I can see the tabloid headline now: " George Clooney Rides to Britney's Rescue!" But the fact is, the gentleman-slash-heartthrob has gone on the record as sympathizing with the Mother of the Year. "You look at the footage of Britney running the red light [and see] eight guys with cameras at night in the middle of the street," he told Tuesday's ET. "[It's] illegal. It's high-speed chases."

In other Britnews:
" Kevin Federline's attorney tells Us his client is unfazed by reports that Spears has hired a private dick to dig up dirt on him: "If that is what they need to do or have to do, have at it. I don't think it will, in any way, be a good expenditure of funds."
" Same lawyer also says that although Kevin has the kids on Thursday, "I'm sure [some Thanksgiving time with Mom] will be worked out in a way that makes sense." - Ben Katner
