The Federlines Respond

Britney and new hubby not faking it
Newlywed couple still haven't filed marriage license, however

... Turns out that Spears and Federline are not legally married because even though they have a marriage license, they haven’t yet filed it. They say they plan to file the license next week. As Federline explains it, after the couple hammered out their prenuptial agreement, the lawyers advised them to wait a week before filing the marriage license. But then they moved up the wedding date because they were tired of being stalked by photographers. “Basically, those reports that we didn’t legally wed are [bull],” Federline told People. “But it doesn’t bother me, those reports.”

“I know we’re not completely legal until we file the license, which we’ll do next week,” Spears told People. “But in a real sense, a spiritual sense, we’re married. We’re just following our lawyer’s advice.”

Regarding the reports that it was a fake marriage, she said, “I’m really upset that somebody some place decides to write a false headline about a special day that I’ve dreamed about since I was a little girl. It’s too bad. I don’t understand the thinking behind it."
