This is a little freaky.
When I first started this blog, back in November of 2005, I was in contact with an Idol auditioner named Miranda Tozier-Robbins who had made it in front of the judges at the Season 5 Boston auditions. She blogged about her experiences HERE.
She had some interesting inside info, so I linked to her blog and featured her in a couple of posts. Later, she friended me on My Space. Once in a while I’d get a message from her–at one point she was attending a film and visual arts school near where I live–but no major contact.
Last week she sent me a message, said she was on a “paparazzi gig” and wondered if I had any contacts to Britney Spears.
“I live in L.A and am planning a stake out at Britney Spears’ crib. Britney or no Britney we are throwing a party in the back of her pool, ” she wrote.
Not sure why, but Miranda thought I might have contacts who could pass on Britney’s itinerary for the next few days.
“Britney showing up or not showing up at her crib Tuesday night/Wednesday…there’s a party in the back of her crib…” she added.
And after cautioning me to keep the info on the QT, she wrote, “It will be on You Tube soon enough…”
So, imagine my surprise when I found this tonight while surfing the web:
A camouflage-clad woman was arrested for trespassing Thursday morning after allegedly sneaking into Britney Spears’ gated community and peeking through the windows of the singer’s Calabasas, Calif., home, E! News has confirmed.
According to the Malibu/Lost Hills Station, an L.A. County Sheriff’s deputy arrested 26-year-old Miranda Tozier-Robbins on suspicion of trespassing and disorderly conduct after security guards spied her peeping into Spears’ abode.
After realizing, “Hey, that isn’t the window washer, ” one of the private guards asked her to leave the prestigious Oaks neighborhood. When she seemed reluctant to do so, they physically escorted her off the property and called the cops.
While originally held on $5, 000 bail, Tozier-Robbins, was released after agreeing to appear June 16 in a Malibu court.
I didn’t think much about it when Miranda initially contacted me. It sounded like one of her film-school projects. I think she was hoping to capture some footage for a video that would hopefully go viral on You Tube.
Not sure why she thought trespassing would be a good idea. Not smart. I wonder how she even managed to get on her property…
