Move over, Reg Jones. You are so 1996. This is 2007.
Britney Spears reportedly went out for a late night dinner on Tuesday night to Mirabella restaurant in Los Angeles... to visit her (gasp!) new boyfriend!
His name, according to Life & Style: Michael Marchand.
The magazine claims the two have been quietly dating for a few weeks and are slowly going public. We're not sure when the last time Britney Spears did anything quietly was, but maybe this Michael Marchand story is legit.
An eyewitness tells Life & Style:
"Michael Marchand came a little after midnight, and Britney Spears came in right after. They were being discreet. Forty-five minutes later, they left the restaurant together. He was charming. He made Britney laugh and looked at her with this secret smile. They left in separate cars."
Is Michael Marchand Britney Spears' boy toy of the week?
Apparently Britney "instantly fell" for Marchand at Mirabella when she ate there in early November. Say the source close to the waiter: "Their chemistry was immediate. He's very turned on by her."
Aren't we all, Michael Marchand. Aren't we all.
Since then, the two have had at least one date at Britney Spears' mansion. "They're always texting each other," says the insider.
Maybe it was this guy she was texting last week ... while driving!
When Life & Style asked him about their romance, he said, smiling, "I can't talk about that right now." Your 15 minutes have begun, sir.
