Wearing a black suit and his trademark landing-strip goatee, Ghalib, 40, testified in a posh British accent that his relationship with the pop star changed from work-related to romantic beginning in December 2007.

Ghalib, who was subpoenaed to appear in the case, denied he ever saw Spears’s former pal Sam Lutfi hide cell phones from the singer or withhold access to her dog, London.
