PITY THAT SUSPECTED HOAXSTER Jonathan Lee Riches doesn’t devote himself to fiction: Britney Spears’ wannabe lover apparently has a wild imagination.
Riches is accused of filing a lawsuit against The X Factor judge claiming to be Kevin Federline’s brother Christopher and alleging that he fathered her son Sean Preston while she was married
to K-Fed. Riches also claimed that BritBit illegally charged $4,500 on his credit card and then mocked his “small penis” when he confronted her about the crime.
Riches spent a decade in federal prison for conspiracy and wire fraud convictions, TSG reports. He was released on probation in April and was living in West Chester, Pa., with orders to not leave the area without permission from the court. But Riches was rearrested last week after traveling to Newtown, Mass. and posing as the uncle of mass shooter Adam Lanza.
Among Riches’ previous wild court allegations: he was the cousin of Angelina Jolie who sued Brad Pitt and John Travolta for assaulting him, and he was the father of Selena Gomez who accused Justin Bieber of stealing his credit card to pay for a penis enlargement.
What is clear: the hoaxster uses these fictitious claims to enlarge his own importance.
Online tabloids TMZ and RadarOnline both fell prey to Riches’ outrageously amusing lawsuits, points out. “Remarkably, the site even quoted an ‘insider’ who claimed that ‘Chris says the fling was a mistake. He says he always felt bad about it and kept it to himself because he didn’t want Alisha, his wife at the time, to find out. ‘”
Kevin Federline’s aunt Diane Story told Celebuzz that the family “pities” Riches for concocting such a “crazy story.”
“Britney is immune because of the love this country has for her,” Story said, adding “Kevin and Chris are close and will always be.”
