Britney Spears gossip

Britney Spears has been caught up in a controversial moment at church when a security guard pulled his gun on a photographer trying to take snaps of her.

Britney was attending a church service in Hollywood after checking out of rehab recently when the armed guard at the church pulled their guns on a member of the paparazzi and handcuffed the terrified snapper.

The guard allegedly accused the photographer of trying to run over a traffic policeman, but later released him.

A witness told the Daily Mail:

'When her 4X4 came out officers stopped the traffic, let her go ahead and held paparazzi back. One photographer tried to get past and suddenly two undercover security guards ran out into the street.

The witness added: 'The photographer looked terrified. It's not what you expect to see outside a church service.'

However, the church's executive director explained that the snapper was on the wrong side of the road and tried to run over an officer.

The guard, an undercover officer and retired policeman, then pulled the gun on him.

Yet another day in Britney's life.
