Kevin Federline's Aunt Confirms Court Case Challenging Britney Spears' Son's Paternity Is a Hoax (EXCLUSIVE)
The aunt of Kevin Federline has confirmed the story regarding a bizarre restraining order against his ex, Britney Spears -- allegedly filed by her former brother-in-law -- is a hoax.
Diane Story told Celebuzz: "We pity the hoaxter for believing they could get by such a crazy story and for also believing,they could damage the reputation of America’s pop princess."
"Britney is immune because of the love this country has for her," she added.
When he confronted her about the theft, the "Oops I Did It Again" star allegedly made fun of him and told him he had a "small penis". The faux Federline also claimed to have slept with Spears during her marriage to his brother Kevin, fathering her eldest son Sean Preston, 7.
However, it emerged on Thursday that the lawsuit was the work of an impersonator who is a convicted felon.
Jonathan Lee Riches, the same fraudster who claimed he was the uncle of Sandy Hook Elementary school suspect Adam Lanza, was arrested recently on a federal probation violation charge, The Smoking Gun first reported.
He has filed hundreds of fatuous lawsuits that named a cavalcade of athletes, politicians, musicians, Hollywood stars and other public figures as defendants, it's alleged.
Two of those cases were filed by “Gino Romano” and named various members of the Kardashian family as defendants.
In the process, the judge appeared to debunk the claims from the fake "Christopher Federline" who attested, in documents tendered to the court: "I am the true father, but the public does not need to know."
Story -- who wrote 'Pop Baby Krissy Doucet,' which was inspired by her nephew's failed romance and marriage to Spears, 31 -- said her family feels ‘pity’ for the hoaxer.
"Despite the silly rumors, our family does respect each other and would never do such a hurtful thing to one or the other," Story told Celebuzz.
"Kevin and Chris are close and will always be."
