Representatives of pop star Britney Spears and hotel heiress Paris Hilton have hit back at reports that the pair are involved in a lesbian tryst.

Rumours began last week in the British tabloid press that the two had become intimately involved, Britney’s husband of 55-hours Jason Alexander even said that his ex-wife had fancied Paris.

Paris and Britney have recreantly been pictured out on the town with each other, and the News of the World went as far as to say that Paris had become attracted to Britney and encouraged her to go out without any underwear in infamous pictures which appeared in The Sun newspaper.

A source told the News of the World: “Paris loves the fact that Britney gets turned on by going commando.

“She even demanded that Britney take her panties off in front of her. Britney just obeyed. They went into a toilet and came out 20 minutes later, clothes and hair all over the place.”

The source goes on to claim that Paris is teaching Britney how to pole dance.

But representatives for the stars say the rumours of a lesbian relationship are rubbish.

Spears told New Woman magazine: “We’re two successful, independent women, having fun together. We’re not a pair of lesbian blondes.”

Hilton’s representative Elliot Mintz, called the reports “silly.”

He told the Wolrd Entertainment News Network, “They are friends, and you will continue to see them together. Paris thinks the world of her.”
