Kevin Federline wants to get Britney Spears away from her paparazzo boyfriend
The pair were first linked last month after she invited him to join her in a hotel room at the Peninsula Hotel in Los Angeles. They spent a further evening together last week then this weekend disappeared - first to Palm Desert then reportedly to a hotel in Santa Monica and a private house in the Hollywood Hills - after Britney was released from hospital on Saturday morning.
A source close to Kevin told the Sun: “Kevin and his legal team want to get Britney away from him. They are concerned she has completely lost all sense of reality. Dating a photographer who has tailed her for months is like sleeping with the enemy.”
The photographer, originally from Birmingham, has been tracking Britney for the Finalpixx photo agency for around 18 months after moving to the US with his now-estranged American wife.
The source added: “Kevin’s team want him sent [back to the UK] if he hasn’t got his [visa work] papers in order. They also plan to bring Adnan before the court to explain why he took Britney into hiding when she really needed further medical attention.”
“They are concerned that he is not looking out for her best interests and are worried about him being around the kids.”
Kevin may find that he has an unlikely ally in the battle: Britney’s close friend Sam Lufti. Over the weekend, Sam expressed concern that Adnan was taking advantage of the star financially and was shopping around exclusive candid photos of her along with a tell-all story.
And as if consorting with one paparazzo wasn’t enough, a second photographer came to Britney’s aid yesterday when she decided to abandon her car while out for a drive.
The pop star nearly caused gridlock in Beverly Hills after abandoning her car at the busy Sunset Boulevard/405 Freeway junction yesterday evening. Onlookers claim she complained of a flat tyre after an hour of driving around with her assistant Karla before getting out of the car and asking for a ride back to her gated community from one of the paparazzi following her adventures.
As no tow trucks appeared, Britney’s white Mercedes was towed away by police as it was, according to an LAPD spokesperson, “blocking the roadway”. Britney now has 30 days to collect it - paying the $104 towing fee plus $32 for each day it remains in the impound yard - or else it will be put up for public auction.
