According to London's The Sun, Britney Spears' aunt, Chanda McGovern, says that her family fears they will "turn on the TV and find out she is dead."
So she's not too concerned that her niece might die, just that she might learn about it on TV? It's true, that could really ruin a dinner party.
Chanda McGovern told the British newspaper that she's worried Britney Spears' self-destructive behavior is nearing a breaking point. And apparently feels that getting lots of money by talking to a tabloid is a great way to help Brit out.
Seriously folks. We understand Matt Encinias getting to second base with Britney in a drunken haze and then selling out. But her aunt? Hey, at least she can pack lightly for her upcoming vacation - the weather's nice and hot in hell.
Speaking of which, you guys check out Reaper yet? Good show!
Anyway, here's what McGovern says about her niece: "We are worried things are going to spiral out of control... whether it be intentionally or accidental, there may be a drug overdose. We are worried about suicidal tendencies in her."
McGovern married Britney Spears' uncle 14 years ago. An 11-year-old Britney sang at their wedding. This was before she developed an aversion to pants.
Chanda McGovern confessed that her family has been pleading for her to take a break from L.A. and come back to her hometown of Kentwood, Louisiana.
"She has not got a backbone, a family member to help her... Her mother was her backbone. Since they've fallen out, everything has gone to hell."
McGovern says she wasn't surprised that an L.A. judge handed custody of Sean and Jayden, Spears' sons, over to their dad, Kevin Federline, on Monday.
"The kids came second and her party life has always come first, so it really wasn't a shock that the kids have been taken away from her."
McGovern, herself a mother of three, even expressed great disapproval over her 25-year-old niece's choice of underwear ... or, more accurately, lack thereof: "Not wearing panties is not something a true southern girl would do."
Well, at least this pathetic sellout relative got one thing right. Britney Spears, no underwear just ain't appropriate when you be gone clubbin'! Ding dang, girl!
