The ex-girlfriend of Britney Spears' fiance KEVIN FEDERLINE found the news of his latest romance especially painful - because one of her dogs is named after the pop beauty.

Former MOESHA star Shar Jackson, who gave birth to her and Federline's second child earlier this month (JUL04), was horrified when she learned of Spears' romance with dancer Federline from news reports in April (04).

And Jackson admits she found it even more upsetting to have a pooch running around the house bearing the superstar's name.

She says, "All my dogs are named after pop stars.

"In the beginning of all this (Spears and Federline's romance), I sent her to live with one of my friends for a few days, because I didn't want to say her name."
