Britney Spears has publicly battled with her mother, Lynne Spears, and her ex-husband, Kevin Federline (their divorce became final two days ago).
Everybody wants out. Heck, even her cousin and former assistant, Alli Sims, has decided she's better off on her own than with her famous relative.
Yet the latest crisis in the singer's life hits even closer to home. Over the past year, Britney has subjected her children, Sean Preston, 22 months, and Jayden James, 10 months, to one meltdown after another - and put their own health at risk.
Sources tell Us Weekly, which features the tots on its cover, that Spears' family and friends (what few remain) are very concerned about Britney's mothering skills.
Case in point: The tooth fairy may be making early visits to Sean P.
"He's having dental problems because Britney just shoves a bottle of juice or soda in his mouth all the time to stop him from crying," a family friend says of her eldest child.
Another source says that, back in April, Britney Spears "asked an L.A. dentist if he would whiten her kid's teeth!"
The dentist refused.
The bizarre behavior doesn't stop there: Spears and her kids became high-end squatters July 22, when they toured a Pacific Palisades estate on the market for $6.5 million.
Upon their arrival, her bodyguard (no word on whether this was Julio Camera or some other rent-athug) removed the FOR SALE sign, then went to her Beverly Hills address to fetch some of their belongings. The result was a nightmare, with Spears and her kids trashing the house before money exchanged hands.
"She ate tacos on the bedroom floor," a source says of the home. "She got crumbs and grease everywhere. She let her babies and her dog roam the floor. She left the bed a mess. I don't know what's wrong with her."
Another stunning excerpt:
"When Britney and Kevin were first married, she objected to his smoking around the kids, the insider notes, but now 'she smokes like a chimney in front of them.' Even worse, when Brit misplaces her pack of cigarettes, she'll actually turn to Sean and say, â€˜Baby, where are Mama's lollipops?' Sean Preston runs, gets her cigarettes and brings them back to her."
Good grief. Now, for some photo evidence from just 24 hours ago. The wayward mom took Sean Preston for a spin in her Mini Cooper - and was all over the road!
Looks like the train wreck is looking for a car wreck.
Unlike Nicole Richie, however, Britney Spears doesn't need to be high on weed and Vicodin to drive on the wrong side of the road. Pray for Sean Preston and Jayden James, people. Pray.
