Courteney Cox has defended her plan to use Britney Spears' recent troubles as the inspiration for a storyline in her hit show Dirt.
The actress intends to spoof Spears' problems in the FX drama, in which she plays the editor of a celebrity magazine.
The singer's high-profile divorce and custody battle with ex-husband Kevin Federline will provide inspiration for material in the second series, as well as her infamous hair-shaving incident.
A source said earlier this month: "Courteney can’t wait to give the Britney character a major smack-down on camera."
However, Cox denied that she intended to criticise Spears, saying: "This is not an attack on Britney. I am not out to offend anyone."
