If you can't beat 'em... sleep with 'em!
That, apparently, was Britney Spears' mantra for 2008, at least regarding the celebrity photo agency personnel who follow her every move.
Just before Christmas, Britney checked into a hotel with Adnan Ghalib, a celebrity gossip photographer who she befriended at some point recently.
Then, two days ago, Britney Spears and Adnan Ghalib spent New Year's together - with her boys, Sean Preston and Jayden James, and the court-appointed monitor who must be present when Britney has the kids, of course.
Adnan Ghalib: Britney Spears' celebrity photo agency pal... and more?
The incredibly bizarre quintet reportedly spent the night chillin' at a "private beach front residence near Dana Point," according to celebrity news outlets.
Most people seem to think Adnan Ghalib and Britney Spears are just friends, but we can't help but wonder what a celebrity gossip cameraman and a walking train wreck do in a Beverly Hills hotel or beachfront pad at all hours. Talk? Watch TV?
