In yet another bizarre turn in the Britney Spears saga, OK! has learned that the singer has called off auditions for backup dancers for the second day in a row. Her reason for today’s no-show? The flu.

“She’s telling people she’s come down with a stomach flu,” a source close to the “Toxic” singer reveals to OK!. But perhaps the real reason she called off yet another round of dancer auditions at the Millenium Dance Complex in North Hollywood is the fact that, of the thousands of talented high-kickers in the L.A. area, only 37 have even signed up to strut their stuff.

“To a lot of people, Britney is career poison right now,” one Hollywood insider tells OK!. “And if she’s cancelling auditions, why wouldn’t she cancel shows on a whim too?”
