Britney Spears faced fresh humiliation today as her ex-husband was spotted cosying up to party pal Paris Hilton.
After a traumatic year which saw the Gimme More singer go into complete meltdown, Kevin Federline appears to be growing worryingly close to the jailbird socialite.
Britney and Paris, both 26, have been a virtually inseparable sight on the Los Angeles party circuit for the last few months.
But this weekend, the hotel heiress chose to ditch her troubled friend and headed for one of their favourite haunts Lax on her own.
If she was feeling lonely, however, the ever-gallant K-Fed quickly rushed to her side to keep her company.
Onlookers said he reportedly became so excited when he caught a glimpse of the pouting property princess he repeatedly shouted her name and then cosied up close to give her a kiss on the cheek.
As he whispered intimately into her ear, both of them began giggling.
"It looked as though they were getting quite friendly," one onlooker said.
The sight of K-Fed and Paris together is a dismal end to a catastrophic year for Britney.
After months of erratic behaviour, including shaving off all her hair, she divorced the former dancer in July and he now has custody of their sons Sean Preston, two, and Jayden James, one.
As she celebrated her 26th birthday earlier this month there were rumours that she was pregnant again though the singer has not confirmed the report.
