Talk about an odd pairing! Britney Spears and Mel Gibson are said to be jetting off to Costa Rica together as we speak! They left on a private plane, along with Britney's dad Jamie, this morning. Mel has a home in Costa Rica where they will all be staying.
It seems so random, but since Britney and Mel are neighbors in Malibu, maybe they have gotten to know each other over the years. Either way, it's probably good for Britney to get away for a little bit, although her kids aren't able to go along since she needs a special permit to take them out of the country.
