The cover story in this past week’s Star was the problems Lynne Spears is having with news that her daughter Britney Spears is living with *NSYNC’s Justin Timberlake at the pair’s $3 million mansion in Los Angeles. Lynne has reportedly complained to friends, “The whole situation has really got me upset. I’ve always supported Justin and Britney’s relationship and I’ve always wanted Justin for my son-in-law. I love him like one of my own. But that doesn’t mean I want him and Britney to be living together – especially at such a tender age.” Lynne adds, “I don’t believe that it is right for her to be living in sin with Justin.”

Lynne didn’t even go to the premiere of ‘Crossroads’. A few months ago, it would have been impossible to keep her away.”
