Even though they were seen spending the night together at a hotel on Thursday and the same the night before, player/illusionist Criss Angel is insisting that his relationship with Britney Spears is purely platonic and that he's only helping her with a "planned" MTV VMA performance.
Angel tells People:
"It's amazing what people think. We're not together. Her manager is my manager, and I'm helping with one of her shows. I'm helping with her appearance on MTV. Yes, I'm here working on some stuff, and we went to that restaurant with 10 people. We were talking about how she wants to do something more with the [awards] show, and about me helping out and hoping to work with her on doing something to make her MTV appearance more innovative. It's amazing how you can't do anything now without people making up stuff."
If Criss pulls a VMA performance out of Brit Brit, it'd be a miracle!
He's more likely to pull a couple of used condoms and some lollipops.
