Britney Spears tour promoter says the star is "extremely upset" at the savaging she has received for her much-publicised lip-synching and allegations fans walked out of her show.
Paul Dainty said that the star had been left traumatised by the media coverage which suggested fans stormed out of her Circus tour performances at Perth's Burswood Dome on Friday, due mainly to the fact that she was miming during segments of the two-hour show.
"Britney is aware of all this and she's extremely upset by it," Dainty told The Australian.
"She's a human being. I'm embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting."
Yesterday, words such as beat, up, embarrassed and fabrication were used by the veteran tour promoter to describe the media coverage.
"It's the biggest lie I've ever heard," Dainty said.
"I'm so angry. We can take heat if there's something wrong and people can review shows badly -- that's something you have to live with -- but to say people stormed out of the show was an absolute fabrication."
