Pop princess Britney Spears is refusing to sign a pre-nuptial agreement before she weds fiance Kevin Federline, because she's "marrying him for love and not money".

According to American website PAGESIX.COM, the singer's parents are begging her to agree to a pre-nup ahead of her planned November (04) wedding to dancer Federline - who, under California law, stands to win half her fortune if they divorce.

The website claims Spears, who is worth a reported $100 million (GBP55 million), had to buy her own $400,000 (GBP222,000) engagement ring and has put penniless Federline - who she has dated for just three months - on her payroll.

Spears' mum LYNNE is also reportedly upset with the singer, because she told her assistant about the engagement before her.

According to PageSix, Spears yelled at her mother, "This is my life, let me live it."
