Will Pap Pal Push Britney Pix?

1/8/2008 9:02 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Britney Spears has plenty to deal with without worrying about her new paparazzo sidekick dealing in what are being described as "provocative" pics of the Britmess.

A "friend" of Spears tells MSNBC, "Photos are already on the market, and although they're tame, who's to say what the next round will hold?" Adnan Ghalib, Britney's current pap pal, has been spotted with Brit at hotels and restaurants everywhere from Beverly Hills to the desert.

Meanwhile, the Britwreck just kept clattering down the road last night, suffering a flat tire right in the middle of traffic. TMZ caught the chaos, and we'll have the video coming right up.

Lapine also alleges that Seinfeld defamed her when he called her a "wacko" on David Letterman and suggested that, If you read history, many of the three-name people do become assassins."
