But a loyal boyfriend he may not be -- the Web site of Ghalib's employer features what appears to be a minute-by-minute blog of Spears' trip from her Studio City home to the hospital.
While Ghalib frequently uses the site to discuss his ties with Spears, it was unclear whether Ghalib or another FinalPixx employee had posted the latest details.
On Jan. 23, Ghalib's wife, Azlynn Elizabeth Berry, filed for legal separation citing irreconcilable differences, according to The Associated Press. The couple had been married for four years before Ghalib was first spotted by Spears' side.
Alli Sims, Britney's one-time assistant and friend so close she's nicknamed "cousin Alli," has been a less vital player in Spears' entourage as of late. But nevertheless, Sims showed up at the hospital to visit Britney, according to TMZ.com.
"Sims in the past has acted like the go-between," Drew said. "She does seem to get through to Britney, but often times she'll just go along with whatever Britney wants."
Just days before Britney's hospitalization, Sims appeared in a Jan. 28 article published by People Magazine, in which she said that she still talks to the singer regularly.
"I'm not saying that everything is fine," Sims, 26, told the magazine. "Obviously, she's worried about stuff, like we all are. She's hanging in there. I'm not worried. She'll get back. She'll be fine."
In the same article Sims said that she didn't like Lutfi's "vibe" and knows him only from when he "followed us around for eight months," referring to the time when she was seen frequently around town with Britney, followed by the usual clan of paparazzi.
Sims also told Us Weekly that she isn't so crazy about Spears' boyfriend, Ghalib, either.
"I do not think Adnan is a good person," Sims told Us Weekly. "I think he only has bad intentions. He has given me a weird feeling and creeped me out. I wish he would just go away."
If nobody else, Britney's pup London loves her unconditionally.
The Yorkshire terrier, purchased by the pop star last summer for a reported $3,000, has been Spears' constant companion.
During her recent breakdown in Los Angeles, Spears was photographed clutching London tightly as she sobbed.
