After a few days of laying low Britney was out light fixture shopping again last night before grabbing dinner with her friend Sam in LA. Yesterday was full of all sorts of bad news for Britney — coming in at No. 2 and being ordered to pay for Kevin's legal bills. Plus, Kevin's lawyer will be back in court tomorrow claiming that Britney hasn't been complying with the drug tests in a timely manner. In the end though, that's just more to add on to Britney's crazy year. Just think, one year ago today (seriously) Britney filed for divorce from Kevin. That's kinda crazy, right? Now, Britney's mom Lynne is speaking out about her daughter to Life & Style. Here's what she had to say:
"I blame myself...What mother wouldn’t?...I wish I’d been there more while she was touring...But I couldn’t be. I had the other kids [Britney’s brother, Bryan, now 30, and sister Jamie-Lynn, now 16] to look after...I didn’t raise my children to have Hollywood careers...This all just exploded in my face, and big dreams became big headaches....I do blame myself."
While it's sad to hear Lynne's words, at least she realizes that childhood fame (especially on Britney's level) can lead to a very, very difficult transition into adulthood. I just hope that this isn't some sort of self-promotion for that supposed parenting book she is writing — Britney needs more help than that.
