Something borrowed, something ... leased?
Revisiting her wedding look, Britney Spears
donned one of two dresses from her Kevin Federline
nuptials to go to a car dealership last week with her new paparazzi friend.
Spears, 26, and Adnan Ghalib, 35, arrived at the Keyes Mercedes-Benz dealership in the San Fernando Valley on Friday afternoon, surrounded by the now-familiar pack of photographers that once contained Ghalib.
The twist was the pop singer was wearing the same lacy, short dress from her 2004 wedding
to Federline – her second walk down the aisle following her 55-hour marriage to Jason Alexander.
Spears's own Mercedes was impounded
last week after she abandoned it on the road when it blew a tire, but this trip to the dealer was for Ghalib, her constant companion since her meltdown.
"They came in to get an estimate for a new car for him," a sales associate says. "He drives a rental car now. ... He was looking into the different lease and purchase options for sport cars."
By the time they started talking business, Spears had covered up with a trench coat, the sales person says.
"She didn't talk at all and it didn't seem like she was getting the car for him," the sales associate says.
