I assumed that the photos of Britney Spears, Kevin Federline and their son Sean Preston on vacation recently published by US Weekly were completely legit because one, they bought them from a photo agency, and two, because US Weekly would know better to publish photos that have questionable origin.

However, BBC’s News web site is reporting that Britney is "outraged and saddened" that these photos were published. Jive, her record label, released a statement that the photos were stolen by an unknown perpetrator" and that they were published without Brit and K-Fed’s "knowledge or consent."

When we first reported on the publication of the photos last week, we asked if you thought the rumor the photos were stolen was true. Almost 2,000 readers responded, and of those only 10% believed the photos were stolen.
