Britney Spears is dating a 6ft 8ins basketball star. The 25-year-old singer has reportedly fallen for Los Angeles Lakers player Luke Walton and has been showing her support courtside. Britney screamed Luke's name with the rest of his fans during the game against the Phoenix Suns on Sunday. A source said: "A stable successful man is the perfect medicine for Britney after her disastrous marriages. "It's early days but she seems content at last."
The mother-of-two has been seen at several basketball games since leaving rehab but has tried to keep her new romance under wraps. She even wore a number 24 jersey, the shirt worn by Luke's teammate Kobe Bryant, to fool people. Last month, Britney reached a 1 million divorce settlement with Kevin Federline. The couple are expected to share custody of their two sons, 18-month-old Sean Preston and Jayden James, six months.
