How much would you spend for a piece of Britney Spears?

Assuming she wouldn't sleep with you on the first date. Just kidding.

The "singer" is planning to auction off diaries and a slew of other personal belongings, her friend Sam Lutfi tells celebrity photo agency X17.

Sam Lutfi says that Britney Spears would like to donate proceeds "to a children's cause" that she'll announce at a later date.

Ironic, since she can't be bothered with her own children.

It is unknown when the auction will kick off and what Britney Spears items will be up for grabs. Maybe she should just sell off poor Sean Preston and Jayden James Federline while she's at it. Talk about a win-win situation!

"It's something Britney wanted to do to counterbalance all the rumors and negativity in the press," Sam Lutfi tells the celebrity photo agency.

"All she can do is be herself, love her kids and do small things like this to help people," Sam Lutfi said, apparently leaving out "stop parading around with no underwear and getting hammered every night of the week."

After losing custody of Sean Preston and Jayden James and dropping them off with Kevin Federline, going tanning, and finally stopping by the DMV, the great Britney Spears checked into Beverly Hills' Peninsula Hotel.

Her friend Sam Lufti - best known for getting into a physical altercation while getting served in Spears' custody fight - was there, and tells Us Weekly that she remains optimistic about regaining custody of the boys soon.

"She is doing okay," Sam Lufti said. "It has been a rough day. But she is feeling very optimistic about the future."

A source close to Britney Spears says her optimism comes from the fact the Monday decision to give K-Fed custody was merely the result of scheduling conflicts that kept Spears from showing up for court-mandated drug testing.

Some of our staff members know from experience that it's hard to find the time to give a blood sample twice a week in between all the trips to the DMV, tanning salons and various nightclubs that a person must make.

"There were scheduling conflicts and errors in communication as to times and places for drug tests, et cetera, but they're all squared away now," the source says. "Britney is hoping a judge will reverse the order as of Wednesday, now that she is making steps to follow through on what they have asked."

Sam Lufti, who took Britney Spears to the DMV to, at long last, get her a valid California license has been taking care of the scheduling for the troubled singer.

"Sam Lufti is arranging for Britney's drug tests. He's getting her back on track. Everyone is optimistic about her regaining custody," says a source.

Still, another friend of Spears' has a different story about the 25-year-old slow moving train wreck pop-star's mindset, saying: "She's so scared. For Britney, [losing Sean and Jayden] was her realest moment ever... She doesn't know what to do."

The concerned friend adds, "She is going hit an all time low."
