Britney Spears is in the middle of a new internet sex scandal after fans around the globe were sent raunchy emails from porn star BRITTANY SPEARS this weekend (22-23MAR03).

The email, with the message "I am so hot and horny," was a link to a porn website featuring naked college girls and hardcore sex scenes.

And, although the site was intended for adults only, simply by clicking on the connection allowed young Britney fans to catch a glimpse of the hardcore porn on offer.

A spokesman for the pop star was unavailable for comment.
