Britney Spears is staying in the US

Britney Spears has had to dramatically pull out of her stage comeback at the MTV European Music Awards in Liverpool on Thursday.

The superstar, who's just released new single Womanizer, was supposed to be doing a surprise performance at the prestigious awards bash.

Britney is gutted but she has family commitments,' a source tells Now Online.

'Due to the ongoing court case involving her sons, Britney has to remain in the US to show she’s available for her kids as often as possible, and she has to be around this week!’

The mum-of-two, 26 - who had sons Sean Preston, 3, and Jayden James, 2, with ex-husband Kevin Federline – is due to appear on The X Factor at the end of November.

All of the divas – Britney, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera and Leona Lewis released singles on Monday.
