Britney Not Dating George Maloof

August 17, 2008 By Jordan Miller

Damn, I didn’t even get a chance to post the rumor before it was confirmed false! The Daily Mail is reporting that Britney is dating George Maloof, owner of the Palms Hotel and the Sacramento Kings basketball team: “Friends say she’s dumped her photographer boyfriend Adnan Ghalib to be reunited with her former lover, billionaire hotelier George Maloof. [They] flew off to Cabo San Lucas in Mexico last week and were spotted relaxing in the sun by the pool.” I’d take Maloof over the milky bowl of soup any day.

According to the site, they got back together after George promised to relaunch Britney’s career. “I’m sure George’s billions will come in very useful now that Britney’s father is in control of her assets,” says my source. What the eff are they trying to insinuate? Doesn’t matter, because the report is false.

An insider reveals to that Britney and George Maloof’s relationship is “strictly platonic.” The two are friends. Jamie, Britney’s father, is an ex-employee and family friend of the Maloofs – previously working as a personal chef in Las Vegas. Jamie has since quit his job as a chef to manage his eldest daughter’s affairs in Los Angeles through a court-monitored conservatorship.
