THE LOVE NEST: The Parker Palm Springs, California

THE PLAYERS: Britney Spears and Adnan Ghalib

THE DISH: Train-wreck pop singer Britney Spears and her bizarro onetime companion, married 35-year-old paparazzo Adnan Ghalib, characterized their relationship as platonic. But how many platonic friends visit hotels together for a few hours in the middle of the night? Though the Parker in Palm Springs—with its riotous postmodern design and Versailles-like gardens—is hardly the kind of place with an hourly rate, these two treated it as such. In January 2008, they reportedly checked into a $1,200-a-night villa (with Britney wearing a black wig and dark sunglasses) at 2 am and emerged five hours later. What, pray tell, did the odd couple do to fill their short stay? Ghalib, who was quoted in Us Weekly months earlier saying "I'll get [Spears] sooner or later," told the press that he merely comforted Britney, who was struggling with custody issues at the time. His tactics were apparently less than effective: Within 48 hours of their Parker visit Spears had the infamous psychotic breakdown that sent her to Cedars-Sinai in restraints.
