Britney facing harassment case

Britney Spears is being sued by a former bodyguard who claims the singer subjected him to "repeated unwanted sexual advances" and harassment.

Fernando Flores filed the sexual harassment lawsuit in suburban Los Angeles, alleging the singer intentionally inflicted emotional distress.

He is seeking unspecified damages from the Grammy Award-winner and his former employer, Advanced Security Concepts Corp.

The lawsuit claims that Britney, among other things, exposed herself to Flores and summoned him to her bedroom while she was naked.

The bodyguard's employment with the Toxic singer appeared to be brief - his court filings state he started working for her in February and had "exhausted his administrative remedies" with a state agency by July.

Britney's publicist has yet to comment on the case.

The singer remains under a court-ordered conservatorship in which her personal and financial affairs are controlled by her father and an attorney, and monitored by a judge. The conservatorship has prevented Britney from being deposed or testifying during previous cases in which she was sued.

The lawsuit was first reported by celebrity website TMZ.com.
