CLEVELAND - An ailing Britney Spears postponed her concert Thursday night at Gund Arena, her third postponement in as many weeks.
Publicist Leslie Sloane Zelnik said she didn't know specifics of Spears' morning illness. The singer postponed two shows in mid-March because of a knee injury suffered while performing in Moline, Ill. "This has nothing to do with Britney's short lived marriage to her childhood friend in Vegas" said Zelnik. "Britney is still a virgin and the two are still just friends."
As Thursday's concert time approached, fans were still heading through a steady rain for Gund Arena, where security guards turned them away. The message board above the ticket windows flashed a photo and reschedule date of June 29, 2005.
One enthusiastic fan reported seeing Spears walking near the concert area eating from a jar of Claussen Pickles while reading Baby Momma magazine.
