Lynne Spears Blames Herself For Britney Spears Breakdown 12/9/08


Britney Spears' mother Lynne feels she is to blame for her pop star daughter's public breakdown. The singer enjoyed huge success in her teenage years before experiencing a meltdown after losing custody of her two sons Sean Preston, three, and Jayden James, two, last year (07). Two stints in hospital in January (08) also heightened fears for her wellbeing.


Her mother Lynne insists she feels responsible for her daughter's downfall, and even considered naming her recently published memoir All My Fault instead of Through The Storm.


She says, "I can laugh about it (the title) now, but did I feel that way at the time? Yes, I did and, if I'm being totally honest, I still do. "When her life was such a success, what did she need me for?


And when things took a turn for the worse, I was out, because other people - dancers, managers - were closer to her, and with her day and night. Being a mother, you can't help but have regrets about what you did and didn't do for your kids, and I'm no different."


And the elder Spears believes the root of her daughter's problems stem from the star's childhood, when she struggled to support the family while her husband Jamie struggled with alcoholism. She adds: "I think I was an enabler to Britney.


I would overcompensate and I tried to make things seem happier when my kids were growing up, because I was aware of the deficit. "Maybe I didn't give her the skills to handle the hard times. Maybe I sheltered her too much from the realities, and sometimes that's not a good thing."
