You probably know about B. Spears' new boy-toy, Adnan Ghalib. Judging from this photo published in The Daily Mail I am starting to wonder if he is a mole bent on corrupting Hollywood so that even the kuffar will become outraged and revolt against the haram that our entertainment industry produces....


On the other hand, one must wonder if Adnan Ghalib has become an irtidad, an apostate to Islam, judging from his ostentatious wearing of a cross in public places (wearing jewelry for a man is haram in any case). Since Ghalib and B. Spears have also engaged in extra-marital sexual relations in public one could also contend that he should be put under other sanctions for violating the precepts of sharia, though such rulings would be contingent upon the possibility that there were Muslim male witnesses to the act in question.
