Britney Spears has confirmed reports she is learning about the Kabbalah from spiritual pal Madonna.

The MATERIAL GIRL was allegedly attempting to convert Britney to the mystical Jewish study after she emerged from a rehearsal for their raunchy MTV VMA AWARDS performance wearing a Kabbalah string bracelet - worn by followers to ward off evil spirits.

Now a spokesperson for the pop star has confirmed Britney - who is now best pals with Madonna after their raunchy onstage kiss - is seriously studying the teachings.

The rep tells American gossip site THE SCOOP, "Britney was introduced to Kabbalah through her friendship with Madonna," the rep tells the Scoop. She is now learning more about it."
