Pop beauty Britney Spears' burgeoning relationship with her step-daughter KORI is going so well, the singer can't bear to be apart from the young tot.

Spears' husband KEVIN FEDERLINE infamously left his then-pregnant girlfriend, former MOESHA actress Shar Jackson to be with the superstar last April (04). Jackson is mother to his two children - Kori, three, and KALEB, seven months.

On the TOXIC hitmaker's official website, Spears laments, "I haven't seen Kori in two weeks because I've been home in Louisiana with my mom.

"Hopefully Kori can come here for a visit soon because I miss her so much.

"I bought her the cutest dresses for Easter and to wear this summer. I love buying kids clothes."
