If her relationship with Adnan Ghalib doesn't work out, perhaps Britney Spears should go back to her innocent dating roots.

No, we're not referring to Justin Timberlake.

We're talking about Robbie Carrico. The former lead singer of awesomely named pop group Boyz N Girlz United used to date Britney, long before there was a K-Fed, Jayden James or Sean Preston.

Now - as Spears abandons her kids and buys pregnancy tests - Carrico is back in the spotlight on American Idol. Rumors about the show state that he gets a ticket stamped for Hollywood either this week or next.

Robbie Carrico and Britney Spears, back in the day. Way, way back in the day.

Britney Spears' new song is called "Piece of Me."

But the most popular show on television, at least, has no interest in any pieces of this ongoing train wreck.

Asked about having Spears on American Idol as a guest judge, producer Nigel Lythgoe told Us Weekly:

"I would have had Britney Spears last year when I thought she was trying to get it all back together again."

But what about now, Nigel?

"Britney, at this moment in time, I don't think is well enough to do anything," he said. "I think she needs looking after. I think she needs to pull herself together."

Fortunately, Sam Lufti and Alli Sims are in Britney's corner.

Her appearance at the MTV Video Music awards left Britney Spears' comeback up in the air. But the "star" seems intent on putting custody issues to rest.

Spears attended a meeting with Federline and his lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, Wednesday. The exes arrived at offices of Spears' attorney, Laura Wasser.

The meeting fell on son Jayden James' first birthday and five days before they are due to face each other before a family court judge on Monday.

The meeting was Britney Spears' idea, according to a source close to her.

"Britney asked for [the meeting]. She wants to put an end to this public debacle," says a Spears source. "However, Kevin [has] refused. He needs more money so he's determined to win this."

Court documents released August 30 show that Spears' income is an incredible $737,868 a month and that Kevin Federline receives $20,000 a month in spousal support, but has no "net income after business expenses."

A source close to FedEx confirmed the meeting, but said that Federline was not - as is speculated - drawing out the process due to financial self-interest.

"He's not going for additional child support in the court papers that were filed. It's not about the money," says the insider.

When asked if Britney Spears was hoping to settle, the Kevin Federline source retorted: "She might settle, she's got stage fright."

Britney Spears' Las Vegas weekend featured eight party-hopping nightclub excursions and one epically disastrous nationally televised dance number.

Could she have avoided sych public embarrassment? According to a report in the The New York Times, the singer's record label, Jive, was reluctant to put her on stage, until one of her lawyers, Gary Stiffelman, advised otherwise.

Meanwhile, American Idol, which specialize in turning embarrassments around, reportedly wants to do the same for Spears, according to FOX News.
