Britney SpearsBritney Spears wants to adopt a tsunami orphan. The singer - who recently filed for divorce from Kevin Federline - fell for a four-year-old boy called Wang, from Bali, who lost his entire family in the 2004 Indian Ocean tragedy, after reading about his plight.

A source said: "She instantly wanted to help him and is sponsoring him until she can find out more. And she has even written to officials seeking advice. The tsunami disaster was a tragedy very close to Britney's heart and she has dedicated a lot of her time to its charities."

Britney - who has two children with her estranged husband, Sean Preston, 15-months-old and three-month-old Jayden James - has even consulted celebrity pal Madonna, who recently adopted a Malawi boy. The source added: "She is even in talks with Madonna about it and is taking it very seriously."

The 25-year-old star's decision to adopt an underprivileged child is part of her plan to make a fresh start in the new year, following her bitter split from Kevin. The source said: "Britney's had a turbulent year and wants 2007 to be brilliant. As well as wanting to look after little Wang, she is determined to make a music comeback with a difference."
