Britney Spears's on-again, off-again boyfriend, Adnan Ghalib, tells PEOPLE he's taking a break from paparazzi work.

"It would be a conflict of interest," Ghalib told PEOPLE at Thursday's Christian Audigier fall/winter 2008 fashion show in West Hollywood. In fact, the celebrity photographer said he has not worked since December.

Although Ghalib – Spears's constant companion in early 2008 – has been largely out of the picture since Spears's pair of psychiatric hospitalizations, he has still popped up occasionally.

The photographer was denied entry at the gate of Spears's home last week. But on Tuesday, he was allowed inside.
