Organizers of this past weekends Teen Choice Awards reportedly were angered by the Pop Tarts refusal to remove her chewing gum before going onstage.
One awards show insider says the producers asked her to spit out her gum but she refused.
Then she introduced hubby Kevin Federline while chawing on her Chiclet like a cow on its cud.
And thats bad manners according to Simone Silvestri, an etiquette expert in Waterford, Michigan.
She says people who chew gum should make sure its not visible and audible smacking is a no-no as well.
Also, Silvestri says gum should never be chewed during an important occasion, such as a business meeting or an awards show presentation.
