WorldOfBritney ClosingDecember 28, 2006
Ruben, the webmaster of worldofbritney.com has decided to shut down “WoB” for good. Ruben issued a press release statement that said he has lost passion for the site: I think that WoB has had its run…….its feet are not holding firm anymore, not because of my ability to run it, but because I believe Britney is unfortunately done (for me at least).
Ruben ran the site for more than 6 years with thousands of visits each day. Ruben continues to say that he is not closing because of Britney’s latest nudey pictures taken by the paparazzi (as Perez Hilton stated on his blog): The decision behind shutting down the site had NOTHING to do with Britney’s crotch shots and the way you played it this time was outright low. It’s simply time for me to move on and the reasons are different from what you claim them to be. I still and will always RESPECT BRITNEY as a human being, we are just choosing to not go on with this site.
I wish the best of luck to Ruben and his new blog. Ruben is not only an affiliate, but a mentor and friend and I look up to him greatly. Which brings me to my next statement…
The baton has been passed. It’s gotta be hard to be the number one Britney site, but somebody’s got to do it.
