With her custody battle going downhill and her psychological stability in question, Britney Spears is prescribing her own type of therapy: going on vacation. The pop star headed to Rosarito Beach in Baja California, Mexico with a group of friends, among them her eternal paparazzo pal Adnan Ghalib.

According to the local Ensenada newspaper El Vigia, the pair arrived at the Rosarito Beach hotel around 3:00 p.m. on Wednesday in black Cadillac Escalade. The 26-year-old singer checked into a junior suite costing $235 dollars a night.

“When I saw who it was, I asked for a picture and an autograph, but she didn’t do it,” a hotel employee said.

According to reports, Spears hit up a gift shop, where she bought a knockoff Gucci wallet. Ghalib, 35, bought a rosary. Together they spent around $60.

“She looked serious and haggard,” a sales clerk told the paper. “She didn’t have makeup on.”
