was stunned when he stepped out of his condominium one day.
He says of Spears, "Ed McMahon always says he discovered her on STAR SEARCH, but I discovered her on the floor of the hallway when I tripped over her... I thought it was my wife who had passed out from shopping but it was (Britney).
"She was laying out flat and I said, 'Are you okay?' And she said, 'Yes sir.' And I said, 'Do you know who I am?' She said, 'Yes sir.' I said, 'Do you need some help?' She said, 'I'm locked out sir.' I said, 'I'll get security to let you in.' She said, 'No, sir, I'm fine.' It's when she had her knee hurt and she was heavily medicated. It looked like a lot of fun.
"I had to run upstairs. About a half-hour later I called my sister-in-law (and said,) 'Hey look in the hall and see if Britney's on the floor out there,' And she was!
"I tell you this is how sometimes women think. She was waiting for her boyfriend at the time, that KEVIN (FEDERLINE) guy to come home so he could see her and go, 'Oh, you fell! Okay, I'll help you up.' Now I would do that for like three minutes so my wife would feel sorry for me, but a woman will do that for hours."24/02/2005 04:07
