A source says that Lynne encouraged Britney, who had recently ended her stint on The Mickey Mouse Club, to date the jock to cement her popularity. Thanks, Mom!

Grandmother x 3 Mrs. Spears was also aware that Britney was experimenting with drugs when she flew to Los Angeles to record her breakthrough Baby One More Time album.

According to the source: “[Lynne] says if she had known helping Britney follow her dreams would cost her her soul, she would never have done it.”
