SUVA, Oct 18 (AFP) – Pop diva Britney Spears arrived at a tropical Fijian island hideaway Monday with her new husband Kevin Federline, Fiji Television reported.

Spears secretly wed dancer Federline last month, but failed to formalise the marriage for nearly three weeks, prompting speculation that the nuptials were fake.

According to the Fiji news report, Spears flew into Nadi International Airport on a private jet and was taken to Turtle Island, a resort which specialises in weddings and honeymoons and where basic Fijian-style lodges start at 1,975 US dollars a night.

The 200-hectare (500 acres) Nanuya Levu Island, as its formally known, is owned by eccentric American millionaire Richard Evanson.

Last week Spears and Federline filed their marriage licence with Los Angeles authorities, nearly three weeks after their wedding ceremony.

The blond bombshell’s spokeswoman Leslie Sloane said the document had been filed well within the official 90-day limit, making the union final.

People magazine said the multi-millionaire singer and her far less rich back-up dancer beau formalized their union after signing a prenuptial aimed at protecting Spears’ millions.

The couple, who began dating in April, married at a surprise ceremony at a friend’s Los Angeles home on September 18. But Us magazine later said Spears, 22, and Federline, 26, had staged a “faux wedding.”

It claimed they delayed formalizing their marriage because their lawyers were still wrangling over how much cash Federline would be entitled to if the marriage collapsed.

But the singer, famed for such hits as “Oops, I did it again” and for her 55-hour Las Vegas marriage to a childhood friend in January, rebuked media claims she had not tied the knot.

“I’m really upset that somebody someplace decides to write a false headline about a special day that I’ve dreamed about since I was a little girl,” she told People, which reportedly agreed to pay two million dollars for the rights to pictures of the wedding.
