There's nothing salacious about the trip, however. The singer's father, Jamie Spears, and Gibson's wife, Robin, will also be there.

"They're just going away for a few days to relax," says a source.

The group plans to stay at the home the Gibsons own in Costa Rica, and are planning on returning to California early next week.

Britney Spears and Mel Gibson have more in common than fame and vehicular troubles - they're going on vacation to Costa Rica together!

The unlikely pair were first spotted together back in mid-March when they dined at Russian restaurant Romanov in Studio City, Ca.

But it wasn't their first meeting.

Mel Gibson, Britney Spears and their respective families met a number of times after the pop star was hospitalized in February.

"Mel and his wife Robin clearly saw a woman in crisis and wanted to extend themselves in any way possible," a source said.

They used to be neighbors when the singer lived in Malibu.

"There are no expectations, there is no agenda," the source said. "This is simply an act of human kindness. One neighbor reaching out to the other."

Someone we don't foresee Britney's current neighbor, George Clooney, making similar overtures after the chaos earlier this year.
