WOW! We absolutely ADORE this!
We're not sure if it's the new BF, the brown hair, or the Vegas residency deal, but whatever the reason may be, we haven't seen Britney Spears acting this much like her old self in a seriously long time!
ESPECIALLY after you hear this!
According to reports, the pop starlet was on her way in to an El Lay pharmacy when she overheard a homeless man by the door begging for change, and immediately went to a nearby ATM and withdrew $100 just to give to him!
Isn't that just so unbelievably compassionate?
Apparently, however, the sentimental moment quickly turned into a HIGHlarious miscommunication, as the man was so overtaken with gratitude that he startled her and caused her to scream by picking her up in a big bear hug, prompting security to confuse the situation for a robbery!
“The store’s security guard came running and snatched the money out of the guy’s hand, shooing him away. But Britney said, ‘No!…No! Give this man his money back! I gave it to him!’ She’s often seen as a wacky diva, but most times her heart’s in the right place.”
Can U even imagine what this entire scenario must have been like for passersby?!
LOLz! It sounds AH-MAY-ZING!
But we're so happy to hear about our Brit Brit's supreme generosity! It sets such a good example for her boys!
We hope the bear hug didn't completely deter you from continuing these small, thoughtful acts of kindness! Ha!
