Britney and Her Mom, “Slap It Out, B*tch”

Star magazine reports that Britney and her mother’s bad blood is the result of a physical altercation that took place in the middle of June between the two. Described as a “shocking slapfest,” the two duked it out, leaving “Lynne shaken and Britney more determined than ever to cut her mother out of her life for good.” Juicy. Tell me more. Well, all right…on the date in question:

“Lynne barged into the house and insisted on taking the kids out to spend some private time with them,” an insider told the tab. “She didn’t ask or suggest, she demanded!” says the insider. “Then she began denigrating Britney’s mothering skills and losing her temper at the same time!”

This mysterious source revealed that this scuffle resulted in Britney serving her mother with legal papers and bad poetry (ouch). Word has it that Mama Spears is contemplating filing a countersuit of her own, but is holding back because she believes her daughter is simply lashing out as a result of her depression. Wow. That is actually quite sad. But seriously, Lynne, I’d get all the available umbrellas out of the house, next time you two talk. Just to be safe.
