(showbizspy.com) - Britney Spears is back with her paparazzo ex Adnan Ghalib, according to tabloid reports.
Spears - who dated and split from the British-born photog earlier this year - is secretly communicating with Ghalib behind her dad's back, reports the National Enquirer.
A source tells the publication, "Britney and Adnan are constantly on the phone or text messaging each other.
"Britney gets excited when he calls or texts because he lavishes her with compliments.
"Adnan searches the Internet for photos of her and then calls and comments on her outfits and her hair, and she loves it.
"She also wears the promise ring he gave her when they were dating."
The source adds that Britney's ex-husband, Kevin Federline, is not happy about her reunion with Adnan: "Kevin is clear about one thing, though.
"If Britney goes to Adnan, she will never get back custody of the kids, and she can forget about ever taking them traveling with her."
