HERE is the first picture of BRITNEY SPEARS with her new man, badboy FRED DURST from rock band LIMP BIZKIT.
My snapper spotted them sneaking out of Los Angeles hangout the Latin Lounge.
It proves Brit, surrounded by minders as she makes her way down the back stairs behind a pal, is hellbent on making the move from pop princess to rock chick.
Gone are the elegant outfits of the past, replaced by grubby denims and headgear that looks strangely like a cowboy hat. Bringing up the rear, nu-metal star Fred sports his usual clobber – a no-frills white T-shirt and beanie hat.
Britney’s look is a world away from the girl who popped up nearly four years ago with hit Baby One More Time.
Then she was a fresh-faced teenybopper in school uniform who boasted she was a virgin and dated fresh-faced boy band star JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE.
Now she has dumped the squeaky-clean image and has been spotted smoking and stumbling out of nightclubs and says she is not a virgin.
This took the fizz out of her £75million sponsorship deal with Pepsi and they dumped her last month.
The only one thing missing before Mission Turnaround was complete? An unhinged boyfriend – enter party animal Fred.
My exclusive snap comes after reports Britney snogged Justin at another club – after throwing up in the toilets, obviously.
If it comes down to fisticuffs I know who my money is on.
