Mel Gibson had dinner with…Britney?!

The odd couple

Yes, it's true. Saturday night with a group of friends, Britney Spears and Mel Gibson met up for some dinner. Now, as odd as this pair sounds, they actually know each other from the past.

The odd coupleGibson and Spears are former neighbors and the actor's wife apparently felt, they as adults, needed to join the family-like confine surrounding her.

Spears must have felt delighted to be embraced by someone in the Hollywood community that has largely supported her from offer but offered little help.

What's so interesting to me about this dinner-date with old friends of odd backgrounds is what could Mel Gibson possibly have to tell Britney about staying on the straight and now? The last time Gibson was in the news was because he was on a drunken rant about Jews and their role in ruining his world.

But hey, can't former neighbors get together and just have dinner?

Not in Hollywood, everything has a reason.

Joined with a group of other friends, the pair ate Russian food at Los Angeles eatery Romanov.

In other Britney news…the restraining order against former friend/manager/hanger-on Sam Lufti was extended for another 30 days.
