Britney Spears' filmed scenes for Madonna's Sticky and Sweet tour could be cut out, it has emerged.
The 'Like a Virgin' singer and Spears recorded the scenes to be broadcast on huge screens.
But Madonna -- known to friends as Em -- "hates" the video and is thinking about getting rid of it altogether.
A source close to Madonna says, "Britney looks amazing in the video but Em watched it and told them to take it out because she hated it.
"It was a scene where Britney was pretending to rip her own hair out."
It was claimed earlier this week that Madonna is in "meltdown" mode and has been ordered to cut back her work schedule.
A source said, "Madonna is doing less than OK. She has been rehearsing for the tour and she is totally miserable.
"She's down physically and mentally. The situation with Guy is very, very tense. The way the press are going crazy with the A-Rod story, her brother's book and her physical exhaustion are all taking their toll.
"Family tension with her father and two of her other siblings has also been awkward.
"She feels nobody has taken her side. One of her closest pals says she has never seen Madonna so low. She has been feeling low and looking really gaunt.
"Madonna was told to go soft on work and rehearsals, so she will now take one proper day off every week and go easy in the mornings.
"She has a blood analysis done every few days — including one during last Friday's rehearsal in front of everyone."
