A bikini-clad Britney Spears got her picture taken this weekend while relaxing and soaking up the sun on a Costan Rican beach where she was reportedly staying at actor Mel Gibson's property.
"She did it again," the La Nacion daily said Sunday in a play on Spears' 1999 chart-busting hit "Oops! ... I Did It Again."
"At five minutes to midday (Saturday), the artist appeared on scene on an ATV (all terrain vehicle) driving from the home of Mel Gibson, who invited her to spend a few days in Costa Rica" at his 163-hectare (402-acre) spread in the Pacific coast resort town of Samara, the daily said.
The story included several photos of the troubled pop star on Barrigona beach, in a bikini and sunglasses.
Spears was in the company of her father, Jamie Spears -- who apparently told the paparazzi they could shoot all they wanted as long as they kept at a 50-meter (yard) distance -- and a young couple, the daily said.
Gibson or his wife, Robyn Moore, were nowhere to be seen, it added.
Spears, 26, appears happier since a Los Angeles court on May 6 gave her more visitation time with her two children, who are in the custody of her ex-husband Kevin Federline since the couple split in 2006, amid her spiraling personal problems and fears for her mental health.
Spears shot to superstardom in late 1998 with her smash-hit debut album "Baby One More Time," which she followed with another chart-topping success the following year, "Oops! ... I Did It Again."
