Britney Spears hooks up with a back-up dancer while her dad’s away?

britney spearsBritney Spears has reportedly had a tour fling with a backing dancer.

Britney’s social life on her Circus Tour is restricted due to her ongoing conservatorship but a source told the New York Daily News that the singer hooked up with the 21 year old while her dad Jamie Spears was away on business last week.

The source explained: “Britney was a bad girl. Literally as soon as her dad left, she started getting cozy with a dancer named Gio.

“It wasn’t serious. They had a few romantic interludes, and she bought him a few things - a pair of shoes and some clothes - even though she’s on an allowance.

“Britney was definitely getting jiggy there for a hot minute, but they’ve slowed down since Jamie got back in the picture. It’s basically over now.”

Britney has been single since she was placed under the conservatorship last February. Before that, she had a number of flings with random men, including paparazzo Adnan Ghalib and producer JR Rotem, after splitting from husband Kevin Federline in late 2006.

Guy Ritchie is “loving” being single

Guy RitchieGuy Ritchie has joined his former wife Madonna in singing the praises of singledom.

The couple split in October after eight years of marriage and since then, the film director has been linked to a number of socialites and models - and was the centre of attention at the Empire Awards after-party at the weekend.

An onlooker told the Mirror: “Guy was larking around with his mates - they were pretending to punch each other and were bopping their heads to Britney’s Womanizer.

“He was minding his own business, but once word spread that he was in the building he couldn’t get a minute to himself with all the ladies approaching him.

“He was quite a catch, making them feel at ease, asking each of their names and having a giggle with them.

“One girl got her mate to take a picture of her kissing him, and he was totally game.”

The source also quoted Guy as saying: “I’m loving it at the moment. This is what I’ve been missing.”

Madonna takes son David to meet his biological dad

Madonna and David RitchieMadonna has taken her son David back to meet his biological father in Malawi while she is in the country to adopt a second child.

Madonna flew into the country on Sunday with daughter Lourdes and sons David & Rocco ahead of a court hearing yesterday. The singer is believed to be interested in adopting a three year old girl, known as Mercy, from the same orphanage David came from in 2006. She attended the High Court in Lilongwe briefly yesterday but the case was adjourned until Friday.

Afterwards, she took her children to visit poor villages around the capital - and took David to meet his biological father, Yohane Banda.

Yohane told reporters that he and the three year old boy spoke through an interpreter: “He asked me in English who I was and what I do. When I told him, ‘I am your daddy’ he looked surprised.

“We spent three hours together… David is quite chatty and intelligent. It’s amazing how [he] has grown. I can’t believe he is the same small and sickly baby.

“He asked whether I ride horses but I told him horses are for the rich. He asked me why I am poor. He said his mum likes riding horses and told me that one day he and his brother, Rocco, rode horses and fell. He said his mum spanked him because they are not supposed to ride on their own.

“He seems to likes his daddy [Guy Ritchie] so much. I was a sad Madonna broke up with him. I would have loved it if they sorted out whatever problems they had instead of divorcing because divorce is bad for kids.”

An onlooker added: “Yohane said he understood why David had not recognised him. He was such a young child when they parted. Yohane said he hardly recognised David, either, as he has grown so big and strong.

“It was an emotional meeting for Yohane, but David kept playing with his nose, which made him laugh.”

Gisele Bündchen already feels like a mum to step-son but might adopt too

gisele bundchen and tom bradyNewlywed supermodel Gisele Bundchen has said she’s thinking of adopting a child from her native Brazil.

Gisele married American football star Tom Brady in a private ceremony in Santa Monica, California a month ago and are said to be planning a wedding celebration in Costa Rica for friends and family this weekend.

Gisele told Vanity Fair that she’s ready to start a family with the athlete but she’s thinking of adoption too: “I would love to adopt a child from Brazil.

“When you come from Sao Paulo, you see five-year-olds sniffing glue on the corner. You think, if you make a difference in the life of one of them, that makes your time on this Earth worthwhile.”

She added that she already feels like a mum to her 17 month old step-son John, from Tom’s previous relationship with Bridget Moynahan: “I already feel like he’s my son, from the first day.

“When we are in [Los Angeles], we have Johnny 50 per cent of the time. He’s a little angel - the sweetest, most cuddly, loving baby. I feel blessed to have him in my life.

“I understand that he has a mum, and I respect that. But to me, it’s not like because somebody else delivered him, that’s not my child - I feel it is, 100 per cent. I love him the same way as if he were mine.”

Jack Tweed to read out a poem at Jade Goody’s funeral

jack tweedJack Tweed is reportedly planning to read out a poem he’s written in honour of wife Jade Goody at her funeral on Saturday.

The 21 year old is said to have adapted several funeral poems to write the personal tribute to the reality TV star, who he married just over a month ago.

A source told the Mirror that he’s been practising it frequently over the past few days because he wants it to be perfect on the day: “He wants Jade to be proud of him.

“He’s not brilliant with words so the thought of standing in front of hundreds of people is quite nervewracking. But he’s delighted with it and hopes Jade will like it when she listens down from heaven.

“There won’t be a dry eye in the house. Jack has given this his all. It will be very special indeed.”

Jack is also expected to be one of the pallbearers at the event which will take place at St John the Baptist church in Buckhurst Hill, Essex.

Jade died at her home in Upshire, Essex just over a week ago.

natasha bedingfieldNatasha Bedingfield has revealed she cried throughout her wedding earlier this month.

The singer married businessman Matthew Robinson in an outdoor ceremony in Malibu a fortnight ago.

She told Hello magazine this week: “I started crying when I walked down the aisle with my dad John.”

But they were good tears: “I’d made sure I had waterproof mascara, because I cry when I’m happy. I felt so at peace and felt no fear.

“Even when Matt and I were taking our vows we were whispering, ‘This just feels so natural, like it was meant to be.’”

Natasha wore an ivory Vera Wang dress for the ceremony, which took place on the lawn at the Church Estates Vineyards.
