For advice on how to get re-hinged, lunatic ranter Mel Gibson has apparently been turning to ... Britney Spears. The disgraced star, 54, has been pouring his heart out to the poptart, sharing his fears that his recorded rants to his babymama Oksana Grigorieva are destroying his career, Britney has told her pals. “Mel has been talking to her a lot,” Britney's friend tells In Touch. “They speak on the phone all the time, usually late at night."
Gibson "was one of the only people who reached out to help Britney when she was at her lowest point, and she believes that demonstrates what a loving man he is," adds the chum. (For an interesting Mel text message expressing his concerns that he wasn't "safe" around Oksana, click here.)
