After a long period of of estrangement, Britney Spears finally grabbed the phone and called the one person she needed most:
the Domino's delivery guy her mom.
Lynne Spears immediately went into action, hopping on a flight on October 5 to L.A. from Kentwood, La., along with 16-year-old Jamie Lynne Spears.
Insiders say Britney Spears was "a bundle of
hard drugs nerves" that night as she waited for the arrival of her mother and l'il sister.
"She was extremely excited," says a pal. "She was shaking."
T.H. GOSSIP NOTE: That might just be withdrawal from crystal meth.
Regardless, Britney Spears has been in better spirits with mom Lynne Spears and sister Jamie Lynn Spears in town. Kind of funny that the pic of them together on the People Magazine cover here is actually two separate photos, however.
The Britney Spears clan: back together at last. Minus Britney's Spears kids, who she can't see because she's a chronic user of alcohol and drugs, of course.
"It must have taken a lot for Britney to let down her guard," says Spears' friend Robert Baker, head of the Millennium Dance Complex.
"She felt betrayed by her mom when she first went to rehab. But there are times when you just need your family more than anything."
If anyone needs a mom right now, it's Britney, who can perhaps appreciate Lynne Spears' own pain at being separated from her own flesh and blood.
Spears, who was labeled "a habitual, frequent and continuous" user of drugs and alcohol, is estranged from children Sean Preston and Jayden James, who are living with their father, Kevin Federline, until further notice.
