When the Pop Princess should have been the Pump Princess!
When it comes to gas prices, everyone is feeling it at the pump. Whether you are spending five, six, seven dollars or more a gallon, it is likely that the last thing you want to do is go to a gas station and spend money to fill your tank.
But if you abide by that rule for yourself, you might get yourself in the same situation Britney Spears got herself into on the freeways of Los Angeles.
Britney Spears Has Had Trouble With Speeding On California Freeways
Before her most recent episode running out of gas and having to deal with cops, when Britney is behind the wheel and the car is moving, it seems to be moving fast. There seems to be many incidents from her recent past that has put her driving record into question. Back on March 10th, 2022, The Blast revealed EXCLUSIVELY that Spears got a ticket for speeding. According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the ‘Toxic’ singer was busted by the California Highway Patrol for driving at an “unsafe speed for prevailing conditions.” Then back in 2021, she was pulled over by CHP for going 62 MPH in a 40MPH zone. She was left with a verbal warning that time. But it doesn’t end there.
In another traffic stop, in June of 2019, Britney was busted by the Ventura County Sheriff’s Department for the same issue, “unsafe speed.” And let us not forget in 2006 where she was photographed driving with her four-month-old son on her lap.
Now the reason she might be having these incidents is because while she was under her conservatorship, her driving privileges were controlled as she claimed a security guard in most cases would drive her around. She revealed in a Instagram post that she was loving to be able to drive again, but it has been awhile as she stated, “In a world where it’s acceptable to make a strong woman feel like a hopeless old woman, letting her drive alone for the first time in 13 years… I gotta say, y’all, I’m forever grateful,” she wrote. During the ongoing conservatorship hearings, a source close to the pop star added, “Britney is very happy the conservatorship is now allowing her to drive. She is ecstatic and beyond grateful for all the help she is receiving right now.”
Though being ecstatic and grateful, she also might want to start going to the gas station to fill up, because her latest incident, she is very lucky because things could of ended up very badly.
Britney Spears Runs Out Of Gas On Highway – Cops Called To Help
When it comes to LA traffic, everyday is a struggle and most of the time you aren’t moving on any of the roads. Britney Spears ended up making that a guarantee for herself as TMZ reports that cops had to be called on Tuesday, July 12th around 10PM as her white Mercedes was out of gas and was blocking those traveling on the third lane southbound on the 101, just north of Balboa Blvd. Not exactly the situation anyone wants to be in as it can be extremely dangerous.
As officers got to the scene, they found Britney seated safely in the backseat of a passerby’s vehicle, we are not sure if the passerby was a big Britney Spears fan, but it likely gives them a story to tell forever.
The Blast reached out to Britney’s reps for more to make sure all is well, we have yet to get a response.
