Britney to go home with mom

Britney's mom Lynne & brother Bryan leaving the hospitalWhen Britney Spears has finished her 72-hour stint in the Los Angeles hospital where she’s being held on a “5150” (meaning she’s considered a danger to herself and/or others), she will be released into her mother’s care and taken home to Louisiana. Spears’ lawyer Michael Flanagan told, “Lynne is extremely concerned for her daughter and would like to take Britney back home to Louisiana and get her out of Hollywood. Brit has an amazing support system in Louisiana. Lynne was holding up reasonably well, but her first priority and concern right now is with her daughter and helping her through this very tough situation that she is in.” Britney’s younger sister, Jamie Lynn, who is pregnant, is also currently living under her mother’s care in their family home in Louisiana.

    Sounds like the right thing to do. A visit from former flame Justin Timberlake wouldn’t hurt, either.

    Too bad this so called mother didn’t do more for both girls a long time ago. They say its never too late but in this case I am afrad its too little too late Mom.

    Good God, Lynne is the reason these girls are such a mess, and they are both going home with her to get better? What’s wrong with this picture?

    How did she finish her 72 hours? They only took her away YESTERDAY MORNING, what’s up with that?

    “How did she finish her 72 hours? They only took her away YESTERDAY MORNING”

    She did 72 CELEBRITY HOURS, which differ from our own.

  6. Blake • February 1, 2008 @ 4:09 PM

    I’m happy for her.

    This says “When she’s done” aka she’s not done yet, stop using this as an excuse to bash people.

    Sorry, I’m really glad for her.

    You know what? I bashed Lynne in the article about her raising Jamie Lynn’s baby and, as a parent myself, I feel it was wrong. Kids don’t come with a guarantee. We parents do our best to raise our kids to become respectful members of society and, sometimes kids don’t turn out to be so respectful. They make some bad decisions….I did too. I’m sure alot of you reading this did too. Parents should not be punished for what their children do as adults. In fact, Britney was fine up until she was in her twenties and, Jamie Lynn, I believe is just crying out for some attention. She is the baby of the family and always had all the attention she wanted and then some, up until Britney got married, had kids, got divorced and then went over the edge. I just hope that when and if my children make bad decisions that I don’t get blamed for being a ‘bad parent’.

  10. theoriginalkaren • February 2, 2008 @ 12:40 AM

    I certainly won’t blame you.

  11. Gina • February 2, 2008 @ 10:04 AM

    It’s too bad no one stepped up to bat for her a long time ago. As parents we know if things arent quite right with our kids very early in the game. When drugs, depression etc are involved, we know something is up by their attitude, sliding marks etc. We dont just sit back and ponder the situation, we take action to steer them back on track. Whether we choose to keep our blinders on and live in denial or if we just don’t give a sh*t is determined by the type of parent or parenting skills we have. That poor excuse of a mother should have gotten the situation under control years ago, not AFTER her daughters completely ruined their lives. Its a little late for June Cleavers intervention now. That b*tch is going to end up being nothing more than a babysitter (of three kids soon) on 24 hr suicide watch. Poor baby, no more lying around tanning her skanky ass.

  12. Matthew • February 2, 2008 @ 3:03 PM

    I don’t know if sending her home with mom is the right idea but getting help for her mental state/issue is the most important thing right now.

  13. Poppa John • February 2, 2008 @ 6:53 PM

    Nancy said it best. The mother is not the problem. Money and Fame are the underlying factors here. The Media blew up everything Britney did as a young “virgin.” With that kind of misguided focus it is no wonder that the girl has gone berserk. There was just too much Media attention given to her, plain and simple. The media is certainly to blame for a lot of her problems, no doubt about that. Britney did not start going bonkers until she was at least 23 or 24. Her mother can’t be held accountable for that. Britney even stopped talking to her mother because her mother wanted her to smarten up, so how can you blame the mother. It’s a good thing most of you folks haven’t got the key to the jailhouse, or there’d be a lot of lynching going on. But then again, that’s American Cowboy Justice for ya!!

  14. tributegirl • February 3, 2008 @ 8:54 AM

    Lynne is the one who pushed her girls into early stardom, they had no childhoods to speak of. That alone is enough to mess with their minds. Look at Michael Jackson, no childhood, he was practically born working, and look at the freak he turned into. People should just let their kids be kids. The price for fame is just way too high.

  15. I JUST FARTED • February 3, 2008 @ 9:16 AM

    Why would ANYONE want to look at Michael Jackson???????????????????????????????????????

    There is no better time for bonding then the time spent returning from the psch ward. What grand stories the two shall share.

  18. Allison • February 3, 2008 @ 7:20 PM

    I think Lynne isn’t to blame…but she sure knows how to cash in on their problems…that’s all I have to say.

  19. Nancy • February 4, 2008 @ 12:35 PM

    tributegirl: If you have ever seen any of Britney’s earlier career interviews, she tells of how she always loved to sing since she was a small child and always wanted to be a star like Madonna, etc. I even saw an interview she did where she told of how she, herself was to blame why her family had no extra money…because SHE was the one who begged her parents to let her go try out for auditions, etc., and how her mom went with her and never pushed her into anything. When they were in NY at Christmas and Britney wanted to go home….Lynne took her home! I don’t believe that her family pushed her to become a star at all!! When you see that your child has a great talent and they see it as well and want to expand on it, you should never try to hold them back.

  20. Anonymous • February 4, 2008 @ 12:36 PM

    Nancy, all kids want to be a big star, whether it’s dancing and singing, or being in the NHL. And that’s fine, but it’s up to the parents to set limits and rules. You should look up some of the interviews of some of the little girls who are in beauty pageants, they tell about how much they love it, how having their eyebrows waxed “tickles”, and how they like putting colored contacts in their eyes. It is all so REHEARSED! They say what their parents tell them to say.

  21. Nancy • February 4, 2008 @ 12:48 PM

    How do you know that there were no limits and rules? Just because YOUR limits and rules would be to not let her go into any auditions, etc. does not mean that she did not have limits and rules, does it? Justin Timberlake had the same kind of life..very similar to Britney’s, but yet he turned out to be sane…so his parents are just wonderful, aren’t they? Christina Aguilera…her mom is alright. Everyone thought Lynne was ok too, until they needed a scapegoat for all Britney’s problems!!!

  22. Anonymous • February 4, 2008 @ 1:53 PM

    Mommy taking her home from NY over Christmas just because it’s what she wanted SHOWS there were no limits or rules, Nancy, you a$$. MY limits and rules WOULD let her go to the auditions, BUT I wouldn’t be taking her home as soon as she started crying about it. It was her mothers responsibility to put some common sense in those girls, and Lynne failed miserably. She got what she wanted, when she wanted it, and that is one thing that has stayed the same, and THAT is why she is such a mess.

  23. Nancy • February 4, 2008 @ 1:56 PM

    Thanks Tribute! For erasing Anonymous’s next comment and then mine. Anonymous would not have been able to handle what I said anyway’s!! Ha ha ha.

  24. Nancy • February 4, 2008 @ 2:00 PM

    YOU are a mess….is your mommy to blame??? I am also entitled to my opinion just as much as you are to yours! Most parents are not to blame for the actions of their adult children…that’s a no-brainer!!

    That’s nice……and who would you be???? Ahhhh, Gina! Long time no hear (wishful thinking!)

  31. Gina • February 4, 2008 @ 11:01 PM

    My sentiments exactly!

    And now I will share a never ending commentary

    I have a daughter that is 16. Our city offers many all ages clubs and most of her friends go, but she doesnt. Nor does she ask to go. She understands that there is a time and place for everything and everything is do-able, but at the right time in your life. You dont allow your kids to lead, you guide them. As adults have laws to abide, so should our kids live within certain boundaries and by family laws or expectations. Lynn Spears sacrificed her values (if she ever had any) because her kids were bringing in the cash. She doesnt understand that lifestyle is based on the values set in place. If you start adjusting your values to fit the lifestyle, you become lost which is exactly what Lynn is doing to her kids. Her foolish announcement that she will be raising Jamies daughter so that she can continue partying shows us exactly where she is coming from. Unfortunately for her, she doesnt see that the door to Hollywood is closing quickly for her family. She should have intervened years ago while she could still do it with some dignity and grace.

    While Lynn neglected her parental responsibilities for the fame and glory of belonging to the Stardom Club, I am busy leading my kids, not following. My main role in life is to raise a daughter to be confident, know her self worth, not compromise her values and never allow a man to take away her dignity. On the flip side, a son to have respect, integrity, compassion and not become one of the a$$holes that many young women seem to be attracted to.

    On that note, will Lynn be mommy to Jamie Lynns child and Jamie be its aunt? Will they make a nice little scrap book for the child of its once famous mother? Will it include Lynns comments that the kid was going to put a damper on Jamies parties so she took it? I wish I lived in Louisiana!!! I need more, I think I have mental problems cuz I can’t get enough of this sh*t!

  32. Gina • February 4, 2008 @ 11:05 PM

    Hello Nancy,
    I am glad to see you are recovering well. I missed your wicked tongue while you were away, but I see you are feeling pretty spunky now 🙂

  33. Gina • February 4, 2008 @ 11:13 PM

    Nancy on February 4, 2008 10:11 pm

    Sorry, that wasnt me. I’ve only played that game the first time I commented (trying to rip you and Karen apart over Britney and Roseanne). Ive been good since then and use Gina blue. I actually prefer people know who they are arguing with. Someone was using Gina for awhile and honestly it was starting to piss me off as well. Now I don’t care, I just skip the comment.

  34. theoriginalkaren • February 5, 2008 @ 1:23 AM

    I tried the same tactic with “Karen” and guess what? It didn’t work. 🙁

    shut up, Arnold.
    Actually what Gina said on Feb 4 at 11:01 is exactly what I was trying to say, except with more “flair”.

  36. Anonymous • February 5, 2008 @ 3:26 AM

    Ok, Nancy, I apologized for my rudeness on another gossip page here on Tribute, and I think you should apologize too. You were pretty rude yourself on the following posts: Feb 4 at 12:48, 1:56, 2:00 (this one was especially rude), and 4:57. There was no need for any of it, from me or you. We should be mature enough to voice our opinions and accept other peoples opinions. I believe Lynne is to blame for the mess her girls have made of their lives, you think they are to blame, not Lynne. Ok, fine. Enough.

  37. tributegirl • February 5, 2008 @ 2:10 PM

    LOL, yeah Karen, just ignore it. Someone has done that to me a couple of times, I just skip right past it, no biggie. And if someone else responds to it, I skip by that too, it doesn’t actually apply to me anyway.

    Ok, Nancy and anonymous, you two might just want to chill out a bit! Seems like tempers are flying!

    I posted the comment on Feb 3 at 8:54 am, and I still believe what I said, that Lynne is mostly to blame for what’s happening to these girls. They are also partly to blame, as is the media, but I personally feel that Lynne is the main one to blame here. I let my kids try out for anything that interests them, right now we are looking at guitar lessons, among other things. If they want to work hard at it, thats ok, if they aren’t interested after all, that’s ok as well. But if I am going to pay for lessons, they are going to give it their full effort while they are there, no whining. Afterwards, if they say they don’t want to go back, fine, we don’t go back. I agree with Gina, we should lead our kids, not follow them.

  38. Nancy • February 5, 2008 @ 7:11 PM

    Anonymous: I do not find my comment on Feb 04 @ 12:48 to be rude towards you. I agree, and was the one who said above, that we are each entitled to our opposite opinions. I may have missed it, but did not see any apology from you. You SHOULD apologize to me….I mean… have alot of nerve calling me dumb a$$ and a$$ for voicing my opinion, when I had NOT said anything bad about you. I will NOT apologize for defending myself against your name calling or for defending my opinion. I am willing to let bygons be bygons though, as I really don’t give much of a flying BEEP what people think of me!!

    tributegirl: Your temper would fly too if someone called you a Dumb A$$ for writing your opinion (that would be part of anonymous’s comment that Tribute deleted)!!

    Gina: I WILL apologize to you….for blaming you for being the ‘double’.

    Double: Get a LIFE!!!!

  39. Nancy • February 5, 2008 @ 7:36 PM

    I said you were a mess AFTER the names, and as for the comments you are making right now….well…let’s just say that we can all see just how apologetic you really are!! Check up above….you called me a Dumb A$$….which Tribute deleted. Then you called me an A$$…in which I responded that you were a beyotch…which Tribute deleted. Then I said you were a mess. Get your facts straight!

    NOW…I am willing to let it go……go….go….go….gone!! But I will not apologize for my defence!!

  40. Anonymous • February 5, 2008 @ 8:45 PM

    I’m still waiting for my apology.

  41. Nancy • February 5, 2008 @ 8:54 PM

    Am I speaking English???? The name calling came before the ATTITUDE!!!! Now get over it!! I DO NOT CARE ANYMORE SO STOP DIRECTING COMMENTS TO ME….IT’S DONE! I WON’T APOLOGIZE FOR DEFENDING MYSELF!!

    As for you admitting to name calling and apologizing for it….you turned around and did it again Feb 05 @ 7:48 pm! I don’t hate you, but I will NEVER apologize for defending myself!

  42. Gina • February 5, 2008 @ 11:21 PM

    Okay enough now. So you guys shed a little blood, stop blowing it all out of proportion! You both dumped on each other, it happens. Do any of you really give a sh*t who is and isn’t to blame for the Spears’ misery? If we all had the same opinion, this site would have zero traffic. I for one enjoy giving a jab once in awhile to the wonderful people here, it makes life a little more interesting. I cannot believe that two of the strongest characters here feel so bloody hurt over something so stupidand that is not directed at anyone in particular. In all fairness to Anonymous, she has extended an offering of peace so kiss and make up and combine that energy towards another target. lol I must admit Ive found this to be the most interesting reading material to date.

    As for me being the double, I can just picture Arnold sitting in front of his screen, rubbing his hands with glee. Nancy , no apology needed as I did set myself up for this at the very beginningGina, Trixxi, Anon, Anonymous and whatever the hell name I used.
