OTTAWA, Canada – May 2 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — When pop-star icon Britney Spears recently confirmed her much-rumored pregnancy, it was inevitable that controversial media attention would soon follow. Now her alleged pregnancy test has been sold by a Canadian radio station to none other than, the Internet casino most famous for their outrageous eBay purchases over the last few months.

Ottawa’s #1 Hit Music Station, The New Hot 89.9, scored the pregnancy test through a connection they have in the Los Angeles hotel where Britney and her husband Kevin Federline were staying a couple of months ago. The positive test was found in the trash can of the happy couple’s bathroom then sold to The Morning Hot Tub with Mauler, Rush, Laura & Josie. Although the station has had the test for a while now, they wanted to wait until the official announcement had been made by Mr. and Mrs. Spears.

Like many of the eccentric items the casino has bought, proceeds from this sale will go to charity. The two charities that will benefit are the Candlelighters Childhood Cancer Foundation which provides support to children with cancer and their families, and the Easter Seal Society which helps children with physical disabilities achieve their full individual potential and future independence.

“Although we love being in the headlines, we also jump at any opportunity to help out needy charities,” said CEO Richard Rowe. “This way, everybody wins and the money goes where it is needed. We are very pleased that the Candlelighters Foundation and the Easter Seal Society will benefit from this sale.”

“It’s great that took the pregnancy test off our hands,” said radio personality Jeff Mauler. “Not only are they helping out a couple of deserving charities, but they are also getting the pee out of our station. That’s always a good thing.”
