It was a family affair Saturday night as Lynne Spears hung out with Britney Spears and her two kiddies, Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1, for an overnight visit at the troubled singer's home in Studio City, Calif.
THG NOTE: In the span of just a few years, Britney Spears has gone from the biggest star in the world to a train wreck who can't have her own children stay overnight without one of her own parents present. Just saying.
In town since Wednesday, Lynne Spears took Britney out for some mother-daughter bonding, shopping at the True Religion warehouse and Pottery Barn on Friday before enjoying a "girls dinner" of salad, sushi rolls, and fish.
"Britney walked in with a big smile," says an observer. "She was gorgeous, and I have never seen her in a better mood. She was laughing the whole time she was here. Britney seemed to have the best time hanging out with her mom and friends."
Meanwhile, Britney's dad, Jamie Spears, who is her legal conservator as she receives treatment for myriad mental illnesses and is usually by her side 24-7, spent the weekend at his new house in Santa Monica, Calif.
Soon, Lynne will probably return to Louisiana, where l'il Jamie Lynn Spears just gave birth to baby Maddie Briann, and is probably in the process of getting knocked up again right about now. Girl seriously hates condoms.
