(Newser) – Britney Spears apparently has enough freedom from her dad to take a quickie trip to India—with her new love, the Mirror reports. The comeback kid, known for dating bad boys, has been seeing the choreographer of her "Womanizer" video, Bollywood dance instructor Sandip Soparrkar. The pair, who just spent 3 days together in Jodhpur, met earlier this year and have been dating for 3 weeks.

“For Christmas, Sandip—or Sandy as Britney calls him—presented her with a traditional Indian sari. She wore it during a candlelit dinner,” a source said. “Sandip is very down to earth and keeps Britney grounded. He's also quite spiritual and sensitive, which is a side of him she adores.”
