Amanda Alexander - sister of Britney SPEARS' first husband Jason Alexander, who was married to the pop superstar for just 55 hours in 2004 - says she has seen the ‘Toxic’ singer taking the drugs. Amanda, who claims she witnessed Britney taking cocaine in their hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana, told In Touch Weekly magazine: ‘When I was around her, she took ecstasy.’ Another acquaintance of Britney’s from Kentwood, Kent Smith, said: ‘I’ve known Britney at least 10 years. We partied at Club 360 in New Orleans three years ago. She does like to party. I’ve been there when she’s done ecstasy and cocaine.’ Sources also allege Britney’s drug use caused her split from husband Kevin Federline. Their marriage ended shortly after they were seen having a huge row on Halloween (31.10.06), the night his debut album was launched.A source said: ‘Kevin was mad because he knew she was high on coke.’ Kevin has now demanded an emergency custody hearing to decide who will get guardianship of the couple’s two sons - 17-month-old Sean Preston and five-month-old Jayden James.

NBC announced today that "Access Hollywood's" Nancy O'Dell will host next month's Miss USA Pageant, but if it had gone Donald Trump's way, that wouldn't be the case.A source tells TMZ that the enigmatic real estate mogul wanted to drop O'Dell as host because he doesn't like the way pregnant women look. But it's not The Donald's call: O'Dell is under contract with NBC and is the host of the "Access Hollywood" (which is syndicated on many NBC stations), and she will also be fronting the network's Oscar coverage this weekend. The lesson here: Don't pick on the Peacock's golden girl, Donald!What was particularly troubling to O'Dell, our source says, is that the Miss USA Pageant is supposed to embody more than just how a woman looks in a bikini. It's safe to say that O'Dell, who will be six-months pregnant when the pageant airs, won't be sporting a two-piece.Trump's camp had no comment. (SOURCE TMZ)
