Jason Filyaw? He's the guitarist in a band called Riva. Possible love interest of Ms. Britney Spears. At one time, at least.

Aside from die-hard fans of his band, RIVA, few people know Jason Filyaw all that well. That's why The Gossip is proud to bring you a new Jason Filyaw picture sent to us by a fan - looks like he rocks out pretty darn hard!

Whether or not Jason Filyaw and Britney Spears are romantically involved or just friends remains to be seen, but TMZ has talked to Filyaw and confirmed a relationship of some sorts between the two, who originally met back in 2003.

Sources say they've recently reconnected and gotten closer - so much so that Britney Spears calls him constantly? The photo at right has surfaced of a woman resembling the troubled star making a phone call at a gas station.

Hitting up gas stations and fast food joints is definitely one of Spears' top pastimes (minus assaulting photographers, of course) and she's allowed to leave rehab for AA meetings and such. But we can't tell if it's her. What do you think?

Britney Spears' newest rumored man admits that he and the pop princess have been "growing very close" since their "special" rehab relationship began, and even used the L-word to descibe his feelings for her.

Jason Filyaw spoke exclusively to our counterparts at TMZ, so we're now considering his connection to Britney at least semi-credible.

What's That?

Filyaw, who describes himself as "very spiritual," would neither confirm nor deny that he is dating the star or if he has seen Britney Spears nude. But he admitted the following:

"I love her, I support her 100 percent and we are close."

Aw, shucks. Jason Filyaw has been attending AA meetings with Spears and revealed that he is helping Britney with the spiritually - or the "deep" part of her recovery.

The 33-year-old lead guitarist for the rock band RIVA says he met Spears long before she started rehab at Promises, and that they go "way back" to 2003, when he recorded some tunes with Britney at The Hit Factory in New York.

In the Britney timeline, that's prior to her marriage to Jason Alexander, and right around the time she was reportedly getting her yard stomped by Columbus Short.

Filyaw claims they stayed in touch ever since, but "a few weeks ago ... we met up again at a Los Angeles AA meeting."

Love is in the air at the detox facility, people.

Not everyone's as infatuated with Britney these days, though. The rehabbing train wreck may not be wasted off alcohol and drugs, but she's been popping up to a case of Coke (the soft drink) every day at Promises, and all that caffeine is making her a handful to deal with.

"She's been very demanding ... refuses to pick up after herself and even asked if she could hire a maid," says a Star Magazine source.

Oh well. At least Brit has a nice new man, with Isaac Cohen out of the picture.

Has Britney Spears found love... in rehab!?

Hard as it may seem to believe (and we don't), some gossip publications are reporting just that. Britney Spears supposedly met Jason Filyaw (pictured) at an AA meeting this past week.

One More Time!

The 33-year-old is, according to his MySpace page, lead guitarist of a band called Riva.

Since meeting Jason Filyaw, Britney Spears apparently calls him constantly and her pet names for him include Mr. Secret Underground Guy and J-Sun.

Who can blame Mr. Filyaw for falling head over heels for the gal. Everyone loves an insane, bulimic chick with two kid, two ex-husbands and a shaved head.

A source, who is definitely not made up, says:

"Britney adores Jason. He's been a tower of strength for her at the lowest point in her life. She's convinced Jason can help while she's in rehab because, as an alcoholic, he's been through the same thing."

She's supposedly so serious about him that sources are saying she plans to move him into her house once she gets out of rehab.

Doubtful. Tower of strength? This clown is in rehab too! Never mind the fact that one of the primary rules of any rehab is celibacy. Come on. This guy clearly doesn't have what it takes to be the next Isaac Cohen.

In other Britney Spears news, London's The Sun is reporting that she's planning to leave rehab two-days early - to attend Kevin Federline's birthday bash.

Her family, everyone at Promises and probably even Jayden James wants her to stay, but she insists she'll be fine. We all know how this is gonna go.
