COMMENTARY

Keith Olbermann rounds up tabloid and entertainment news every night on “Keeping Tabs.” On Monday, Jan. 8 he said this:

Britney Spears has finally reached an agreement on joint custody of her children with Kevin Federline through the end of the month.  Under set settlement, Mr. K-Fed of Fed-Ex can be with the kids for four hours three times a week and Miss Spears can take them to Florida for a week.  Whether she can still afford to take them anywhere is another matter. 

Britney short-changed?
The “New York Daily News” reporting that Miss Spears might lose the $400,000 she was reportedly paid for appearing at Pure nightclub on New Year’s Eve.  Sources tell the paper that because she had to be carried out around 1 a.m., after either collapsing or falling asleep at the party, she violated the terms of the appearance contract.  The club is denying any penalty, but does say she was paid far less than $400,000. 

Mommy wars
Adopted children are proving to be a fighting point between Angelina Jolie and Madonna.  This seems inevitable.  Miss Jolie, who adopted her son Maddox from Cambodia and her daughter Zahara from Ethiopia, says that while she’s horrified at the amount of criticism Madonna garnered by adopting her son, David, she would not have done it, telling “Gala Magazine,” "Madonna knew the situation in Malawi, where he was born.  It is a country where there is no legal framework for adoption.  Personally, I prefer to stay on the right side of the law.  I would never take a child away from a place where adoption is illegal."
 
No word back from Madonna on the slight, but according to Malawian officials, who were monitoring her fitness to adopt David, she is a "loving mother."
