Britney Spears has baffled fans and the media by wearing a diamond ring on her wedding finger - despite the recent annulment of her brief marriage.

The OOPS! ... I DID IT AGAIN star shocked the world when she tied the knot with childhood pal Jason Alexander in Las Vegas earlier this month (3JAN04).

Realising her mistake, the partnership was annulled after just 55 hours - with reports of Alexander being offered $540,000 (GBP300,000) for agreeing to the official split.

However, the 22-year-old singer was photographed with a diamond ring still clearly on her wedding finger at London's HEATHROW AIRPORT yesterday (20JAN04), where she stopped briefly before jetting off to Germany to promote her new album TOXIC.

With this wedding being the most recent in a long line of Britney's rebellious disasters, it seems now that she is intent on renewing her vows with God - she was spotted carrying a copy of the BIBLE and a book called CONVERSATIONS WITH GOD.
