Britney Spears divorce timing

November 8, 2006

By filing for divorce on Election Day, did Spears hope to bury the news? It appears from the court papers — widely available on the Internet as soon as the clerk’s stamp dried — that she was in a hurry. She faxed her signature to her attorneys in Los Angeles from New York. Perhaps she thought the world would be focused on something so meaningless as a national election, and not on the magnitude of her personal dramas.

When I first heard about the divorce, I assumed that the divorce papers were filed on election day on purpose in order to attract attention, because more people would be paying attention to the news that day.
