There's been a rumor floating around all week that claimed Britney Spears was leaving label RCA for Columbia Records. It appears the chatter was started by a Twitter user who claimed a source via The Hollywood Reporter website had inside information about the Glory singer's plans to exit. "Obviously, they [Columbia Records] will pay the millionaire fine for breach of contract," they said.
The buzz gained traction after an editor at Forbes added fuel to the fire. Then fans speculated the U.K. branch of the RCA website removed the princess of pop from their roster.

That's a lot to take in, but it's false. All of it.
Britney's longtime manager, Larry Rudolph, tells BreatheHeavy.com:
"There is no truth whatsoever to this rumor."
Looks like the Internet will have to go back to creating cat memes and gawking at #Jelena pictures for the foreseeable future. Britney is staying put at RCA.
