Shopping Is the Best Medicine for Brit

2/12/2008 8:09 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Lynne and Britney Spears did a little mother/daughter bonding this afternoon on Melrose Ave. -- and it didn't involve lawyers, doctors, or restraining orders!

The pair got their shop on at Miss 5150 Sixty in Los Angeles. Considering all of Brit's finances are controlled by the conservators these days, do you think mama footed the bill?

Wow , It must be nice to be perfect. All these people bashing the spears family have never made mistakes before. Before the parents step in everyone bashed them for not stepping in. Now that they have stepped in and helped her, they are just after her money. How sad to be so judgemental to a family that you don't even know. Thankyou # 45 just because papa spears as control of britney's money, doesn't mean he can spend it!!!!!!! I'm glad to see britneys world calming down and hope she gets her kids back. She is moving in the right direction.

I’m one that didn’t jump on the bipolar bandwagon, leaning more toward drug abuse as many others.

Lately, I’ve been picking up on a new theme on the various gossip sites. The new theme is that Britney has mentally and emotionally regress to a child of about 8 years old.

There are stories circulating that she doesn’t understand what is going on around her. Other stories claim that she doesn’t remember her children and believes that they are dolls that she used to have.

One site claims that Adnan now calls Kevin for updates on her kids, because Britney does not call.

I’m not a mental health professional, but to me this doesn’t seem to be bipolar. To me, it seems that the stage is being set to extend the conservatorship indefinitely.

I really don’t think the custody case is even in play anymore. It’s been decided the Kevin has 100% custody, so she really doesn’t need any lawyers for that. One day, she may have strictly supervised visitation … but remember the stories claim that she doesn’t even know she has kids.

Many there is a speck of truth in these stories. She seemed pretty content that mommy took her shopping for new clothes. There were no meltdowns or tantrums reported.

Well I am glad to hear that she is teaching kids to dance and shopping with her mom. Seriously it is way better than her going to Rite Aide in a pink wig and driving around with low lifes like Sam!! She seems to be on the road to recovery and I say good for her!! Also, good for her parents for helping her out.

Kevin did say that she would be able to see the kids later--much later. I think he knows that Brit is not going to get better overnight, and he also said that she could see the kids with her mom while he is out of town. I think she doesn't buy the boys clothes is because well she does. It is mostly her money that keeps FedEx afloat and those kids always look like they have clean clothes that fit them well.

RE comment: 47. "The pop star, 26, put her personal troubles behind her and decided to surprise the kids by teaching them dance routines to songs including Madonna's Material Girl and True Blue.
Robert Baker, the co-owner of Millennium dance studios, was impressed with the way an upbeat Spears interacted with the children......And Britney - she's just drinking it up." Posted at 7:46PM on Feb 12th 2008 by go brit

OH puh-LEEZE.

1. She plays with the kids because they are the only ones that don't intimidate her. Not because she misses her kids as someone suggested. Her IQ is a their level.
2. Millenium is enjoying the heck out of publicizing Spears' trips to the studio.....more patrons, more publicity.
3. She's hardly a good dancer anyway. Show me a Rockette - now THAT's a good dancer!

Kat, honey, I'm guessing you're about 12 or maybe 13? Hate to disappoint you but it doesn't look like Spears will ever regain her popularity.

I don't think there's a reliable source either about any disorder she suffering, but I also dont agree with any articles you have quoted. Writing about Brtiney sells mags/papers faster than if you were to give them away for free! And they will spend forecer theorising and making things up!

Kevin has custody - but the case is not resolved. Thus the lawyers and the drama. She had visitation, with 50/50 custody possible again if she submitted psych evals. What got her visitation suspended was an all to eager cop who called the ambulance in early Jan - probably eating up the "is britney crazy" press. A police spokesman even said - to msn i think - that there was no basis for the call. On the other hand there are also strange reports of her behaviour (Sam's doing?), Who knows. Facts is both cedars and ucla doctors let her go. So whether she has a condition or not - we know she's not loopy.

I would say that its stress depression and trauma all coming out in one. She had to grow up quickly and now in a sense she's regressed. But not to an 8 year old. She's just playing out rebellious teenage tantrums (that she couldn't back then because her team ran a tight ship and she wanted the totality of her dream.) And she ws able to do it in the last 6 months because there were nothing but yes men around her - no-one to stop her. That rebellion and the trauma all collided into one big freakshow. She probably goes home and laughs her a$$ off at what the media write.

This calmness, bonding sessions, and dance classes are just good pr . Maybe her mother?! Maybe her. In any case. I don't belive she's a dumb blonde (and i know im gonna get comments for this) - silly, yes, for letting things get out of hand, but even she knows that there's a point even Britney Spears can't come back from - well at least now she does!
And hey, maybe a few ounces of sense from her parnets will wake her up!

Hey, Diane T - my mom was a Rockette, too! She loved those days and the girls themselves. She "retired" when she married and started a family. One of the fondest memories I have is as a child my mom and I would go to the Radio City Music Hall Christmas show every year, see the movie, Santa, and the Rockettes. Then she'd take me backstage to see her friends who were just the nicest people. They really fussed over me. So down to earth they were. The Rockettes have REAL talent that took decades of training and hard work. Too bad people don't appreciate them like they do drug-abusing celebrities.

Hey britaculous,

Maybe she is not crazy, but she is sure playing along with it. After her “stand-off”, there is no way she will ever get custody back, and I believe that she really doesn’t want it anyway.

She certainly is playing the “I’m a little girl card”, who knows why.

It seems that she doesn’t care if her breast are exposed because she doesn’t believe she has breasts.

I've been to Radio City Music Hall too. Been in entertainment for 25 years.

Yea, Dian T, I know. I'm not disagreeing with your stance. It would be hard too. But reading what the papers write is sometimes more nauseating than that, you know....
