Mel Befriends Britney

3/16/2008 3:50 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

TMZ has learned Mel Gibson and his family have very privately befriended Britney Spears to help her through her troubles.

The two were at Romanov Restaurant and Lounge in L.A. last night and according to one report they broke bread together. Our sources say Gibson, his wife Robin and their kids reached out to Britney during her darkest days and began seeing her.

We're told Mel and Robin feel like they know how tough it is to live in a fishbowl and they think they can help the Britster. There have been private dinners in which Mel, Robin and their brood have hooked up with Brit to give her support.

At Romanov's last night, Mel and Brit did not walk in or out together. Looks like Mr. Mel, unlike lots of other celebs, isn't into splashing his good deeds in the media. Nice.

He probably wants to help her get back on her feet. He does a better job of helping others than helping in point: Robert Downey Jr. He gave RDJ a break and a role when no one else would take a chance on him after his last meltdown and he's managed to hold it together since..

A good man, flawed yet gave the world a film that will have impact on generations to come. Thanks, Mel.

Britney, run away from this Jew hater! He is not the one to help you. Only Tom & Katie can do it! Mel is a bigoted, hateful little man who ruined his career (or was it karma?) b/c his true nature was FINALLY exposed.

I'm just saying is all.....    

That's great she needs all the support she can get, and they don't even need or want to be PAID
Meanwhile, everyonelse else wants a piece of her, to pay for attorneys, fund a business or to just be her parent.
It is nice to know there are still good people out there that have an interest in the person and not the money.

dreamer - ARE YOU F**KING KIDDING ME??? Mel is no Mr. Wonderful. His Jew-hating movie only fueled the fire of nutty religious zealots. If you were a Jew you'd know EXACTLY what I mean. But you are most likely a "nice" white Christian who preaches "Jesus loves me!" while you talk about "cheap Jews" behind their backs. Mel, like his father, is a horrible anti-Semite who wants to push his conservative Catholicism sect (which does not even allow women on the altar) by decrying the Jews who crucified his Jesus. Passion plays and movies for decades (if not longer) have made sure that Jews are depicted as slimey, hate-filled back stabbers. Shame on Mel Gibson - he brought his downfall on himself. I hope he is never received by Hollywood again.

Britney run for your life.

Democrats are evil    

Why would anyone want to help this ungrateful, mentally retarded waste of human life. Hey Mel, you can't teach a pig to sing, you just waste your time and you annoy the pig.

I'm glad she has one person who has befriended her without blabbing all over and hoping for that "photo op"

Maybe Mel's wife wanted to help. I wish more of the Hollywood inhabitants would reach out to her.

Better Mel got to her before Tom Cruise and his nut patrol could brainwash her.
