BRITNEY SPEARS' MENTAL PROBLEMS STARTED WHEN TIMBERLAKE DUMPED HER: On the same day Timberlake married Jessica Biel, the civil trial pitting BRITNEY SPEARS and her family against her ex-manager Sam Lutfi entered its second day. On Friday, lawyers for Spears and her family gave their opening statement in the defamation trial, and revealed something pretty interesting about Brit's much publicized breakdown in 2007; it was all Justin Timberlake's faut!

The  lawyer for Britney Spears’ father Jamie told jurors that Britney “changed” and “became depressed” after breaking up with Justin back in 2003.  According to the attorney, before her relationship with Justin, Britney was a, quote, "ray of light." But after the relationship "ended painfully", she became angry and depressed, and her downward spiral began.

Ironically, the KEVIN FEDERLINE years were actually a relief to Britney's parents because they represented a relatively calm period. But after they split up, Britney went off the deep end again. That's when Sam came into her life and made things worse. Jamie’s lawyer claimed that Sam was so heartless, he would hide Britney’s dog just to watch her cry and then made himself look like a hero by ‘finding it.” The trial is expected to last three weeks.

BABY POOP - IT'S A BOY FOR ADELE, AND A GIRL FOR HOLLY MADISON: The UK press is reporting that ADELE welcomed a baby boy on Friday, but there's been no official confirmation from the couple. This is Adele's first child. Boyfriend Simon Konecki has a young daughter from his first marriage.

2. Former "Girls Next Door" sHOLLY MADISON has revealed that she's having a baby girl. Actually, it was Madison’s boyfriend/baby daddy, Pasquale Rotella, who first spilled the beans when he posted a photo of Madison and her sonogram, with the caption, “Off to Amsterdam and I already miss my girls.”


Madison later confirmed the news to 'People', but refused to reveal what she plans to name her daughter, other than to say she didn't like "common names" and to expect a name that was, quote, "kind of Apple-ish."

CONCERT-GOERS UNAHPPY ABOUT MADONNA’S USE OF GUNS: Even though guns are obviously a sensitive topic in Colorado ever since the shooting in an Aurora movie theatre in July left 12 people dead, MADONNA did not remove the fake guns from her show when she performed in Denver  -- just 15 miles away from where the movie theater massacre happened. What, you're surprised?

A local TV station reported that "several fans walked out" when she pulled out the guns, but Madonna's rep says she couldn't  remove that "scene" from her show because it would be "like taking out the third act of 'Hamlet'."
