Britney’s OK! Family Portrait, Spears Family Slams Dr. Phil
It’s a veritable Spears family reunion on the cover of OK! magazine, with Britney beaming while flanked by sons Jayden James and Sean Preston, along with sister Jamie Lynn featured in her own private corner of the mag for her teenage pregnancy. The family picture was taken in Britney’s backyard a month ago and although the boys look cute, I can’t help but wonder why exactly they’re dressed like the lead singer of Hootie and the Blowfish from his 90s heyday. According to fashion photographer Dani Brubaker, Britney was gushing over her children during the shoot and after, “I’m told that when she saw the photographs she cried for over an hour and stared at them all night long.”
Well, a less-welcome invasion in Britney’s personal life has been Dr. Phil McGraw. The talk show host maintains that Britney’s family asked him to intervene, but the Spears family is denying these claims. According to Lynne Spears’ rep, McGraw’s actions at Cedars-Sinai hospital were “self-serving” and “He was not invited to make this a public display.” To his credit, I have a feeling the Spears family doesn’t really know what they want.
Meanwhile, it’s also been revealed that Britney had a restraining order placed on her for the duration of her standoff Thursday night at her home. Lasting five business days, the “emergency protective order” was placed on the pop star in the hopes of neutralizing the situation.
Well, I’m pretty sure this smile is going to haunt my dreams tonight. Thanks, OK!.
