The 'Toxic' singer, who broke up with Ghalib last year amid rumours of a sex tape and kiss and tells, is believed to be pining after him despite a judge ordering a three-year restraining order against the paparazzo in March this year.
A friend of the star told Fox News: "She is still totally in love with Adnan and she can’t even speak too him, it’s making her really depressed."
Spears is now believed to be dating agent Jason Trawick, a relationship that is apparently being encouraged by her father, Jamie Spears.
Another friend told Perez Hilton: "Jamie is really, really pushing the relationship with Jason, he thinks he's a really good influence on Britney. And the last thing he wants is Britney going back to Adnan. She would if she could."
