Rumor has it that Britney Spears is now on the lookout for a suitable red carpet escort, with manager Larry Rudolph and father Jamie Spears giving her a helping hand to find the right guy. Reports have linked her with possible dates like Benji Madden, Michael Phelps and Jesse Metcalfe.

The two had a fun chemistry during the lead-up to MTV’s VMAs this year, filming a series of hilarious TV spots in preparation for the awards.

Britney Brand."


"Oh, gosh!" Brit replied with a giggle.
