Troubled star Britney Spears chose to seek refuge in the arms of her new love ADNAN GHALIB following her release from hospital, according to reports. The singer discharged herself from Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Centre on Saturday (05Jan08), after being admitted to hospital following a four-hour stand off during which she dramatically refused to hand over her sons to ex-husband Kevin Federline following a scheduled visit on Thursday night (03Jan08). But reports allege Spears sought solace from British photographer Ghalib following her ordeal, much to the disdain of her friends and family. A source tells British newspaper The Sun, "Britney is on the edge. It's worrying - and ironic - that the only person she feels she can turn to is a paparazzo. It's like the lamb going to stay with the wolf pack. Britney knows Adnan because he has followed her relentlessly for months." Earlier this month, Spears allegedly missed the original date for her court-ordered deposition in her fight to regain custody of her two sons, Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one, from ex-husband Federline.
