Britney Spears will leave fans "shocked" by her latest interview, according to OK! magazine.

The troubled pop princess reportedly had a "meltdown" during a recent photo shoot with the celebrity magazine.

In a statement said to have been issued to entertainment gossip website TMZ, OK! editor-in-chief Sarah Ivens revealed: "OK! Magazine spent a heartbreaking day with Britney Spears and witnessed first-hand an emotional cry for help that will leave you shocked and sad.

"This week, on newsstands Friday, the truth will be told," she added.

Spears has yet to get her singing career back on track and has been the subject of intense media scrutiny following the bizarre behaviour she has demonstrated in the aftermath of her split from estranged husband, Kevin Federline.

This month the singer apologised for attacking a photographer's car with an umbrella, in an incident which took place in February, while she also shocked fans by shaving all her hair off earlier this year.

In the latest report of her antics, TMZ quotes sources who claim that Spears was "completely out of it" during her OK! shoot, which she reportedly arranged.

Warning that the photos from the shoot could "kill her career" if published, the sources also claim that the star ruined two designer dresses during the session. It is reported that she wiped greasy hands over one after eating fried chicken and spoiled another by using it to wipe up mess caused by her dog.

Meanwhile in further claims, so-called friends of Spears have told NW magazine that the singer is expecting her third child - but is unsure who the father is.

It remains to be seen how toxic the claims about Spears really are, or whether it will be a case of hit me baby one more time for the star.
