Days after a judge ruled that Britney Spears could only spend three days a week with her children, she reacted by leaving her two kids in her parked car with a court-appointed monitor (whose job description apparently does not include babysitting) as she shopped for $18,200 worth of chandeliers.
And that's just the tip of the iceberg.
Why does Britney Spears â€" even after having custody of her kids taken away â€" keep exhibiting such bizarre, highly questionable behavior when it comes to parenting? Simple: She's frickin' nuts, reports the newest Us Weekly!
Sources say the troubled pop "singer" does not seem to grasp the gravity of her custody case (there's a shock), and they blame her bizarre public behaviorÂ - her swapping clothes with a stranger, frequent trips to the L.A. club scene wearing no underwear, etc. - on psychological issues, not drugs.Â
"It's not substance abuse â€" it's mental!" a confidante says of Britney Spears.
Some suspect adult-onset ADD or depression, with one friend (Alli Sims? Sam Lutfi? Shannon Funk? Lucy Walsh?) saying, "Postpartum has always been a problem" after giving birth to Sean Preston, 2, and Jayden James, 1.
