Actor Columbus Short is alleging that the parents of pop icon Britney Spears once called him the n-word.
The actor was a guest on Inside Hollywood, where he recalled the incident. "I wasn't shocked when it happened. Look where they're from … they're from Louisiana. The way it came out was so effortless, like that's how they speak," said Short. "I wasn't shocked and I wasn't hurt by it, I was just like, 'Wow, this is, okay, I know who I am around here.'... Because they have Black bodyguards doesn't mean behind closed doors they don't use that word."

The actor previously detailed the incident in his memoir. He says he once bedded the singer as well.
"I was next to [Britney] while she was on the phone with them crying while she had it on speaker." Short then says that he heard someone on the line say, "Why are you f*king that n*gger?"
He said, "Britney looked at me so apologetically, knowing I'd heard it. I shook my head and didn't say anything, because what was there to say?"
