Meanwhile, Adnan Ghalib spoke out to Entertainment Tonight about meeting Spears for the first time.

“I believe it was December 20, and there was an aggressive chase and at a stop light in Hollywood, she got out of her car and got into mine, and I think that’s what made the difference,” he said.

While Ghalib claims to ET that he is not being paid directly for conducting an interview about Spears, a source tells Usmagazine.com that his agency, FinalPixx, is brokering the deal and that Ghalib will receive a cut.

Britney Headed Back To Court; Kaplan Says She's 'Not The Enemy'

The following italicized article is from www.accesshollywood.com:

It appears Britney Spears will be in court tomorrow – at least according to her pal Sam Lutfi.

Sam has told Access Hollywood Brit will indeed head to court on Wednesday.

She will reportedly go before the judge to ask for her visitation rights to be restored with her two boys – Sean Preston and Jayden James.

No word yet on whether Kevin Federline will be present at the Wednesday hearing.

On Monday, Britney showed up for her scheduled deposition with Kevin’s attorney, Mark Vincent Kaplan. Accompanied by her lawyer, Tara Scott and Lutfi, Britney spent approximately two hours behind closed doors with Kaplan.

Following the deposition, Kaplan spoke with Access Hollywood about his session with the pop star.

“It's not a very enjoyable thing and nobody says, ‘God, I have nothing to do, let's go be deposed.’ But it was progress. It took a lot of time. It was slow going but hopefully there will be further sessions in order to complete what we have to discover,” Kaplan told Access.

And while Britney was at Kaplan’s offices for about two hours on Monday, the attorney told Access not all of that time was spent answering questions.

“I think there was probably about 45 minutes of actual cross-examination, which is better than fourteen minutes,” Kaplan noted, citing his last deposition with Britney, which she left after only 14 minutes.

Despite all her recent troubles and public exploits, Kevin’s camp is hopefully Britney will once again be part of her children’s lives.

“Well, that’s the hope and the expectation,” Kaplan revealed. “There are certain things that have to be done by her in order to make everyone comfortableĆ¢€¦ and to answer any unresolved questions so that we don't have to worry about anything that occurred a few weeks ago being something other than a [disgusting] eventĆ¢€¦ She is not the enemy. She is not being viewed as the enemy and what is being done, even though it may be unpopular with her, is to make sure that she can be a full participant going forward in the future.”

Last week, LA Superior Court Commissioner Scott Gordon extended the suspension of Britney's visitation rights when she failed to appear in court.

She eventually showed up, however, turned around and left before ever entering the building.

Brit Going Back To Court

The following italicized article is from www.x17online.com:

X17 has confirmed that Britney and K-Fed (or at least their lawyers) will be back in court tomorrow, where the commissioner in her custody case will hear Brit's plea for monitored visitation.

According to TMZ, Brit's lawyers plan to ask for "visitation in a therapeutic setting", which, they surmise, is a "creative way" for her family to force her to seek help.

Additionally, they say Brit's been ordered to have a mental health evaluation (called a 730), which she has so far refused to participate in. It's unlikely if she continues to refuse the 730 that the court would allow her to regain visitation, even in a therapeutic setting.

X17 will bring you more details on this breaking story as soon as we have them!

Brit seems to have gotten serious about the process, let's hope she wins her bid for visitation!

George's Britney Surprise

The following italicized article is from www.pagesix.com:

January 3 was just an average day for George Clooney — until he came home and discovered that there was nothing ordinary about what was going on at his neighbors’ mansion.

"I just found out I live within, like, 300 or 400 yards from Britney Spears because I came home at 10 o'clock at night and there were all these helicopters over my house with these lights," George told Access Hollywood, referring to the infamous night when Britney engaged in an hours-long standoff that preceded her involuntary hospitalization.

Naturally, as anyone in their right mind would do, the newly Oscar-nominated star jumped to wild conclusions, deciding that all the hubbub was due to an escaped convict running through his Hollywood neighborhood. "I think, 'Someone's broken out of prison...' I get my baseball bat and I called up my assistant, who I thought was in my guesthouse." And, hilariously, George quickly came up with a code word to determine if his assistant was being held hostage by the escaped lunatic.

"I said, 'Are you OK? If there's someone in the place, say the word Stonehenge,' and she's like, 'What the f*** are you talking about?'" The truth eventually became clear to George, as did his only remaining option: "So now I have to move," he said.

Yeah, that might be for the best.

Britney Spears Lover to Reveal All in Interview

The following italicized article is from www.transworldnews.com:

Britney Spears paparazzo lover Adnan Ghalib is reportedly set to tell all in an upcoming TV interview. The photographer is set to reveal intimate details about the time he spent with the troubled pop star.

According to gossip blogger Perez Hilton, Ghalib is being paid a large amount of money to sit for the interview. “He’s getting paid a lot. And his interview will be stretched out over several days,” a source tells Hilton.

Ghalib and Spears allegedly ended their brief relationship recently. The 26-year-old is said to have taken out a retraining order on Ghalib.

Meanwhile, Spears sat for her deposition in her custody battle with Kevin Federline yesterday. The singer arrived at Federline’s lawyer’s office wearing jeans and a thin blue shirt but no bra. The deposition lasted more than 2 hours. Spears was expected to answer questions about anything that might affect her ability to care for her two sons.

K-Fed Lawyer: Spears Deposition 'Gut-Wrenching'

The following italicized article is from www.people.com:

Britney Spears's deposition at the hands of Kevin Federline lawyer Mark Vincent Kaplan has been an emotionally difficult experience that has only just begun, Kaplan tells PEOPLE.

"We are going over things that are very, very gut-wrenching," Kaplan said Monday night, speaking outside of Katsuya restaurant in Brentwood. He declined to discuss specifics of the questioning, but said, "Just to revisit them even in your own mind would not be pleasurable."

"It's not something anyone would enjoy," he says.

Spear has a spotty record with past deposition dates in the custody case, missing numerous appointments and sitting for only 14 minutes on Jan. 3. Kaplan is expected to be grilling Spears, 26, about past drug and alcohol use, her failure to comply with court orders and any other subject relating to her fitness as a parent.

After a meltdown and brief forced hospitalization, Spears lost visitation rights with sons Preston, 2, and Jayden, 1. Ex-husband Federline, 29, has sole legal and physical custody.

Even Monday's session was in doubt.

"She was about 50 minutes late," he says. "After an hour I would have been over it. I was prepared to terminate had she not showed at that time."

Spears was spotted biting her fingernails when arriving to Kaplan's Century City Plaza office. After spending more than two hours there, Spears appeared tense and lit up a cigarette behind the wheel of her Mercedes before driving through Beverly Hills listening to Madonna on the stereo.

The deposition on a national holiday Monday was booked after the shortened deposition on Jan. 3. The holiday booking was done to accommodate busy lawyer schedules, says Kaplan, and it "did dovetail into allowing this to be a low-profile appearance."

Kaplan says there will further depositions in the unspecified future, claiming that he has only worked through "2 percent" of his questions.

"There is a lot of work to be done," he says. But he adds he was heartened by the idea of even having the meeting in the first place. "She came for her deposition, that's great," says Kaplan. "Showing up is form over substance."

Brit Wants What Judge Has Already Ordered

The following italicized article is from www.tmz.com:

TMZ has learned Commissioner Scott Gordon has repeatedly ordered Britney Spears to undergo a psychological evaluation but she has refused to comply.

We're told the Commish has issued multiple orders -- known as a 730 evaluation. Now, as we just reported, Brit's family and professionals have devised a plan to get her mental health help in a "creative way." But given his previous orders, the Commish may not be receptive, and almost certainly K-Fed's lawyer, Mark Vincent Kaplan, will object.

Evaluating bipolar disorder is a long process. If it's done pursuant to a 730 evaluation, the results are submitted to the court. If the Commish were to accept the alternative form of treatment, a doctor-patient privilege could prevent certain information from making its way to the court (unless the privilege is waived).

Here's the likely scenario based on what we're hearing: K-Fed (and probably the court) will not want Brit to bypass the 730 evaluation process. That could make it unlikely for Brit's lawyers to win a bid to regain visitation in a therapeutic setting.

We'll be live streaming video at the courthouse tomorrow morning. Stay tuned.

Brit Wants Therapeutic Visitation

The following italicized article is from www.tmz.com:

TMZ has learned Britney Spears' lawyers will go to court tomorrow and ask Commissioner Scott Gordon to allow Brit "monitored visitation in a therapeutic setting.

"TMZ has learned Brit's family and professionals in her life have been planning a "creative way" to get Britney mental help. As TMZ first reported, Britney has some sort of bipolar disorder. We know the plan is not involuntary commitment -- under the law she's simply not a candidate. It's not voluntarily commitment either -- Brit has refused to do that. The family and professionals have devised a different way of getting her evaluated and hopefully treated.

But there's a rub, which we'll explain in the next post.

The hearing is scheduled for tomorrow at 8:30 AM. Don't know if Brit and K-Fed will show, but it's certainly not out of the question.

Britney Spears' Snapper Beau Names His Price

The following italicized article is from www.entertainmentwise.com:

Britney Spears snapper boyfriend is cashing in on his fifteen minutes of fame, claim reports.

According to several news outlets, 35-year-old Ghalib – who was dumped by the Toxic singer following fears he was profiting from their relationship - is selling intimate photos and footage of their brief time together via Los Angeles-based agency Finalpixx

The report further claims that the 26-year-old will be “embarssed” over the latest footage that Adnan is attempting to sell for "hundreds of thousands" of dollars.

The news comes just hours after a tussled and tattered Spears gave a two-hour deposition in her ongoing custody battle with ex Kevin Federline.

Accompanied by gal-pal, Sam Lufti, the pop-star arrived at the Century City offices of Mark Vincent Kaplan at about 10:40 a.m.

The singer – who has dodged a string of appointments for the court-ordered cross examination with K-Fed’s attorney – was later spotted leaving at 1:30 p.m. with, according to a E! News source, “a blank look on her face.”

All The Britney's A Stage

The following italicized article is from www.pagesix.com:

BRITNEY Spears is in cahoots with the paparazzi to make sure her every move is chronicled on camera, a top snapper says. Lensman Alison Silva tells celebrity private eye Paul Barresi: "Britney is in on it. [She] calls the paparazzi before she goes out. We know 15 minutes before she leaves the house. It's all staged."

Silva adds that when four photographers were arrested last week for chasing the increasingly demented pop tart, "one of [them who] works for my company told me that Britney sent him a text message and said she was sorry. She tried to talk the cops into not arresting them . . . Money, fame, the excitement. It's part of her life." Barresi told Page Six that after reviewing footage of Spears with Adnan Ghalib, "[he] appeared to purposely position Britney in full view of fellow paparazzi to help them get the shot . . . It appeared that Britney is in on the sham." Barresi says if anti-paparazzi laws are ever enacted, celebs in cahoots with them should be just as liable. Spears' rep could not be reached.

Britney Betrayed!!!

Things between Britney and her paparazzi boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, went from sweet to sour very quickly. And Spears' "manager" - Osama Lutfi - is to blame, sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com.

"Sam viewed Adnan as a threat," an insider tells us.

Plus, Adnan was fucking up Sam's '$pecial relation$hip' with one photo agency?????

Now that things between Ghalib and Spears are OVER, the paparazzo is going back to doing what he does best: making money off of Britney.

Adnan's photo agency is selling pictures of text messages that Spears left Ghalib, PerezHilton.com has learned.

We've seen the contact sheet ourself that the Finalpixx is shopping around!

It's nothing too salacious. Brit Brit talks about missing Adnan and wanting to be a teacher.

But selling his private texts from Spears is not the only thing Ghalib has up his sleeves!

Sources reveal exclusively to PerezHilton.com that Adnan has just inked a deal with one of the entertainment TV shows in the U.S. to sell his story.
"He's getting paid a lot," an insider tells us. "And his interview will be stretched out over several days."

Milking it!

This is expected. We just can't wait until the day Britney and Osama have their eventual falling out.

He'll be the one to write the book!
