While Britney Spears was being given props at a luncheon for being Cosmopolitan magazine's Fun Fearless Female, little did she know that a trespasser was on her Hollywood Hills property. Security guards say they caught the unidentified man yesterday while Britney was in New York receiving her award. L.A. police have said that the guards let the trespasser go and didn't file charges against him.
