Reported Demo of Britney Spears Singing Lady Gaga's "Telephone" Leaks

According to rumors, Lady Gaga initially wrote her hit "Telephone" for pop tartlet Britney Spears, before Spears became a D-lister at best. Brit Brit was once famous, but it's been so long since she was K Fed's baby mama that we've sort of forgotten about her. While Brit never recorded a finished version of the song, a purported demo leaked over the weekend, in which Spears attempts to sing the song. Whoa! Gaga writing for Britney and then effectively taking her place at the top of the pop star food chain? Damn! They're in the jungle baby. They're gonna diiiiie!
The suspicious demo made the rounds at ileaks.com and is said to be quite similar to Gaga's smash hit version, auto-tuner and all. Granted, it's just an unfinished demo, but still. Neither Spears nor Gaga has commented on the track or its authenticity.
Have you heard the demo? Do you think it's Britney taking a stab at the song long ago? Or is this conjecture too far out there to be believed? I heard a bit on The Howard Stern Show and I could go either way. It sounds a bit like Brit, but it could be anyone. Who would win in a fight? Gaga or Brit Brit?
