Adnan Ghalib insists he is still dating Britney Spears. British paparazzo Adnan reportedly told friends last month he is Britney's boyfriend, despite her obtaining a restraining order against him last week.
According to Heat magazine, a source claims Adnan - who has not been seen with the "Womanizer" singer in over a year - said: "I still love Britney. I'm her boyfriend."
"Britney has a beautiful soul. We share something really special. The truth about us will come out eventually, but it's not for me to talk about. I love her."
Adnan's relationship with Britney, 27, was quickly curtailed when Britney's father Jamie became her co-conservator - and was placed in control of her money and affairs - in February last year.
In the same month, Adnan was given his first temporary order requiring him to stay at least 250 yards away from Britney - who was hospitalized at the time at the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles for observation.
Adnan abided by its terms until July when the order expired and wasn't renewed.
However, Britney gained another temporary order against Adnan and her former manager Sam Lutfi which accused them both of trying to "disrupt" the conservatorship order earlier this month.
A hearing has been scheduled for February 23 which will review the restraining order.
