Chaotic pop star Britney Spears has found time for a steamy liaison with magician CRISS ANGEL, according to reports.

The TOXIC singer broke down in tears following her latest legal battle with ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE, but just hours later was seen with Angel in LA.

And reports claim the couple spent the night together in a Beverly Hills hotel, with Britney sending her bodyguard to the shops to get some condoms.

The magician, 39, has a show on US TV called Mindfreak, in which he levitates, walks on water, passes through glass panes, hypnotises people and various other magic tricks.

Angel met Britney in trendy LA restaurant Cravings, before heading to the Hotel Bel-Air. However, insiders told the Sun newspaper that they were turned away after Britney broke down in the hotel and attacked a photographer with an umbrella earlier this year.

Instead they headed to the Tower in Beverley Hills.

An onlooker said: "Britney seemed entranced by Criss."
