Pop princess Britney Spears has blasted reports she is in rehab being treated for alcohol abuse.

A British newspaper this week (12JAN04) claimed the release of the singer's new album had been postponed so Britney could seek counselling for her alcohol consumption.

But a spokesperson for Britney - who earlier this month (JAN04) married childhood pal JASON ALEXANDER - insist the rumours are totally false.

Her publicist NICOLE KING says, "I don't know where the information came from.

"Britney has not entered rehab and it simply isn't true. It's a load of rubbish."
