Singer spotted frolicking in the sea

Britney Spears has been snapped enjoying the sun in Costa Rica.

The troubled singer jetted out to Mel Gibson’s 400-acre ranch in Central America on Friday with her dad Jamie and Mel’s wife Robyn.

And onlookers say she is having a great time eating well and splashing around in the sea before she starts training hard for her world tour next year.

‘She feels totally chilled and that’s more important to her than body image right now,’ a source tells the News of The World.

‘Hard work’s around the corner so this is her last chance to eat, drink and relax.’

Britney, 26, was seen out with Mel last March, when they dined at Russian restaurant Romanov in Studio City.

He has also met up with her family a number of times after she was hospitalised in February.
