Spears’ claim she was just drinking ginseng was backed up yesterday by Arif Alam, the clerk . . . who rang up Spears’ purchases on Monday afternoon. “She did not buy any alcohol at all – no alcohol!” Alam told The News. He insisted all Spears bought was a 10-milliliter bottle of Panax Red Ginseng Extractum for $1 and a can of Red Bull energy drink. After Spears and her fiancé, Kevin Federline, left the store, a swarm of paparazzi snapped the sexy singer tippling from the miniature bottle on the sidewalk in front of the store on Lincoln Blvd.
And speaking of Federline, plans are in the works for Britney to marry him in November at the Beverly Hills Hotel, reports indystar.com by way of IMDb. Sparing no expense for this once-in-a-lifetime experience, she intends to spend $1.8 million on the event, which will include 300 bottles of Cristal and $180,000-worth of white tulips imported from Amsterdam.
