BRITNEY SPEARS is allowed to go on dates - but only if she is under the supervision of her assistant and members of her management team.
The star split from ex-husband KEVIN FEDERLINE in 2006 and was subsequently linked to British paparazzi photographer ADNAN GHALIB. The relationship dissolved earlier this year following a breakdown which saw her admitted to a Los Angeles hospital for psychiatric evaluation.
And now as she embarks on a career comeback with her new album, Circus, Spears admits that she is able to date - but only under the watchful eye of her assistant, known only as Brett, and Adam Leber, a colleague of her manager Larry Rudolph.
And Spears reveals she enjoys her time back on the single circuit - even though her dates have not been much of a success.
She tells Rolling Stone magazine, "Right when we got there, we just knew it was just bad. He looked like an older version of Harry Potter, but skinnier...
So I had to get dessert first. And the other date I had, the guy was really, really tall and a lot older... We're trying to ask him questions, like, 'OK, you're into martial arts, so what kind of martial arts are you into?' And he was like, 'Oh, all kinds.' But you know how silly we are, so we were just cracking up."
