Britney Spears reunited with her mother Lynne for the first time in years on Wednesday.
The Grammy-winning singer and her mother met at her home in Southern California and the mother and daughter spent a half-hour catching up, a source told TMZ.
According to the report from the outlet, the Oops!…I Did It Again artist ‘was receptive enough to let her inside her home and spend some time catching up’ after years of dissension between them stemming from the longtime conservatorship Britney lived under Lynne’s husband Jamie controlled.
Lynne flew from her native Louisiana to LAX early Wednesday, TMZ reported, and was taken to the resident of Britney’s manager Cade Hudson. From there, she took an Uber to the home the singer shares with husband Sam Asghari, 29.
Britney was aware that her mother would be visiting, but did not know exactly when, a source told the outlet. Britney and her mother spent about a half-hour together, the source said, noting Asghari was also on hand.

‘Britney, your whole life I have tried my best to support your dreams and wishes!’ Lynne said. ‘And also, I have tried my best to help you out of hardships! I have never and will never turn my back on you!
She added: ‘Your rejections to the countless times I have flown out and calls make me feel hopeless! I have tried everything. I love you so much, but this talk is for you and me only, eye to eye, in private.’
In July of 2022, Britney said that Lynne had been instrumental in planning for her to be involuntary committed prior to the commencement of the conservatorship in 2008.
Britney said in a Notes app post that Lynne had been with her just before she was put on a 5150 hold; removed photos of her from the family homes.
‘Did you tell them every morning when I would try to find coffee there were no pictures of me up in the kitchen, just Maddie and Jamie Lynn???’ Britney said. ‘Ever single morning I would put a picture of me by you guys … and every morning you would put it away before I woke up.’
