Britney’s mother claiming around €562,000 in legal expenses

It has become more obvious today, Friday, November 5, why pop star Britney Spears attacked her mother Lynne as she did on Instagram. Britney claimed that it was her mother Lynne who had suggested to her father Jamie that she should be placed under guardianship. The singer accused her mother, on social media, of destroying her life.

In fact, it was allegedly she who asked her mother to become involved in the case in any capacity, to “help her end her nightmare, and the crisis she was going through”.
