According to a report set for publication in this week's Star magazine, Britney is a huge supporter and admirer of Sanjaya.
"Britney started watching American Idol when she was in rehab. She became a huge Sanjaya fan and thinks the two of them can make beautiful music together," the National Ledger quoted a source as saying.
And now that Sanjaya has been voted out of the show, he will have ample time to spare.
According to the report, Britney, striving to make a comeback, wants to take advantage of Sanjaya's vast pre-teen fan base.
"Britney wants to cash in on some of the Sanjaya mania because he is getting so much attention right now she feels that if the two of them record a record together it will help get her back on the chars," the source said.
The report states that the Toxic singer has already asked her agents to contact Sanjaya.
