Britney And Paparazzo Lover Surface In Mexico, Then Back In LA

Posted: Updated:

Britney and Adnan are back in LA and he was spotted leaving her home Thursday afternoon.

Just one week after the custody stand-off that resulted in Britney Spears losing custody of her kids, getting taken to the hospital strapped to a gurney and being hospitalized for 36 hours, Spears was in Mexico.

TMZ has footage of Spears and Adnan Ghalib, the paparazzo she spent last weekend with drinking in the desert with, driving in Mexico.

X17 has more details from a Spanish language paper:

The two (plus some unidentified pals) arrived by Brit's car in the coastal town (which is about a half-hour from the border and a popular spring break destination) yesterday at 3pm, according to El Vigia.

Britney and her paparazzo boy toy checked into a suite at the Rosarito Beach Hotel, before hitting Rosarito's shops.

Britney apparently indulged in a little Mexican craftsmanship - the paper reports she bought a fake Gucci purse.

She may have also indulged in something else. One shop owner described her as looking "inebriated."

Hours earlier, she was reportedly on her way with Ghalib to New York.

According to TMZ, "This followed an elaborate fake-out involving Brit's people, tail numbers on a private jet ... the works."
