Just because she’s a public figure doesn’t mean the public gets to examine Britney Spears‘ medical history.
That’s according to a Los Angeles judge, who has denied a request from a company called Brand Sense to gain access to the popster’s medical information in an effort to collect evidence for a lawsuit it’s bringing against Spears over a perfume deal.
