LATEST: Britney Spears's spokeswoman has hit out at a fan who is selling chewing gum he claims was discarded by the pop superstar - branding his actions "pathetic".

LESLIE SLOANE-ZELNICK was horrified to hear a UK-based fan had put the unusual memorabilia up on internet site EBAY and has already attracted a number of bids.

And the TOXIC star's representative worries it marks a new low in the lengths people will go to in order to make money out of the world's obsession with celebrities.

Leslie fumes, "This is an all-time low.

"Anything is possible, I've come to realize, and I do think it's pathetic."
