Troubled singer Britney Spears has a new addition to her growing army of concerned friends - former love Justin Timberlake's mum.
Lynn Harless has been making frantic trips to Britney's Beverly Hills home, where the Toxic star is currently residing after losing custody of children Sean Preston, two, and one-year-old Jayden James to ex-husband Kevin Federline earlier this month (Oct07).
Harless has remained close to Britney since her split from Timberlake in 2002, and is desperate to help the singer through a difficult time.
She says, "I love Britney to death. She is a sweet girl. I just hate what she is going through."
