Another Rehab Romance

for Britney?

4/5/2007 8:40 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

It looks like Britney Spears sparked up another romance while in rehab – this time with musician Howie Day.

The newly detoxed Spears met Day while at Promises, and according to Life & Style (via MSNBC), "fell hard" for the troubled singer-songwriter while in the facility, so hard that she's bringing him to a family wedding in June. Britney "just lights up" when she talks about Day and apparently thinks he's "the best kisser ever."

Still, Mama Lynne Spears isn't so stoked about Brit's new paramour because of his troubled past – he's been arrested -- once for locking a fan in his tour bus bathroom and another time for verbally abusing a flight crew while he was drunk.

Tabs Turn on Angelina


Angelina Jolie's cozy relationship with one celeb magazine is getting her a roasting by the other Jolie-deprived celeb glossies, Page Six is reporting. According to sources, Us Weekly, Star and the rest are "so fed up with getting scooped by People," they've gone after Jolie and Brad Pitt "with a vengeance."

One of the tabs reports that Jolie has a "twisted double life," and another alleges that she leaves her kids at a day care center instead of with her four nannies – and amongst other special arrangements, that no cell phones are allowed in the center because Angelina's afraid that pictures of the kids will be taken (because they're not already photographed all the time?). Angie's rep says, "I wish people would leave them alone. They're trying to do something good." And even though Page Six suggests Jolie share pictures of her next kid – supposedly a child from Chad – TMZ has been told that no adoption is in the works.
