Britney was causing controversy over the price of tickets for her lip-synced Circus concert before she even arrived in Australia, and now that she's there, the critics are getting even more vicious, causing Britney to become "extremely upset."
Australia's Daily Telegraph reports that Brit holed up in her Perth hotel after fans walked out on her "lackluster" performance over the weekend (a claim her promoter, Paul Dainty, flat-out denies.)
"Britney is aware of all this and she's extremely upset about it," Dainty told The Australian. "She's a human being," he continued. "I'm embarrassed, with such a big international entourage here with Britney, to be part of the Australian media when I see that kind of totally inaccurate reporting."
Fans have come to Brit's defense on her website, posting several messages of encouragement about her shows down under. Even John Mayer defended Brit, tweeting, "If you're shocked that Britney was lip-syncing at her concert and want your money back, life may continue to be hard for you."
Plus, she's got something to look forward to -- Brit's boys are reportedly set to join their mom down under!
Happy early birthday to her!
