Britney Spears is dating a new guy and TMZ has the story: real or pr?

These are photos of Britney Spears out and about over the past few days. That puppy is new! Britney got him just a couple of weeks ago. I hope the adorable guy is ok, he’s sporting a pink bandage here. Britney likes to go casual, and you can see how she’s relaxed her style post-breakup. She loves her sweats, although I think she looks cuter when she tries a little, like in the photos of her with the fuchsia tank and red sweatshirt. Those colors don’t go together, but her clothing is flattering and her hair and makeup are really cute. Otherwise it seems like when Britney is single she likes to throw on some sweats and look like she just rolled out of bed.

Where Britney Spears’ dating life is concerned, I’m skeptical of any news. After her breakup with fiance Jason Trawick, outlets claimed that Britney’s people would set her upon dates with cute guys.” It’s been about a month since the split announcement, so it seems like a logical time to roll out this story. Britney was seen on two dates with a a guy named David who works for a law firm in some supportive capacity. There are some blurry faraway photos of their golf date and Valentine’s sushi dinner, and TMZ has the details. At least there aren’t close-up paparazzi photos of these two, but that would be too obvious, wouldn’t it? Here’s more:

We now know the identity of the mystery man who took Britney Spears out for a Valentine’s Day dinner and played golf with her over the weekend. He is … a very normal guy.

His name is David. He works for a law firm — he’s not a lawyer– does “field research” … kind of a jack-of-all-trades. He’s definitely not a wealthy guy.

David — who is 27 — is from Atlanta and does not seem to have significant roots in California.

As for his relationship with Britney … we’re told they met through friends. The pics (above) were taken at the Sherwood Country Club where Britney lives. He’s a big golfer and he’s teaching her the moves. Britney has actually taken a liking to golf and is thinking about becoming a member of the country club.

As for the Valentine’s Day date, it was pretty quick. They were in and out of the sushi joint in less than a half hour. The bill was $60. David tipped $13.

As for whether they’re dating … no one is saying (her reps have been dodging the issue with us for days) but it sure seems that way.

The reps have been “dodging the issue” as to whether Britney and David are dating, while they’re giving TMZ the details and some blurry photos for confirmation. This is the new PR game: play the story like investigative journalism and not like it’s a plant. That said, I’m rooting for Britney and hope that if this is the case, if her people are hand picking these guys for her to date, that they’re genuinely trying to help and the guys aren’t famewhores or gold diggers. She’s had too many of those in her life. Britney needs some diversions in her gilded cage.

We haven’t heard any news about Britney’s Las Vegas deal in a little while. The last we heard, her manager was almost certain that a residency deal for Britney was about to happen, and the corporate owner of Planet Hollywood announced that they were “actively engaged in discussions with Britney Spears’ representatives.” That was on February 8, so it seems like an announcement should be coming soon. Maybe they’re getting bogged down in the details. There must be so many things to hammer down in those huge multi-million dollar contracts.

    I don’t believe a word that comes from TMZ, I think it is the scummiest of the scum and can be bought off to say whatever the highest bidder wants said.

  2. MyLeNe - Montreal says:

    I’m sure it’s a gay friends or something like that. He take her out for valentine day.

  3. TheOriginalKitten says:

    She looks really pretty in the pics of her wearing that coral-colored sweatshirt.

    She looks so relaxed and peaceful.

  4. Sumodo1 says:

    Aw, geez, Britney! You already broke the poor Maltese puppy’s leg. See, she can’t even take care of a puppy–and if she wants to end conservatorship,that Maltese is Exhibit A.

  5. Mags says:

    I’m sorry but she’s scares me as a dog owner. What happened to the dogs she had a few years back!? There was Bitbit, London, Lacey, and another one I think.

  6. Rianic says:

    I wore a magenta cardigan and a red tee on valentines day…. I thought it was cute and very appropriate for my daughter’s class party

  7. Gossip Girl says:

    iT WAS A LAWYER,SHE HAD A MEETING WIth…to lzay to type it again.sorry bout the caps.

  8. bopit says:

    aghhhhhh… the turtleneck and ever-present stained grey sweats are killing me!

  9. Britt Britt says:

    Clive DAvis is BI (sexual), ya’ll!

  10. HotPockets says:

    Someone pencil some eyebrows onto that poor girl.

    • ZigZagZoey says:

      YES!!!! It drives me crazy! They don’t have to be dark, but please give them definition. She would look so much better. Same thing happens to Jennifer Garner lately…..WTF is wrong with their makeup people? It’s pretty basic…

      Also….Is she bringing the dog to the vet? That could be why she’s wearing the dirty sweats?

  11. Shira says:

    Does she even own an unstained pair of sweats?? Why, Brit?! I don’t go out like this, and nobody’s taking my pictures!

  12. spinner says:

    I’m afraid Brit’s hay-days are over. It looks like she is out there trying to garner attention but sadly, the show is over.

  13. aud says:

    I love Britney. I hope she never changes. I love that she honestly just does not give a damn.

    She dresses like I do when I’m PMSing and off to buy tampons and ice cream

  14. gistine says:

    Dead, dead eyes. That woman is a damn robot and her emptiness just seeps out of her. Very sad what the Machine has done to her.

    Get back on the Cheetos, Britney!

  15. G says:

    I mean really did Jason usually dress her too?! Her style is just so po-dunk.

  16. Tiffany says:

    How can she casually date anyone, when the boyfriend position also comes with baby sitting responsibilities? Sometimes, there are more important things that romantic relationships.

    Brit needs to focus on her mental health and her children. I worry when they set these men up like romatic interests instead of care takers. If the truth is really so sad that they have to hide it (aka calling it bf instead of handler), maybe she needs some time off from pimping the Britney brand?

  17. gogoGorilla says:

    I don’t understand why celebrities insist on walking around with their little dogs in their hands. Either WALK the dog or leave him home where he is not going to be terrified by a bunch of people taking pictures. I mean, does anyone really go to Starbucks carrying their little dog with them? It seems so stupid and contrived.

    PS: The stained sweats make my eyeballs hurt. If I was her conservator, I would totally go through her wardrobe and ditch everything questionable. I’m sure she has so many clothes she’d never even notice. Like with pre-teens, you have to frontload them with stuff that sorta goes together no matter how they put it together.

    I feel so bad for Britney. She’s a shell of a person, I can’t recall the last time I saw life behind her eyes. It’s even sadder in person. She’s made her record company enough money, she has plenty to live peacefully for a lifetime… Why won’t they just let her be? I feel like her handlers completely sold her soul. I’m rooting for her, I hope she finds a decent guy and mostly a sense of normalcy.

  19. d says:

    Britney stories are always depressing ones, no matter what. If part of Jason’s duties were to actually CLOTHE AND FEED her, that doesn’t say much for Britney…I mean, that is just depressing that someone needs to look after her that much and that she doesn’t seem to be able to take care of herself at all.
    So, can she really care for that dog? Is it part of testing her abilities? Is the one that actually feeds it, takes it out for a pee and poo, excercise it?
    I also haven’t see her actually touch her boys for the longest time…you never see any pictures of her closely interacting with them.
    I think it’s because she seems to take so little care of herself, that I doubt she can take care of anything else.
    That said, I actually like the fushia-red combo. I think it works.
    I think the Vegas thing has fallen through.
    Mystery guy looks like another sleazy one.
    Don’t want to slam Britney, but everything about her these days is just…sad.

  20. Cinderella says:

    I can’t hate on the sweats. We all have at least one busted pair. Some days, the glam button is OFF.

    I am digging her eye makeup (does need complete eyebrows though). I’ve always liked her in browns/nudes on her eyes and lips.

  21. Meanchick says:

    Why do most of her clothes have stains on them?
