New York, May 16 : This might look-like an odd companionship, but reports have emerged that recovering popstar Britney Spears and actor Mel Gibson have taken a flight to Costa Rica for a vacation together.
If reports from the show "Entertainment Tonight" are to be believed, the duo hopped on a private flight to Costa Rica on the morning of May 14.
Sources have revealed that Gibson, a married father of seven, wanted to take the 'Toxic' star and her father, Jamie, for a small vacation so that they get some relief by staying away from the limelight for a while.
Twice this year, Britney was admitted to hospital for psychiatric concerns while she was constantly grabbing headlines regarding a custody battle for her children with ex-hubby Kevin Federline.
Both Spears and Gibson used to live in the same Malibu neighbourhood and in March they were also spotted dining together at a Los Angeles-area restaurant.
However, Gibson's publicist did not reveal much and just said that he knows nothing about his reported meeting with Britney.
