Britney Spears' will lose her headlining slot at the launch of America's NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE (NFL) season if she fails to curtail her hard-partying ways.

According to the PAGESIX website, the NFL has asked the OOPS!... I DID IT AGAIN beauty to play a concert in Washington DC, in September (03) to kick off the new season, but they are now threatening to drop Spears from the line-up, following reports of her frequently partying and smoking at New York hotspots.

An insider says, "They called her manager and said if she didn't settle down, she was not going to be the headliner. They don't want anyone associated with any kind of scandal."

But a source close to Spears insists the NFL made no such threat, and vows, "Britney will be the headliner."
