Jonas Akerlund: Britney Gave It Her All On HIAM Vid



Brian Friedman may be giving interviews left and right about Britney's epic dancing in her new Hold It Against Me music video, but TMZ sings a different tune.

Multiple sources on the video set tell TMZ Jonas Akerlund was "upset" Britney hadn't rehearsed her dance routine and wanted her dance double, Allison Kyler, to fill in.

Several sources connected with the production told TMZ a similar story, though team Britney denies it. A rep for Britney tells TMZ, "The accusations could not be further from the truth. Britney worked extremely hard on this video and rehearsed for six weeks prior to shooting." The rep adds ... Brit and Jonas got along great, and "Fans will immediately see how inaccurate these claims are once they see the video."

Jonas tells TMZ, "[Britney's] been great throughout the entire process. At the end of the shoot I got the warmest hug I ever got from an artist, and I look forward to hugging her again very soon!"

"I've been around long enough to know when an artist gives it their all, and to me It doesn't get better than this."

Jonas says, "This video is gonna be fucking awesome. It's all Britney."
