Britney's Broken Heart Threatens Career

Pop babe BRITNEY SPEARS called off her appearance at the MTV EUROPEAN MUSIC AWARDS last week (06NOV03) after her boyfriend dumped her and went back to his wife - according to insiders.

The ME AGAINST THE MUSIC singer ditched the Scottish ceremony and headed home to her mum in Louisiana, America after dancer COLUMBUS SHORT reportedly ended their relationship and broke her heart.

A source close to the troubled star says, "She's having a tough time. She's been drinking heavily, which hasn't helped things."

Britney was spotted smooching with Columbus two months ago (SEP03), and they are also thought to have enjoyed a number of mini breaks together.

However, the dancer has since decided to return to wife BRANDI, who is expecting the couple's first baby in the next few weeks.

The source adds, "It wasn't just MTV she walked out on, but all promotion for her new album. She was due to play G.A.Y at the ASTORIA in London last night (08NOV03) with MADONNA, who sang on her new single.

"That's been a disaster in itself as it's already dropped out of the US Top 30 in just three weeks. Now all her UK promotion is up in the air just as her new stuff is being released."

Britney's dad JAMIE insists, "She wasn't feeling well but she spent some time with her mother and me. She's feeling better now and she's gone back to New York."
