If you remember the infamous Britney Spears meltdown of 2008, then you might remember Adnan Ghalib - the British-born paparazzo and all around D-bag with whom Britney was romantically involved at the time.
Spears and Ghalib only dated briefly but it was quite the wild ride. After their breakup, Ghalib threatened to sell a Britney sex tape, and she ended up getting a restraining order against him.
Despite the scandalous nature of their relationship, Britney is rumored to be reaching out to Ghalib in the wake of her breakup of with David Lucado.
"They never really stopped talking," says a source close to Britney, adding that Spears and Ghalib cut off communication only briefly at the insistence of Lucado.
Britney is still bound a conservatorship which places her under her father Jamie's care, so she's reportedly been forced to communicate with Ghalib covertly.
"Jamie monitors Britney's cell phone, but she found a way to secretly text Adnan," says the insider.
While it's slightly ridiculous that a 32-year-old mother of two has to hide her flirtations from her father, in this case we hope for Spears' sake that Jamie's intervention is successful.
After all, it was her behavior while she was dating Ghalib that landed Brit under her dad's thumb in the first place.
