Something borrowed, something … leased?
Spears, 26, and Adnan Ghalib, 35, arrived at the Keyes Mercedes-Benz dealership in the San Fernando Valley on Friday afternoon, surrounded by the now-familiar pack of photographers that once contained Ghalib.
“They came in to get an estimate for a new car for him,” a sales associate says. “He drives a rental car now. … He was looking into the different lease and purchase options for sport cars.”
By the time they started talking business, Spears had covered up with a trench coat, the sales person says.
“She didn’t talk at all and it didn’t seem like she was getting the car for him,” the sales associate says.
