This hot piece of celebrity gossip has been bandied about before in recent weeks, but we're just coming across it - Britney Spears apparently thinks her mother, Lynne Spears, may be sleeping with Kevin Federline.
Earlier this fall, it was reported that Britney Spears suspected her mother of sleeping with her ex-husband. Now the rumors are being rehashed.
A friend of the younger Spears tells Star Magazine: "In a fit of rage, Britney accused her mom of sleeping with Kevin!"
"Britney doesn't know up from down right now. She's so confused and angry, she told [Lynne Spears] that she was backstabbing, that she was probably sleeping with Kevin Federline just to hurt her feelings. Lynne is deeply hurt that her own daughter would viciously accuse her of something so terrible."
Britney Spears and Lynne Spears have a very normal relationship.
Many of Britney Spears' friends (possibly Alli Sims, Sam Lutfi, Lucy Walsh), feel that these accusations further prove her mental instability of late."She can't seem to cope with anything," says a concerned pal of Britney's. "She cries and says she feels like everyone is against her. I think she's extremely paranoid. She buys puppies, because they fulfill some desperate need insider her, but the thrill is short-lived, so she goes back and gets another one."
"She goes out drinking and clubbing (usually in no underwear) because it dulls the pain of fighting with her mom and divorcing Kevin. She can't see it, but the partying is making it worse. Even though Britney's friends and family aren't getting along with her right now, they are really concerned. One day she's laughing and bouncing with energy and the next day she's in despair and in tears."
"Her apparent paranoia about her mother and Kevin seems to be a product of her current mental state. All that Lynne and Kevin hope for right now is that Britney will start seeing a therapist to get to the root of her issues."
Recently, Lynne Spears has publicly placed the blame for Britney Spears'
insanity behavior on herself: "I blame myself... What mother wouldn't?"
"I wish I'd been there more while she was touring, but I couldn't be. I had the other kids [Bryan Spears, 30, and Jamie-Lynn Spears, 16] to look after."
