Britney Spears has been romantically linked to a new man - who has a seven-months pregnant girlfriend.

The 22-year-old TOXIC singer - who hit headlines last year (03) when reports emerged she was dating her married back-up dancer and father-to-be COLUMBUS SHORT - has now been linked to dancer KEVIN FEDERLINE, 22, who has a two-year-old daughter and a son on the way with former MOESHA star Shar Jackson.

The pair were seen partying together at various Hollywood hotspots last week (ends23APR04), as well as enjoying a beach outing together and spending private time at Britney's Beverly Hills Hotel bungalow before she made her way to London to kick off the European leg of her ONYX HOTEL tour.

But their liaisons have left 27-year-old actress Jackson less then impressed.

On Monday (26APR04), she told America's US WEEKLY, "I just found out (about Britney) today. He called me and said he didn't want me to read about it somewhere before he told me.

"He's going to come over tonight and we're talking about it. We haven't broken up - yet."

But Jackson, who met the pop superstar two years ago at 'N Sync's CHALLENGE FOR THE CHILDREN basketball game in Las Vegas, refuses to get angry about the situation.

She says of Britney, "I don't have a problem with her. She's great. But now I should have a talk with her. Being seven months pregnant, I can't afford to be stressed out."
