Wearing a black wig and dark sunglasses, Britney Spears ducked into a hotel in Palm Springs with celebrity news photographer Adnan Ghalib around 2 a.m. on January 2 - and then checked out promptly around 7 a.m.

Spears and Ghalib went to one of the $1,200-a-night-plus villas, with two other men - apparently her security guards - following right behind them.

Of course, this isn't the first time Spears has spent time in a hotel with Adnan Ghalib. They also spent New Year's together, and the day before Christmas.

While details vary, Spears certainly has some relationship with the photographer, who proclaimed to a tabloid in September, "I'll get her sooner or later."

Last week, Ghalib "comforted her" at the Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills. Adnan said at the time that he and Britney Spears are merely platonic, that "we are just friends. She was just a little upset, pretty much about everything."

Seen with Britney Spears, Adnan Ghalib declined comment on his rendezvous.

The photographer, who works for the agency Finalpixx, did tell ABC's 20/20 that he's made up to $200,000 a year taking Britney Spears photos.

He has also called the singer "awesome." He must not own her CDs.

"I think she's a great person," Adnan Ghalib said. "It's unfortunate that she's the way she is, because of the people she surrounds herself with."

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.

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?

Just when you think she has bottomed out, Britney Spears finds a way to take her love for attention from celebrity photo agencies to an entirely new level!

Spears reportedly spent parts of Saturday night and Sunday morning holed up in a Beverly Hills hotel room - along with a celebrity news photographer who regularly covers the troubled pop star. A paparazzi romance? Goodness, Britney.

According to reports, the pair was in Spears' room at the Peninsula Hotel until the early morning hours of Sunday. The celebrity photographer, whose name is Adnan Ghalib, departed the hotel at 6 a.m. Sources say Spears left around 9 a.m.

But when contacted by Us Weekly, the photographer denied a romance, saying, "We are just friends. She was just upset, pretty much about everything."

According to celebrity photo agency Splash News, the singer's "wild date" began Saturday night with Adnan Ghalib, who works for Finalpixx photo agency, handing Britney Spears his business card at a gas station after he heard she "liked" him.

Soon after getting Adnan Ghalib's card, Britney Spears contacted him and the pair was later spotted holding hands at a local supermarket.

"After discussing the possibility of him coming into her house she said that her house was too dirty and that she would rather go to a hotel," Splash reports.

"So they changed cars and she went back to her house to freshen up while Adnan parked down the road and waited. She then came out in her car and they left."

Britney was reportedly wearing a leopard print dress and ripped fishnet tights as they arrived at The Peninsula Hotel in Beverly Hills, hand in hand. Sexy!

As of Sunday afternoon, a source says Britney Spears back was at her Beverly Hills home with her two children, Sean Preston and Jayden James.
