Adnan Ghalib is getting ready to “leak” provocative pictures of Britney Spears for a large payday from news outlets, according to the latest bit from the Rumor Mill.

A spywitness tells MSNBC:

“Photos are already on the market, and although they’re tame, who’s to say what the next round will hold,” said a concerned friend of the pop star.

“It’s not as if Britney’s judgment is very good right now, he could really take advantage of her. Her MTV performance could actually end up looking tasteful, if things go really bad,” said another snitch.

“We have literally run out of ideas as to what to do to protect Britney,” said one person close to the family. “Who knows what will happen next.”
