Spears pulls out of Danish-furniture deal

Britney Spears has pulled out of a deal to become the face of a Danish furniture brand, according to reports.

The pop superstar had planned to endorse a range by Danish designer Claus Hjelmback, of the Scandinavian Style Mansion in Los Angeles.

The owner of the California establishment reportedly paid the star an estimated $1m US (€643,000) to celebrate her 26th birthday at his private residence last December.

The 'Toxic 'hitmaker was allegedly going to create her own signature piece called Woofy, which was to be priced at $200 (€129).

A source tells the New York Post: "It was a plastic dog that retails for over $200 and hides electrical wires in your home.

"Britney wanted to do a pink-and-blue Woofy."

However, the troubled star's father Jamie - who is currently managing her legal and financial affairs - is said to have vetoed the idea altogether.
