Hey, if you've got blood-sucking leeches like Sam Lutfi trying to control your daughter's money and mind, Adnan Ghalib must seem downright normal.
After her release from UCLA and its psychiatric ward, Britney Spears spent her first night at home with her mom, dad and Adnan.
Word has it that it was civil and everyone got along nicely.
"From what I was told, everything was very civilized," a source close to Adnan Ghalib, a celebrity photographer, told People.
After Spears' unexpected release from UCLA Wednesday, "Britney called Adnan to meet her at the Beverly Hills Hotel. He had been talking with [parents] Lynne and Jamie Spears for the past few days," says the source.
Britney and Adnan had a meeting with lawyer Adam Streisand, who announced Thursday that he is off the case. The pair then met up with Jamie and Lynne.
Adnan Ghalib also confirmed in a posting on his celebrity photo agency's website (FinalPixx.com) that he had been in contact with her parents.
"As the day unraveled, they have all agreed to get Britney safely back to her home so she can get the medical care and love that she deserves," says a posting on FinalPixx.com about Spears and Ghalib.
"After spending most of the evening with The Spears [family] ... Adnan left and went back home at 2:30 a.m. to give the family some alone time."
Adnan Ghalib, who began seeing Britney in December, is married to AzLynn Berry, but has been separated for a year and was just served with divorce papers.
Lynne Spears left her daughter's home just after midnight Thursday, while Jamie Spears remained there through Thursday morning.
The folks were reportedly frustrated by Britney's early release and their lack of ability to enforce the court-ordered conservatorship that lets them control her medical treatment, as well as her legal and financial decisions.
