X17: We just caught Britney driving all the way up to Valencia, about 30 minutes north of Los Angeles, where she surprised her mom on the set of sis Jamie Lynne’s TV show with legal papers related to a restraining order. As X17online has exclusively reported, Britney is seeking a restraining order against her own mother to keep her mom from visiting with Britney’s two sons Sean and Jayden. The reason? — alleged pain medication abuse by her mom.
A source has told X17 that Britney’s motivation behind this is to stop Britney’s mom from seeing the kids at Kevin’s house, where Lynne and Kevin colluded together previously, to threaten Britney’s custody of the kids if she didn’t go to rehab.
Here’s the kicker … our source says that Britney’s own mother, her estranged husband Kevin Federline, and her former manager Larry Rudolph were instrumental in forcing Britney into treatment at Promises rehab in Malibu in February but that a drug test at the time of Britney’s admission into the center, turned up negative and proved that her system was totally clean of any drugs.

And in other news… Tension between Britney Spears and her mother, Lynne, continues to grow — despite reports of a reconciliation, reports OK! The trouble this time comes from mom’s eagerness to talk to the press. “Brit was furious when she heard her mom had spoken to Us Weekly,” one insider told the mag, explaining that the troubled pop star has had a prickly past with Us. “Brit feels betrayed. Her mom should’ve contacted her — not the media — if she wanted to talk.”
TMZ has learned Britney Spears gave her mom a present today — a lawyer’s letter — and mom was none too pleased.
The video was shot in Valencia, Calif. this afternoon. There are reports circulating that the papers are a restraining order, but TMZ has confirmed that is NOT the case. It is a letter from an out-of-state lawyer. By the way, Britney could not legally serve her mom with a restraining order if she was the one seeking it.
Sources say Britney feels that her mom turned on her in the days before she entered Promises rehab. She also feels Lynne Spears is not stable enough to be around Brit’s kids because she may have her own “issues.” We’re told the letter bluntly asks Lynne to stay away from the children if she is taking any medications that would impair her ability to be around them.
We’re also told Spears has become super-protective of her kids and is taking back a lot of the control that others were exercising over her life.
