Britney Spears has banned two of her uncles from attending her lavish wedding in California this November (04) - because they have criminal records.

The ME AGAINST THE MUSIC beauty, 22, is determined nothing will ruin her romantic marriage to dancer Kevin Federline, so she's insisted the two relatives stay away.

WILLIAM SPEARS, the brother of Britney's dad JAMIE, brought shame on the family after being convicted of burglary and drug dealing in the family's native Louisiana. He was given the name ROADKILL WILLIE thanks to his penchant for scooping up dead animals from the road and cooking them for his tea, according to British newspaper the DAILY SPORT.

Another uncle - whose name hasn't been disclosed - has a criminal record which includes assault with a deadly weapon, drunk driving and wife beating.

However, those guests who do attend the ceremony will be in for a treat. Wedding planner YIFAT OREN is expected to spend roughly $3,600 (GBP2,000) per head on food and drink.
