Throwing up over a Gucci dress cost Britney Spears £10,000 during her ill-fated photo shoot, reports claim.

Britney was supposed to be attending a photo shoot for OK! magazine but was "babbling incoherently" and "talking in baby talk" before wiping her hands - which were covered in grease from a fried chicken meal - down a designer dress.

A source told the Sun: "She went to the toilet and when she came back she couldn't continue with the interview.

"Her eyes were rolling back, she was talking nonsense. She ate some food and vomited over her Gucci dress. She was a mess."

The final bill for the session came to £10,307, including £2,715 for a ruined Versace gown.

Britney had intended the interview and photo shoot to be a springboard for a career comeback, but the magazine has now said it will not be publishing the photos as they were so bad they could "kill her career", according to reports.

OK! editor-in-chief Sarah Ivens said: "I've never seen anything like it," adding, "It's definitely the most bizarre shoot I've ever been on."
