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.
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.
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.
