Pop princess BRITNEY SPEARS is now the proud owner of an old pair of jeans - which belonged to screen goddess MARILYN MONROE.
Fashion designer TOMMY HILFIGER handed over his prized possession after the singer spotted the historic denim at his New York office. Style expert Hilfiger insisted beautiful the sexy singer should take them, even though he'd splashed out $75,000 (£50,000) on them.
Last night (18MAR01) a pal claimed, "Britney was so pleased there were tears in her eyes." Britney has appeared in jeans adverts for her close friend Hilfiger. (RP/WNTSP/CPT)
