Pop beauty Britney Spears is fighting against false tabloid rumours about herself by launching a reality TV show documenting her relationship with husband KEVIN FEDERLINE - to show her fans the truth.

American TV network UPN have bought six episodes of the untitled series, which consists of videotape footage shot by the TOXIC star and Federline, which tells the story of their courtship, engagement and wedding.

The golden couple will executive produce and host the show, by providing voice-over material explaining what's happening in each half-hour episode and the hour-long finale focusing on their surprise 18 September (04) wedding day.

Spears explains, "From the day that Kevin and I met, there have been constant rumours and inaccurate speculation about our lives together. I feel that last year the tabloids ran my life and I am really excited about showing my fans what really happened rather than all the stories, which have been misconstrued by journalists in the past.

"As I mentioned before, I am now going to be expressing my personal life through art."

Federline adds, "It is a documentation of love."

UPN Entertainment spokeswoman DAWN OSTROFF says, "The skein will give Spears and Federline the chance to tell their love story their way. They'll tell viewers, 'This is when we first met,' or 'This is when we started dating.'

"I don't think there's anything sugar-coated about this. It's pretty raw and pretty real. I don't think (viewers) have ever been exposed to people being so honest and open about their lives."

VIACOM music channels MTV and VH1 are planning to re-run the show after the UPN premiere of the eagerly-awaited programme next month (MAY05).
