Spears Pulls Out Of Hotel Opening

Pop star BRITNEY SPEARS has snubbed the opening of her suite in the ONYX HOTEL in Boston to spend time with her new fiance KEVIN FEDERLINE.

KIMPTON HOTEL + RESTAURANT GROUP LLC executives were initially shocked when they heard Spears was planning to call her world tour the ONYX HOTEL TOUR - the same name they had chosen for their new Massachusetts boutique hotel, which opened in May (04).

But the bosses then spoke to Spears and decided to name a VIP suite after the star's charity THE BRITNEY SPEARS FOUNDATION ROOM, which will donate a percentage of the proceeds to send ill children to a performing arts camp.

At the official opening of the room on Tuesday (13JUL04), Spears' mother LYNNE will cut the ribbon, while Spears and Federline relax in Hawaii.
