We all remember that moment in 2007 when Britney Spears had a meltdown and attacked a paparazzo with a green umbrella. She was deep into an extensive custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline and had recently shaved her own head at a salon in LA when a herd of photographers attacked her at a gas station. Clearly overwhelmed Britney targeted photographer Daniel Ramos’ Ford Explorer and dented it with a green umbrella. Now that umbrella can be yours.
He said “it was a bad moment in her life and unfortunately it was captured.” and told Broadly on February 21st, exactly 10 years after the incident, about the auction and that he plans to donate half of the proceeds to a charity of Britney’s choice.
In 2007, Britney opened up on her website: “I apologize to the pap for a stunt that was done 4 months ago regarding an umbrella. I was preparing my character for a role in a movie where the husband never plays his part so they switch places accidentally. I take all my roles very seriously and got a little carried away. Unfortunately, I didn’t get the part.”. After psychiatric treatment, Spears came back full power on the following year starring a Vegas residency show, despite the fact that her father, Jamie Spears, still runs her estate.
Britney Spears has not commented on the auction yet.
