Hart on Spears at Oz Comic Con

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

SAB­RINA The Teenage Witch star Melissa Joan Hart dished to fans on the week­end about her work­ing re­la­tion­ship with an “over­worked” Brit­ney Spears in the 1990s.

The tele­vi­sion star was in Perth for Oz Comic Con and of­fered the story af­ter a fan asked if she was still friends with the pop princess.

“We were friends at the time; she was about 17 and I was about 22 when she came to visit the set,” Hart said.

“It was around the time we did Drive Me Crazy, which was ac­tu­ally called Next To You... I could tell she was over­worked. She had this huge en­tourage, body­guards, as­sis­tants, train­ers, sing­ing coaches, agents and man­agers.

“And I’d be like ‘you wanna go to lunch?’ and she’d be like ‘oh can I go to lunch?’ and she’d turn to her as­sis­tant and they’d be like ‘nope, we’ve gotta go to do a com­mer­cial then you’ve got dance train­ing then you’re on a plane tonight’. We lost touch and didn’t see each other ba­si­cally since we both had kids, but I ran into her last year in Ve­gas and I got to see her back­stage for five min­utes and say hi.”
