Adnan Ghalib, Britney Spears

The rest of 2007 was troublesome for the star. After infamously shaving her head, she checked into rehab. That was followed by an ugly custody battle with Federline and a disastrous failed comeback at the MTV Video Music Awards. During all the drama, she raised eyebrows when she started dating a paparazzo in December 2007. Adnan Ghalib – with his trademark landing-strip goatee – became her constant companion and was her boyfriend in January 2008 when she was hospitalized two different times for psychiatric evaluations. It was at that point that her father, Jamie, took control of her affairs. A court order mandated that Ghalib stay away from Spears. As she became healthier, Spears forgot all about Ghalib and fell for her manager Trawick, who was part of the close-knit inner circle her father established as her conservator.
