The Brits take place tomorrow at Earl's Court. Today's Brits news is that Robbie Williams, who is due to perform 'Angels' at the awards, doesn't want Pete Doherty turning up and stripping him of the limelight. Tough titty, Williams.
NEWSFLASH: The above might not quite be true. Williams' lawyers have been on to the red-top rag that originally published the Williams vs Doherty story, and they're not happy.
The paper is guilty, apparently, of "grossly offensive and defamatory allegations against Robbie Williams [which] are completely untrue".
A statement reads: "Our client has not sought to have Pete Doherty removed from the guest list or banned from attending the Brit awards. He has made no threat not to appear or perform.
"He has not sought to impose any conditions concerning Pete Doherty. Our client is not unsympathetic in his attitude to any problems Pete Doherty has with drug or alcohol addiction."
