Britney Spears’ parents are back together!

Britney Spears’s parents, Lynne and Jamie Spears, are reconciling eight years after their divorce.

They are back together and are doing well and happy,” a source tells PEOPLE. “[They’re] not remarried but back together.”

The couple, who divorced in 2002, were looking friendly on Saturday at Los Angeles lounge Boudoir. Onlookers at the lounge spotted Lynne and Jamie cheering and dancing as DJ Mr. Best spun Britney’s hits, like “Toxic” and “Gimme More.”

“They were in a great mood together,” says an onlooker. “They were laughing together – dancing and laughing [and] totally having fun.” (more…)

Britney Spears: The movie?

Lynne Spears

Britney Spears’ rise to stardom and subsequent descent into pop wreckdom may be turned into a Hollywood movie – if the singer’s mother Lynne has her way.

According to insiders, Lynne is convinced that her recently-published memoir Through The Storm will be a hit on the big screen.

“She’s pitching the book around to studios,” says a source close to the Spears matriarch.

It’s been reported that rising star Anna Faris is in the frame to play Britney, but Lynne has another – less obvious – choice in mind.

The source tells The Sun that “she even says she wants Julia Roberts to play her. It’s insane!”

Lynne Spears: “I had to do what I had to do.”


On daughter Britney Spears, Lynne points to the media as a source of the singer’s troubles, “Is it human nature to want to build somebody up so very, very big, and then actually enjoy tearing them to pieces? I want her to remember back when she was the happiest person she could be, and be that person. She’s almost there now.”

Lynne says her daughter Jamie Lynn broke the news to her that she was pregnant by writing her a note. “I blew it,” she says about her reaction — after first thinking it was a joke — but then faced the challenge head-on: “We got the biggest blessing through the toughest time.”

Lynne’s new book, Through the Storm: A Real Story of Fame and Family in a Tabloid World, tells a mother’s story of keeping her faith and keeping her family together. Lynne also gets candid about both her successes and her failures, “I didn’t feel very strong,” she says. “All I knew was at certain points I had to do what I had to do.”

On her role in her daughters’ careers, “I’m more or less a cheerleader,” she says. “Did I ever manage my children? No. Did I ever take any percentages of anything they ever did? No, I did not. I really don’t know how to do these things.”

Ultimately, after all her family’s been through, she says, “I just pray for smoother sailing.”

Lynne Spears thought Jamie Lynn’s pregnancy was a joke

Jamie Lynn & Lynne Spears

Britney Spears’ mom started to chuckle when she first learned her 16-year-old daughter Jamie Lynn was pregnant – because she thought it was a joke.

Lynne Spears has revealed the teenage actress handed her a note and told her to read it alone in the bathroom of the family’s home. It was the first time Spears realised her little girl was having a baby with her boyfriend Casey Aldridge – but she initially refused to believe what she read.

In an interview on Today show on Wednesday, Spears said, “I thought it was a joke… I kept waiting for the punchline.”

But the matriarch quickly realized it was no laughing matter when Aldridge refused to look at her as she came out of the bathroom.

She added, “I was just truly in shock and then I started to cry. And then she (Jamie Lynn) started consoling me at that point.”
The youngest Spears revealed she was pregnant in an interview in December. Lynne Spears details the day she learned all about the pregnancy, as well as other family highs and lows, in her new book Through The Storm.
